With the collection of real questions and the summary of test points, Chinese learners can determine the level of their own test according to their own situation and then enter the preparation stage. So, what are the bibliographies for HSK? Let’s move on.

3. HSK Syllabus

This book is a short-term intensive training course for HSK (Advanced) candidates and Chinese teachers who guide HSK (Advanced) candidates. It takes examination points and difficulties as the outline, takes real questions as an example, combines teaching and practice, comprehensive and systematic, synchronous exercises, timely summary, and strong practicability. Therefore, this set of books is very suitable for the examination-oriented guidance and intensive training stage for students.

In addition, there are many problems in the examination, such as how to grasp the ideas of the author of the listening and reading.

More importantly, there are many student errors in the course. It is recommended that candidates choose to use the course according to their level.

The above-recommended HSK learning and examination books are not recommended for everyone to buy. One can’t buy all of these sets and pass the exam, just only one HSK book or two tutoring HSK books. Obviously, energy and time are not enough. It is suggested that Chinese learners can choose their own bibliography to prepare for the examination according to their own Chinese learning level. I wish you all good results in HSK!
