This material is well organized and though contains a lot of information, that information doesn't seem overwhelming as it comes in good amounts within appropriate contexts. Object should prove useful especially for beginning levels of Chinese. However, since the pinyin system is mostly used, beginners don't get the opportunity to reinforce character learning.
