After reading reviews, I thought that this workbook could "stand-alone" but had optional additional materials like a text book and CDs. It seemed like the CDs and textbook would enhance the workbook, but were not necessary for the majority of the worksheets.
I was wrong.
The reviews include reviews for the textbook which caused the confusion. I wish the seller would make more efforts to keep reviews for the two different products separated.
The mix of reviews led me to buy a product I would not have bought otherwise.
While it is not necessarily wrong to sell a workbook that completely depends on other products, that information needs to be clear in the description - especially when the reviews cover multiple products.
The exercises are great except the answer key is not provided. Only way to obtain the answer key is to contact Cheng & Tsui. However, they won't give you the passcode unless you are affiliated with a learning institution. They told me that they can't give me the answer key due to security reasons. [How can anyone sell a workbook without providing an answer key???]
Background I recently decided to learn Mandarin but I work full-time and my schedule isn't flexible enough where I would be able to take night courses, so I set out to teach myself (with the help of my girlfriend, a native speaker). I looked up several books on Amazon and cross referenced them to local universities to see which were "tried and true" for college level learning. The Integrated Chinese series appeared to be widely used so I purchased the level 1 part 1 textbook and workbook.
Book Structure There are 10 chapters and each chapter is broken down into two sub-chapters that are identical in structure. Each sub-chapter begins with a dialogue that introduces that new words and grammar rules. Next you are presented with a vocabulary list of new words which generally will consist of 10-20 new words. After the vocab list comes the new grammar rules followed by practice exercises. Each chapter has a theme such as hobbies, traveling, family, etc...
