This book Hacking Chinese: The Complete Guide To HSK is great for any beginner wanting to learn Chinese or to help you pass HSK. I thought it was great that not only are you learning basic Chinese words and phrases, but quizzes and questions are included too, to help you gauge just how much you are learning.
This book is written in such a way that it is pretty easy to learn and understand what the author is teaching. You can download this for your Kindle for $3.99 and it is well worth the price. I love that it is in a Kindle version, so I can keep going back textbook would.
Disclosure: I received this book at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.
