But I don’t know Heisig-sensei’s kana books at all.

As for making sense or no sence. Hiragana and Katakana can be learned and remembered fast and convenient when using the right method.

In terms of usefulness, this book had very little for me. Now, back to the kanji. It’s also possible to maintain kana without using them in context. Notify me of new posts by email.
