Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com

I have been learning kanji for a while and got this book "Kanji and Kana" the book of Japanese writing, it has all the kanji, but not in order from JLPT 4 3 2 1, it has it ordered from radicals as they call them. So yeah, I wondered what other people thought about this, it seems kinda off to me.

Why meh.

What I mean is I wouldn't use it to learn kanji from cover to cover. So I think it's a good resource but a poor...umm..study guide. (maybe that's a better term)

Yeah, the JLPT covers 2000 kanji overall (there are 2036 arent there???), but it is true to say you cant learn a kanji by copy paste. x] I know that much. :P

Study tool? Why meh?

Sounds nice.

You can't always just copy'n paste to find out what a kanji is. :p From what I know, being able to identify and look up a kanji based on the radical is quite important. After all, doesn't the JLPT cover only 2,000 kanji?

Quick thoughts,
resource -> Yay!
study tool -> meh.
