I've used levels A-E of RightStart Math, and I have been very pleased. The curriculum excels in helping children grasp the concepts behind the calculations and instills a very strong understanding of how numbers work. The sequence is different from traditional math programs, but it makes sense and works well. At times the book seems to jump randomly from one topic to another, seemingly unrelated, but I discovered that if I just followed along, eventually it made sense. The program uses the trademark card games for review, which my boys both enjoyed, and the games allowed them to master their basic facts with no fuss and lots of fun. There were many times when my sons made conceptual leaps to new ideas before they were officially introduced because of the foundational understanding laid in RightStart. Highly recommended.
