Stop wasting money a bunch of random books that focus on individual aspects of the HSK, requiring you to make sense of it all. Follow a system, the Comprehensive Guide System. It’s a four-step process:


1. Understand the HSK

Understand the purpose of the HSK and the basic outline of the test. This guide will give you an overview of what the HSK actually is and why it’s important.

2. Cover the Basics

Whether you’re just preparing to take level 1 of the HSK or if you feel you’re ready but want to boost your fundamentals, the HSK Comprehensive Guide prepares you with all the basic information you’ll need to pass the HSK Chinese test. The most important are HSK Level 1 Vocabulary and Grammar.


Most students use alphabetical vocabulary lists, which don’t work well! How are you going to remember all the words that start with “shi” in one day? Instead, the HSK Comprehensive Guide supplies you with all the vocabulary needed for the HSK test level 1 in a methodological way. The vocabulary in this guide is categorized, which has been shown to help language learners more easily memorize vocabulary and improve your overall Chinese learning. Though a small part of the guide, the HSK level 1 vocabulary is the meat of your HSK study material:

Grammar is often a mystery to both students and teachers. But the Level 1 Comprehensive Guide lays out the most important grammar points for the HSK. Learning these points can save you hours of wasted time trying to wrap your head around the most confusing aspects of the somewhat illogical nature of Chinese HSK level 1 grammar.

3. Learn the Optimal Strategy

Too many students register for the HSK without having a strategy for the test. (This even happens at higher levels, such as HSK 3!) If you go into the test center without a game plan, you’ll not only be more likely to fail but you’ll go through the problems more slowly. The HSK Level 1 Guide teaches you exactly what the HSK graders are looking for on each question. We break down each section into different types of questions, explaining how you should approach each type. You’ll find that with these strategies, you no longer need to overthink anything. You’ll not only know what’s coming but you’ll know how to attack it when it gets there.
