Great approach to math, for the one who loves math OR the one who picks it up easily
This is our second set of AoPS (we used PreAlgebra as well). AoPS is a great approach for the person who loves math, as it walks the student through the "why". The student is first presented with problems to solve or figure out why something works before they are presented with the math "rule" that they could use to solve the problem. My nephew loves this approach (as he loves math). However, while my son picks up math quickly, he most certainly doesn't LOVE math or even like it much), so he doesn't care about the "why". For him, the chapters are too tedious because he doesn't want to try and solve/discover principles on his own before being presented with the relevant math rule. What has worked for us is for me to just teach him the concepts (essentially highlighting the "math rules" or concepts within each section), work through some of the sample problems with him, then let him work through the exercises on his own. I would agree with another reviewer that it might be nice to have just a few more exercises for them to work through, but all in all it's a great approach. My son wouldn't like other curricula with much more "math drill" because it would feel like busy work to him. I think the layout of the books are good, too, unlike others that look like extremely dry textbooks.

A great option for advanced students!
Art of Problem Solving is a great option for advanced students. I don't recommend it for those that don't like math or those that get very upset when math is hard or tricky, but for kids that love math and love problem solving, then Art of Problem Solving is a wonderful option!

Not for everyone, but worth a try
This is a different approach to math. We tried out the samples at AoPS website before jumping into this book. My dd had already completed Foerster Algebra 1, so the first half of the book is mostly review for her. It is very much for a student who wants to know "why" when they do math.

Comprehensive
Good approach with a more narrative way of explaining concepts, logical sequencing of topics, comprehensive, with lots of good problems which are worked through for the student.
What could make this program even better would be that there are more problems and exercises to be solved by the student.

We just finished the AOPS PreAlgebra book and it really made my son think about math more than any other curriculum we have used. I'm hoping the Algebra book will be the perfect next step.
