To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was listed as the Canadian version but I was mailed the American version. Amazon was good about returning and refunding but be careful if you're Canadian. This book no longer comes in print. You have to buy the ebook and print it yourself. Otherwise it's SUCH a GREAT product. I've used these workbooks with my kids every summer for years.
This particular summer bridging book was recommended by my child’s fourth grade teacher. We are finding that the day by day format isn’t working so well for our student, however. She doesn’t necessarily need to do this everyday but does enjoy a workbook to dip into now and then over the break. Being a rule follower, it’s kind of stressing her out if she doesn’t have time to get to it. If you have a student who really benefits from daily exercises and thrives on the daily sticker progress, this book would be fantastic.
It worked great for the 18 months that it lasted. However, we now have a battery fault and given that we have no warranty facilities nearby, we will have to chalk this up as a loss - even though we're within the warranty period. Prior to this fault, we would have easily given this product five stars.
I bought this for my 4th grader that is going into 5th grade. She's almost completed the book, but I've been disappointed that the pages are having her do things that she hasn't learned yet. Some pages have multiplying decimals and other advanced topics that I know she will learn in 5th grade.
