I used these too to learn the first 500 characters, but I found I had a tendency to learn the character and the pinyin, but not the tone, because you can only test yourself mentally. They're also a bit cumbersome to carry around. And after the first 1,000 characters (there's a vol 2) you need to start making your own.
Best solution in my view is to buy a cheap Palm computer from e-bay (I paid ��20 or so for a reconditioned Zire 31) and purchase this software www.pleco.com it comes with free sets of flashcards that cover all the HSK essential characters (about 5,000
I think) , you can make your own lists of flashcards from vocab you're studying and most importantly for me you can test yourself on reading, writing and pronounciation.
If anyone wants my Tuttle cards vol 1 though, they're yours for the price of a drink :-)
I found the best solution
