Advanced Cheat Sheets (Vocabulary and Characters)
Here you can find advanced HSK resources for the new HSK 3.0 exam, which starts in early 2022. You will receive two PDF documents in A4 format:
- HSK7*, HSK8* and HSK9* characters cheat sheet (12 pages; 1200 characters)
- HSK7*, HSK8* and HSK9* vocabulary cheat sheet (12 pages; 5636 words)
Personally, I color all the words I learn (it’s cool to track your everyday progress) and for really problematic words I write pinyin and meaning above/below the characters. The cheat sheet gradually becomes an irreplaceable resource.
BEWARE! THERE ARE TRAPS! Tone changes may have happened for some characters (I’m looking at you, “一”, “不”, and that weird “33” category).
* Although there doesn’t exist an official distinction, the vocabulary and characters for the Advanced HSK levels were still divided into three equal parts for a better learning experience, and a greater sense of accomplishment.
