JLPT is the Japanese
With this site and the JLPT Study Forum I hope to give people some idea of what to expect in the exam. I have typed out past exams, translated sentences and created some basic learning materials, such as quizzes, to help students check if they're on the right track.
I set out to take my first JLPT exam in 2004 and while some information was available on the internet, I was never clear.
Importantly, I was never quite sure what was in the official list - or even whether an official list existed.
I passed level 4 in (2004) and then level 3 (2005), and started to create web pages as part of my study regime. I found out about & purchased the official Test Content Specification to make sure that everything I had was what I was supposed to know. In other words, I purchased the official lists.
I found that many "JLPT lists" available on the internet were either old or contained a lot of mistakes. So I typed them up myself and checked everything with my Test Content Specification - which is where this site comes in. It is a compendium of all my study efforts and a bit of extra stuff - just for the fun of maintaining a web site.
