This work covers all the 1945 characters in the "General Use" set of Japanese characters, with particularly detailed coverage of the 1009 essential characters that Japanese children must learn in the first six years of grade school. Within the essential set, the characters are presented according to the latest arrangement by grade, which is now based more on their frequency in everyday language than the complexity of their composition.
