Well, when you learn the kanji for the JLPT, you learn both the ON and KUN readings. Don't you?
I have never taken the test though, but I'm pretty sure you're going to meet both ON and KUN in the test.
But when you learn kanji, don't only learn KUN and then jump back later to learn ON, that would only make it hard for yourself. Learn both when you are working on a kanji.
Good luck with your stidies.

Rich is right though, josh. The test doesn't ask you "What is the ON-yomi for XX kanji?" It will give you a word, most likely a compound-kanji word (like the one in rich's example) and you have to chose the correct reading. So if you don't know that the ON-yomi for 来 is "RAI" then you could possiably get it wrong. Zeo gave good advice--learn ON and KUN-yomi when you learn a new kanji. Learn everything about the new kanji when you study it! Don't just focus on one part (ie, reading or writing it or whatever).
