I gave this two stars instead of one because if you're using the Simplified character version of the main textbook, this workbook will show you the Traditional version of those characters. It's useful to know how to read traditional characters because they are used in the rim countries and Hong Kong.
You'll only want to buy this if your teacher will make you turn in these sheets as homework or otherwise requires it. If she just wants you to use this to practice on your own, you can find stroke orders for characters for free online; the only thing this book will save you is the hassle of having to look it up. However, once you learn the basics of how characters are written, you won't need anyone to tell you the order anymore. Further, you will practice writing a character far more often than what fits in the 10-15 squares you're given here.
If you have an iPhone or iPad (the latter of which is an indispensable resource while learning an Asian language), the free dictionary app Pleco will do everything this book does for free. Further, you can use it to look up any character, while this book only has the 400 or so that appear in the accompanying textbook.
Second, the male voice on the tape is difficult to discern, especially in the pronunciation series of exercises.
