4.0 out of 5 stars Great for reference, not so great for beginners., 2 Mar 2003
This review is from: Essential Kanji: 2, 000 Basic Japanese Characters Systematically Arranged for Learning and Reference (Paperback)
If you're a beginning, this book may just baffle you with all the thousands of kanji! It doesn't help you to learn the characters so if you're starting from scratch, I'd recommend "Remembering the Kanji I" by James W. Heisig. This book has a great visual method to help you learn is kanji.
However, I would recommend this book after you've learnt kanji. Its great for reference because you can easily flick to the kanji you want for a quick reminder. All Japanese students should have their own copy (preferably with them at all times if you intend to live in Japan!).
