I purchased the Personal Algebra Tutor (PAT). The system is not has functional as I wanted or expected, and there are several problems it will not solve, or certain problems will freeze up the system. The program is OK but there are too many limitations and several technical issues. It took three email from their tech support just to activate the program.
I am a parent of an 8th grader:The software itself works amazingly well  just enter an algebraic equation and it will show you step by step how to solve and offer clear, brief explanations, invaluable for checking homework or reviewing a poorly understood concept. The practice test with printable answer key is a great self check with a seemingly endless supply of nonrepeating questions. Just keep taking the tests until you get them all right = an A+ in math.
This is the program I have been waiting for... it really is speeding up my algebra assignment completions.
I am a 9th grade student and always wondered how some students always got good marks in mathematics but could never imagine that Ill be one of them. Hats off to Algebra Professor!
