Authorized by Hanban, HSK Standard Course is developed under the joint efforts of Beijing Language and Culture University Press and Chinese Testing International (CTI). With HSK test papers as its primary source, HSK Standard Course is characterized by a humorous style, familiar topics and a scientific course design. Matching the HSK test in all aspects, from the content, form to the levels, it is a series of new-type course books embodying the idea of "combining testing and teaching, and promoting learning and teaching by testing". It is suitable for the Confucius Institutes in different countries as well as other Chinese teaching institutions and self-taught learners. 
The whole series is divided into six levels matching the HSK test, with one volume for each of Levels 1-3 and two volumes for each of Levels 4-6, totaling nine volumes. With a textbook, a workbook and a teacher’s book in each volume, there are altogether 27 books. This is Textbook 5A, which includes 18 lessons, covering about 1200 words (half of the Level 5 vocabulary) and the detailed explanations of 60 language points and 18 groups of confusable phrases. Upon finishing this book, students will be able to make conversations on a wide range of topics in Chinese and fluently communicate with native Chinese speakers.  
The book is illustrated with plenty of photos matching the style of the test and is printed in full color.

Practical and Effective—The books provide genuine and practical materials and cultivate efficient learning strategies. 
Diverse Situations—The short texts and dialogues in various situations help reduce the difficulty in learning and increase exposure to a wide range of the language.

Warning: this book doesn't provide any answers so if you study by yourself like I do it's quite annoying. You have to buy the answer key separately as a pdf file.
