This type of verb isn't too bad since you retain the stem TABE-. All you have to know is how to plug in the endings.

I never memorized lists of verbs, but rather listened to how they were used and when I would want to use a verb, I would look it up to make sureit was used correctly. In that way, you can slowly add to your knowledge without hurting your brain too much. :o

In the meantime, check out our grammar section for a few primers on verb types.

This is a really nice site regarding verb conjugations. Actually, this is where I studied Japanese verb conjugations and I find it very systematic. I hope it will help you too.
