I am looking for a "what they need to know" type thing. Just wondering if anyone uses them and if so, where do you get them? I found one at worldbook.com and was just looking for others for comparison.

World book is the most well known one online. I've glanced at it, but I've never used it or any other one as I can't see the point. Real kids don't tend to match them, real kids tend to be all over the place in understanding. Plus if you buy a math curriculum like MUS it has it's own scope and sequence which will differ from those type of books.

You could also try your public school's website. I know ours has the SOLs by grade and subject (SOL = standards of learning in VA). Yours might also have something that gives what's required to be learned.

We use guides of several states and we pick the hardest stuff but it never works out like that.
