How much of Foerster Algebra and Trig book to cover Algebra II?

Recommended Posts

We are about to start using Foerster Algebra and Trig book next week.  We were supposed to start earlier this year, but we ended up repeating Algebra I using Foerster book since they initially used MUS for Algebra I.  I want to know how much to use for Algebra II.  We will be doing Pre-calculus next year, and still haven't figured out what text to use.  I have read that some are not as fond of Foerster for Pre-calculus.  I will have to use something at home for Pre-calculus as money is tight, and we will have no funds for online options.

Conventional wisdom is that the first 12 chapters are Algebra 2, but the more I look at Foerster, the more I think we're going to do the whole book. We might do Derek Owens for PreCalc, but we finish the non-trig precalc topics with ALEKs or something off of the list of recommended texts from the author of the Novare book (which I notice does not contain Foerster's PreCalc book): https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21AODVtO1FFFkHTdc&cid=698BD5FB30473AFB&id=698BD5FB30473AFB%211004&parId=698BD5FB30473AFB%21994&o=OneUp


There is also Philfour, which can be for free or very economically.
