Emily Rash, a Mathematics Teacher in Monroe, LA, says that our Passing the LEAP books correlate perfectly with the LEAP GEE Exit Exams. Among her students, 75 percent had previously failed the math portion of the exam. She writes that after the students studied with our workbooks, "EVERYONE PASSED!"
D'Lane McMillin, K-12 District Math Curriculum Coordinator for Desert Sands Unified School District in CA, writes, "Your Passing the California Algebra 1 State Exam book is exactly what we needed for our students. It is tailor-made for the California state standards. It also includes quality prerequisite skill materials necessary for student success in Algebra."
Joyce Mason, a parent from Covington, GA, says, "My son has taken the Georgia Graduation Test five times and failed. Finally, last spring, his Science Teacher gave him your Passing the Georgia Science Graduation Test book to study over the summer. After he took the test, he walked in the door, almost floating with self-confidence, and said, 'Mom! I passed!'"
Evelyn Bedgood, Calhoun High School, AL Guidance Counselor, says that the students who have used our Passing the NEW Alabama High School Graduation Exam books are telling her, as well as other students, "If you study American Book Company's books, you WILL pass the test!"
Robert Bean, an English Teacher in California, has this to say after using our Language Arts series with his 110 students: "Students at all high school levels are able to understand the clear and concise presentation of California's critical concepts. After my school implemented your California Language Arts Review series for help with both the CAHSEE and CAT-6 mastery, our API score increased over the year from 415 to 461!"
Barry Ruffin from Cincinnati, OH, says, "Your Passing the Ohio Graduation Test books are the only ones that I've found that explain the reasoning behind the answers. Books that give the answers without explanations are not of much value to a student who is already having problems with a particular subject. I plan to use your books for all of the upcoming Ohio Graduation Tests."
Alice McCann, a Mathematics Teacher from Augusta, GA, writes, "Thank you so very much for the Preview Copies. These books are so awesome! Thank you so much. I know several parents whose children NEED these books. I just cannot thank you enough. In a magnet school world, parents do not have a choice...they need these books. I am so excited about the potential and expansion possible with this package. I don't know how your company came up with this concept, but be assured this is the day and the hour for this material. No Child Left Behind creates an environment for these materials to thrive in...and I like the vision! Many blessings to you and your company!"
Dan Richard from Remlap, AL, writes, "Two years ago, one of the high school math teachers in my county made me aware of your book, Basics Made Easy Mathematics Review. The sequence is perfect, the simplicity is ideal for the student, and everything is covered in such a complete way. Any student completing your book should be ready for the rigors of high school math. It is a remarkable book, and I have recommended it to several math teachers in our county and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to skip the clutter and get the basics to their students. Thank you for providing such a valuable instrument to math teachers everywhere."
Benton M. Foster from Alaska writes, "I recently moved to Alaska after having taught in Louisiana for six years. I have found no materials here that compare to your Passing the LEAP Graduation Exit Exam series. It is my opinion that my new school district would benefit greatly from the purchase and use of your books. In the LEAP Social Studies book, your concise representation of American History is without equal. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank you, both for myself and on behalf of my students, for the immeasurable aid you provided me in the last few years in Louisiana. I thank you in advance for your continued assistance."
Shelly Boyd, a Language Arts Teacher in Midland, TX, writes that ten of her seniors failed the TAKS 11 Language Arts test twice. After studying our Tackling the TAKS 11 in Language Arts series for only three weeks, eight of her ten students passed the next time!
Martin Strauss from Norwalk, CA, says, "The California Mathematics Review book is great! The diagnostic test has been a great tool for us to determine what needs to be taught and also in helping the students figure out where their weaknesses are."
