    I'm not a fan of it.

    I'm not a fan either.

    I find it bothersome that there is not enough spiral review. Concepts are introduced and never show up again. The application section of each lesson may or may not involve the skills that were being taught and the skills that are required to solve the problem may or may not have even been taught yet.

    I use the book very sparingly.

    I was a freelance writer for HM for both this text and Texas. The books were designed around your yearly tests and, yes, I did not see a lot of spiraling.
