People who have taken JLPT 3..

Postby ハイド » Sun 09.06.2009 5:22 pm

What would you recommend studying? I study Japanese at an independent Japanese school, and my teacher says that level four would be too easy and a waste of my money. Therefore I've registered for 3. The practice sites I've been to haven't been that bad at all, but I'm still feeling like I'm taking a shot in the dark as to what I should be studying. Any recommendations from people who have taken it already? :)

This book is very useful for the grammar portion of the exam:

And if you haven't taken the test before, you may want to pick up last years test (http://www.thejapanshop.com/product.php?productid=17628) or the compilation book from 2004-2006 (http://www.thejapanshop.com/product.php?productid=17403). You may not need it, but it would be very helpful for you to get a feel for the actual test--especially if you take the test within the actual test's time limits.

Maybe this thread of the 2007 JLPT3 group will help you a bit (or confuse you terribly :mrgreen: )
I don't know which sites you have found already, but these might come in handy as well:
