At long last the approach that has helped thousands of learners memorize Japanese kanji has been adapted to help students with Chinese characters.

Richardson, cover the writing and meaning of the 1,000 most commonly used characters in the Chinese writing system, plus another 500 that are best learned at an early stage. (Book 2 adds another 1,500 characters for a total of 3,000.)
