View topic - [Question] JLPT 5 by myself
I have a couple of questions about JLPT 5. I'm a beginner in japanese laguange (I know hiragana, katakana, basic grammar and vocabulary as well). I want to take the exam next year and I started to study with Genki I books and cds. I found many resources online to know what kanji/grammar/etc I have to study for the exam (like this http://www.tanos.co.uk/jlpt/jlpt5/) but, is this enough? I mean, I study with Genki myself and I assist to a class once a week (the class is SO slow and boring and I feel that it's not helping me because I study things that I already know). So, I don't know if I should buy another books to help me to improve (like Unicom JLPT N5 Reading Practice or similar). What should you do in my situation?, there is some book worth to buy that could help me for the exam? besides Genki.
Any advice is welcome.

If classes go too slow for you taste, my guess is N5 is doable for you.
(don't you just hate it when it all goes so slow?? but at least, you'll get a good grasp of the material!)
Also: check you PM box.....

Does anyone know any other sources to test yourself ? Like kind of Grammar tests, I know Verbs Quiz, and I have a Vocabulary Quiz on my phone....
And also have found a good Particle tests, but no grammar, like put the verb into te form and etc!
Thanx in advance =)))

Hi! I am new here.
I agree with Philip that you can skip N5 altogether and take a stab at N4. I hope you did well
