So, I’ve taken upon myself the challenge of N1 in 72 days. I feel very unprepared in terms of grammar and kanji, which of course will affect the reading and vocab sections as well.
For specific N1 study I have the Shinkanzen Master books (all sections), and the Dictionaries of Japanese Grammar.
Up to now I’ve just been going to Japanese class (about low N2 level, but lots of opportunity to ask N1 questions), and trying to do a couple pages in one of the books I take to work with me. Though as I’ve mentioned in many threads around the forum, I have not been very consistent in working through the books.
I would like to hear people’s methods in studying in limited time, and using multiple resources.
Also, how do you keep yourself from getting drowsy on the first page of opening your textbook?
