Looking for some suggestions for high school math and grammar for college bound students. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

For high school math, Saxon will probably work fine (up through Algebra II or so). For grammar - well, I personally hated English grammar, and promptly forgot almost all of it. I had college-level reading and writing skills already, so why bother to learn the theory behind what I already knew? The best way to learn grammar, as it turned out, was actually to study a second language. All those parts of speech that didn't look very valuable before suddenly became essential to know.

(don't, however, waste time on Latin, like I did - choose a more useful language such as Spanish)

I love Teaching Textbooks for math. It comes with a solutions CD.

I also like Easy Grammar. It is simple and easy to understand.

Winston Grammar. I also agree with Theodore, learning another language gives all that grammar info a purpose.
