This is a basic but fairly comprehensive overview of the phonology of Standard Chinese (or Mandarin, as it might be better known as). This site covers consonants, vowels, syllables, tones, word stress and syllable reduction. Although most students don't need to know everything here, it certainly doesn't hurt to glance through it. Reading about pronunciation is one way of finding errors you didn't know existed!
