Anyone planning on taking one or both of these this year? How are you studying?

Hey LL,

Interesting topic. I'm replying even though I won't be applying for the test this year. I took the level 2 in 1993 and since then tried the level 1 for 2 times but don't work well in tests that take about 4 hours and force you to be on the site about 8 am. At the time of the last part of the test I could no longer concentrate and usually scored 270 when it takes 280 to pass.
Anyway, when I studied for this test I bought books for the JPLT separated for the 文字・語彙、聞き取り、文法・読解. I don't have the names now but will tell you as soon as I find them.

I finally found the books I used in 1998 for applying for the test:

日本語能力試験(1級・2級対策) スピード100 UNICOM
These books were written by 松本節子と星野恵子

Hope this helps!!

Thanks, J.C. I was going to write in Japanese, but got lazy. I have some of those books. I'm hitting the books these days!
