Reviews - What do customers think about A Handbook for 1,000 Basic Chinese Characters?

Good, but not great!  Feb 24, 2008
I bought this with the aspiration of a great character dictionary and was slighty disappointed. While, it offers a good account of the most commonly used characters, it certainly doesn't offer the best methods for looking up those characters. It does however, present a large amount of example words and sentences associated with each character, this was a plus as most character dictionaries only focus on offering words used with the characters.

No colored tabs on the side, and limited indexes.
