I'm going to admit up front that I am lazy. I don't want to have to go behind my kids and figure out the answers to the problems they do:)

 

Anyhow, I just got

 
This book, when it came, was the second edition. I need to get a solutions manual to go with it. Do the answers/problems change between editions? We're currently using Horizon's and that doesn't seem to be an issue. I just don't want to order a solutions manual (the cheapest I found was $7 plus shipping) and have it be unusable to me.

I'm not sure if they're different or not. I'd post an add on here and in the Book Bazaar.  2nd edition is fairly old and many have switched to other curriculums so you may find one on here.

Eileen,

I am using Math 65 right now.  I have the 1st edition text and the 2nd edition solutions manual.  There are some changes between the two editions, so you will need to make sure that you buy the same edition.

You might try this website. Most of the books are pretty reasonable priced and you may be able to find an older edition. It's free to post and you can put out a wanted ad for the item you are looking for. I have had great success buying and selling. Hope you find what you need.

We had some stuff donated to our support group and there may be what you need in there.  If it's part of a set, though, I won't break it up since we'll keep it for our lending library.  But if I find it on its own, I can send it to you.

Can anyone tell me the ISBN# for the Saxon Math 65 homeschool solutions book? I can't find the book just by searching. I ordered a solutions manual, but it turns out it's 3rd edition and there is a big difference between the two.

Don'T hesitate to call the company and ask them which publication of it matches your curriculum. Then you will know exactly what you need. They have been very nice to offer information to me in the past.
