Ni hao.

I've been learning Chinese for a couple of months (well I have a beginner class just 2 hours a week).

Anyway, I need to study more so I'm looking for a good beginners book that also have audio so that I can listen to and practice the pronunciation etc.

As I'll be studying at home I'll need to be able to check the answers - so it's key that the book (or pdf file) also has the answer key.

Any recommendations? Xie xie.

I think your question has as many good answers as there are people studying Chinese. I really liked the Integrated Chinese series, which seems to be kind of the standard for (at least) college level classes. When I was studying it they had tapes you could listen to. I memorized all of them and thought it was a great series.
