With the first batch of Amazon.co.jp books arriving from Japan, I now have plenty of material to be getting on with. Here we have a couple of 2級 books for one of my friends and a couple of 1級 books for me.

First impressions of the orange reading book from the Master series is that it looks well structured, building you up to the harder and longer passages.

The pink Unicom book for grammar & words for 1・2級 looks less useful considering the overlap with 2級 grammar which I have in another book, but I won’t rule it out until I give it a fair go.

The real problem is now time management. With now less than two months until the test day I think my preparations are even further behind than with 2級 last year.
