What is the book Saxon Math 54 home study packet?

I mean this is very misleading I have no idea what year it is, what edition it is.Can someone please please tell me a little more about this book?

The reason I ask is that I ordered another Saxon book from here that was only the answer key and not the text  book it self

When purchasing curriculum items, you should always look up the ISBNs online.  There are typically many parts to most math & LA curricula.

I try to send in an update in for any item I see that I know isn't listed correctly (missing info).  Or I at least tag listings with "teacher guide", "workbook", etc.

You can always order the item, then send a PM to the sender and ask what item in the curriculum it is.  If it's not what you want, then you can just cancel your order.  Just tell the sender that you need to cancel if it's not what you want/need.  I do that a lot, and others have done it with me.  However, anything I post *always* gets an update sent in so that the listing shows correctly if it's an answer key, test booklet, TG, etc.

Abeka items are really confusing since they don't have ISBNs.  The system assigns each Abeka item a system number.  So the same book may have 100 different "ISBNs" (which really aren't).  So it that case, it's really important to know what you're ordering.

Another publisher that gets confusing is Alpha-Omega and their Lifepacs.  You can tell which ones are TGs by the binding.  Their Lifepac TGs are spiral bound, while the student books are paperback/softcover.

Thank I think 'll do that from now on. It really does get confusing. I wonder if there is another way of listing these books since they don't have a number on them.. I know it would be very had with so many books

in the system.

 Thank You,

Caroline

I would post a list of what you have in the red sticky thread here (bookshelf promos and deals).  Those looking for Abeka may be subscribed to that thread and be glad for your posting!
