However, if you've only been learning Japanese for a few weeks, maybe you ought to start off slowly. In my junior/beginner course books (we used Kimono) we learnt hiragana and katakana, as well as a few basic kanji (family, numbers, positions, days of the week). Now we're studying from Wakatta (this is an Australian book, btw). Wakatta has 175 or 185 kanji, something like that, and around 8 or 10 grammar points per chapter, in 12 chapters. It's a great book if you already know the basics of Japanese (imho).
Or you could just get any grammar book and download the kanji pdfs from this site.

They have it divided into 4 parts - Vocabulary/Grammar, and Writing/Listening. The entire book is in kanji after lesson 2 with furigana above the kanji so you can read it. They teach you hiragana lesson 1, katakana lesson 2, then 10-15 kanji every lesson after that.
You can go to http://www.genki-online.com to see some sample pages. They also have online study materials to go with the book as well.
Between the book and this site for community support I think a person can easily take and pass the grade3 JLPT with one year of study, knowing 1100 vocab words and 317 kanji.
