After being so excited about finding the hardback Saxon math books and things, I did discover one difference which DIDN’T end up saving me any money: the “homeschool edition” facts practice workbooks also contain the chapter tests, and the school edition DOES NOT. 🙁
The Homeschool Edition Solutions Manual contains the solutions for the facts practice pages, the lessons, AND the tests. The school edition ONLY contains the solutions for the chapter lessons. ARG! OK you live and learn, right??
Rather than spend the $145 for the teacher’s manuals (there are TWO!), I’m just going to buy the homeschool edition solutions manual and ONE facts practice workbook (we’ll copy the tests for use with my second daughter) and allow her to use the other practice workbook I bought. 😛
