This is a great book for those who can memorize quickly and without much trouble. It merely presents the katakana characters in an order that promotes construction of vocabulary, giving the reader a sense of accomplishment at learning new words. This is great for those who are good at other languages or memorize easily, but I would imagine that if mere repetition of writing the symbol does not drill it into your head, you would have a tough time with this one. It provides no space to write in the book, I suggest getting graph paper and writing the characters/vocab. down as you learn them, it really helped me memorize.
