Is anyone taking the jlpt n5 test this December in Ohio? I was hoping to just see if anyone has any suggestions for grammar and/or listening materials to help me study. I feel like those two categories will be my biggest weakness. I have covered Tae Kim’s site for grammar and I also have the basic Japanese grammar book by Seiichi Makino & Michio Tsutsui. Lastly I have Genki 1 with the workbook and a basic Japanese book. I also watch a lot of anime lol （＾ω＾）
All the grammar that you could possibly need to know is in Makino-sensei’s book, but it might be more efficient to find grammar points listed in other books and then use Makino-sensei’s book to deepen your understanding of a grammar point, because it’s very clear about when you can/cannot use something.
Remember to read all the example sentences.
What really helped me prepare was making the official mock tests from JLPT…
