This is one of the audiobooks I bought when I was looking for Japanese language audiobooks under $10.00. It's also one of the few that I bought that I liked. It starts you off with a few key phrases. After that you're given chances to say the word out loud and it's used in sample dialogues. After reviewing and dialogues you get to review the entire unit again in something they call mou ichidi (one more time). I do think when you're learning a language repetition is necessary to retain new information. This one is a great and cheap audiobook for complete beginners. Non beginners won't get much out of this unless they want a quick refresher.
