This book is not for: Someone who is completely new to Japanese that cannot read Hiragana and Katakana, as well as having no understanding with the Japanese vocabulary, you should understand Hiragana, Katakana, language structure, and vocabulary first before picking up this book.
This book is for: The person who can read Hiragana and Katakana, don't worry there is Kanji in the study sections but thanks to furigana you will be fine, also if you are wanting to prepare for the test and have the question, what will this test look like? This book is for you also it has test questions for all the sections that will be tested and last but not least it will include a CD for the listening part.
One last thing: If you know someone who can read Japanese beyond the N5 level have them help you with the question explanation part or better yet try to understand it for better practice.
Good Luck to all that will pursue the N5 test and have fun learning Japanese.
I bought this book because Ive put thousands of hours into the language in the last decade, but like I mentioned above, I knew that the JLPT is in 110% japanese when you test for it. That means if you really want to earn the certification, and feel like youve earned it, and know that youve earned it, and didnt just barely pass....then you need to understand 110% of the real exam. From the Front Cover to the Back Cover.
I love this book because it is essentially the test in a small format so you know exactly what to expect on the real exams.
This book is not for someone who just wants all the answers without study, or wants to breeze through the book and be ready to go. Theres actually some fairly advanced grammar and japanese kanji in this book, which dont even appear in the N5 kanji list, so thats what Im saying when I said above, that you really need to have the desire to learn and be able to understand 110% of this book, or you will only be getting the minimum required to MAYBE pass the N5, if even that.
This book is not worth your time or money if you can not invest serious daily time into studying it, on top of your other misc studies/home life/work life etc. And I highly recommend knowing a good 300-400 kanji, at least 500 vocab, all the basic expressions, conversations, etc, your basic verbs and adjectives, grammar etc, to the T, before you even bother buying this book, or youll end up setting the book down after the first look through and never touch it again.
If you are really really serious about passing the N5, for more then just a "fun cool thing to do", then buy this book, otherwise keep moving, this book is not for you.
