Worked for me, for the most part,
This review is from: Remembering the Kana: A Guide to Reading and Writing the Japanese Syllabaries in 3 Hours Each (part 1) (Japanese Edition) (Paperback)
I am about 5 lessons in, tomorrow I finish my last one. In the first lesson I used the image the author would put to a hiragana to help you remember it, if it was an easy image to remember, so out of the nine I only put an image to four. Those four I remembered easily and the other five I had to write and read over and over to get; it was exhausting and hard to say the least. So in Lesson 2 I tried something new; instead of not using the imagery provided I made up my own, the author uses the boomerang, and the word 'maypole', these were hard for me to pick up because I couldn't see a boomerang or a 'maypole', also some of the images she gives you are really complicated and long, so I started to make up my own images to go with the hiragana, and in the last three lessons I have memorized the hiragana really fast. So yes this book is good, but if your having a hard time with the images the author tries to put to a hiragana, make your own (example: I thought the boomerang looked more like a fish, so I made up an image that involved a fish).
