Weiqi Gaoji Jieti Xunlian
Weiqi Gaoji Jieti Xunlian (Wei2 qi2 Gao1 ji2 Jie3 ti2 Xun4 lian4) (围棋高级解题训练) (Go Advanced Problem Solving Training) is a set of three Chinese language go books. The first and second volumes include a 193 problems from ranging the opening to the middle game with two problems per page presented on the image of a single go board. The third volume is comprised of 100 life and death problems with four problems per page presented on a single go board. The answers are in the back of each volume. Each answer is presented separately with accompanying Chinese text. The problems become more difficult as one proceeds through the three books. A picture of the front covers of all three volumes is available at http://www.bresler.org/Go/Photos/Gao1ji2.jpg
The books contain only Chinese, no other language whatsoever. However, learning only three Chinese ideograms (?) allows one to read the first part of the heading for each problem: Black first, or White first.

Also by the same publisher:
The problems in these three books are substantially identical to those in Graded Go Problems for Beginners Volume 4. Although some modifications have been made to the problems (often the orientation of the stones have been changed or the non-essential stones are a little different), my random (and admittedly very limited) sampling failed to find a single problem in this 3-volume series that did not come from GGPFB Vol. 4.
Similarly, the problems in the Beginner (= GGPFB Vol. 2) and Intermediate (= GGPFB Vol. 3) volumes of this series also appear to be taken directly from the Graded Go Problems for Beginners Series. I do not know if this is an authorized version of the GGPFB series or not.
