Hi everyone! I’m looking for some information about the Nihongo So-Matome books. I’m taking the N4 in December and I’m pretty covered for grammar, I believe, using both Genki II and TRY N4. Vocab is seeerrrriously my weak point and I have a rocky (at best) relationship with SRS vocab decks, so I wanna try the textbook approach because textbooks work super well for me generally (I really love my grammar textbooks).
I’m looking at getting the N4 1500 Essential Vocab book (I know it’s not actually 1500 words, that’s okay) and the Nihongo So-matome JLPT N4: Kanji and Words book. Have any of you used these before? Thoughts on them? Would you say it’s worth getting the Kanji and Words book even as a level 20+ WK user? Do you think it’s worth getting both of these books together, or one over the other?
