argh. math

i CANNOT decide on a math program for Kiryn. i am on the fence between Abeka 2 and math-u-see beta. the first will be following what we did last year (abeka 1) last year we bought the teachers manual and all the extras. i found everything but the workbook to be unnessasary. so to buy the new workbook $13.25. but a friend told me a friend used Abeka and her kid had to take remedial math in college....
the math-u-see program is awesome, but for the whole program i will shell out $85!!!
what do i do??? anyone have advice?

We too have begun to use Teaching Textbooks for our high schooler this year. I believe they start their books right before Algebra. Up to this point (Algebra 1) we used A Beka with no problem. We have 3 others in A Beka still (k-3) I only bought the workbooks as well, much cheaper and it seemed to work well for us.
Good luck!
