I purchased this to give a different approach to grammar. We have previously used Rod & Staff (which is excellent and I love it). Grammar Ace is a great introductory course to grammar, but if your children have completed a rigorous program (as mine have) they would probably use this as a fun review course. So apparently my children had already had a good foundation of grammar with Rod & Staff and found the Grammar Ace to be just review. They did enjoy the fun activities and the videos from the Grammar Rocks DVD. I will be using this again with my 6 yo when he is ready for an introduction. I highly reccommend this to introduce grammar before studying grammar in the middle and high school years.

Pros.
Teacher's manual with all answers and notes to present each lesson.
Student workbook
Grammar Rocks DVD scheduled in the teacher's manual
Minimal time needed for a complete lesson - 20 min. aprx.
Makes learning grammar fun with many activities that are a non-traditional approach

Cons
No diagramming
