Looks like the answer to my question:

The audio from the second link is better that the first

    Nice. These kinds of charts typically neglect the widespread 儿 "er" sound that you'll often find modifying the ends of words. Though it is left off in dictionaries, and is said to be optional, some listeners will have a hard time understanding certain phrases without it. You'll also need to learn how to leave some syllables unstressed, in which case their tone mark is largely irrelevant, depending more on the tone of the preceding syllable. Don't focus on that though. Just spend a lot of time listening to Chinese conversations and watching Chinese TV. You'll get it.
