I can only guess that they mean that the kanji for level 4 of the JLPT includes 1-10, 100, 1000 and 10,000 which doesn't actually make much sense because the first grade kanji include all those except for 10,000.
(edit: oops, got my statements the wrong way round)

If by Joyo you mean according to the grades, in the sequence the japanese children learn it, that is a fine way of learning Kanji IMO. I started out with the grades, and it was much fun, since there is alot of material for the individual grades. Still, I think one learns Kanji early, that are not that common, and also, I had to work on the composita by myself. In the books following the grades, the composita are really ment for native speakers, who have help from their parents. Learning the numbers is not such a big thing BTW. It is 13 Kanji of the 2'000 you may want to learn eventually.
If I were not doing the JLPT, I would probably study Kanji with Bonjinsha's Basic Kanji Books, and later Intermediate Kanji Books. They seem to have a nice balance of information, teaching how to write, and exercises.
