Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but only ~2,000 kanji, 23 Jun. 2002
This book is excellent for what it aims to do, and that's be a compact dictionary for beginners. It's well set up, has stroke-order diagrams for most kanji, and the SKIP lookup system is fantastically easy to look up most Kanji. It's only got just over 2,000 kanji, but if you're a learner, this is completely indespensible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but get the Kana Version, 23 Jun. 2002
As for content, this book seems very good. It doesn't swamp you with a lot of irrelevant vocabulary, like other books I've seen. However, I would recommend you first purchase "Remebering the Hiragana / Remembering the Katakana" double book, and then buy the Kana version of this book. You will find it much easier to progress and will make less errors on pronounciation should you do it this way - and you really, really should!
