Top critical review
It's OK; good for reading and writing, bad for grammar and listening/pronunciation.

Teaches you characters and reading as well as related words. However, it does not teach you the grammar. It gives a workbook section with the words, but you are expected to know the grammar used from another source which is kind of a minor problem. Also, I wish there was audio either on a CD or online, but you will have to look up the pronunciation if you do not understand pinyin and its sounds.
