I have the Seton Confirmation prep book if you would like it free of charge...actually, I have two, no surprise, so you can have both as it is helpful to have one to read along with if you do it together. Remind me before MNO and I will bring it along.

Sounds good...all of it, esp. the Algebra...LOL LOL. I will teach it for you...I love algebra!
