I recently ordered books for N4, and I would recommend the Nihongo So Matome N4 Vocab/Kanji book (you can buy it separately, OMG Japan is the site I used to buy my N4 books). I didn't buy the other Nihongo So Matome N4 book (reading, grammar, listening) and I'm glad that they separate them.
As for Grammar and Reading, I ordered New Kanzen Master for these. I heard NKM is the best for JLPT Grammar (but they don't have N5 level, I believe). I also bought the Try! N4 for extra practice/reinforcement. The Try! books are supposedly good for listening too since it has CD audio for everything, so this could be a good choice for some listening practice. And for more listening practice, I'm just saving my money and sticking to apps and Youtube. Anyway, I hope this information helps anyone who is looking to move from N5 to N4 and doesn't know which books to get. For those looking for a solid N5 book, I don't believe this Nihongo So Matome book is really the best on its own if you're taking the JLPT test, but along with some other textbooks and apps it is a good supplement to learning, especially Vocabulary and Kanji!
I get that it's for review, and for the N5, but it just seems pretty limited. Glad I still had my Genki books.
I would suggest getting this only if you already have a strong base of understanding for japanese and just need a very quick refresher, not for test prep.
I highly recommend this for anyone just above absolute beginner. Book arrived in perfect condition.
Would not recommend this book to a beginner learning Japanese from square 1. This is good supplemental material that’s good with other textbooks like genki and other books that are specialized in other areas like a kanji book.
Some downsides to this would be there are no explanations for grammar and someone correct me if I’m wrong, not all kanji readings are present on some kanji.

Le poche spiegazioni grammaticali che prova a dare sono un po' così così....però c'è da dire che non nasce come libro di grammatica, ma già che le da...potevano farle un pochino meglio.
Ci sono parecchi vocaboli che non fanno parte del N5, e vengono poi anche richiesti negli esercizi. Questo rende un po' più snervante lo studio, ma non so dire che è un difetto, perché stimola a migliorarsi.
Sehr gut geeignet, um ein Gefühl für den Aufbau des JLPT N5 zu bekommen. Empfehlenswert.
