Yeah - thanks. Good luck to you too! I'm trying for N5 - just finally got around to doing an entire past paper, and very glad I did! Some bits only make sense after a bit of pondering.
For example, in the listening section I was completely thrown until I realised the first dialog they played was for the Example question! I was going "What's this got to do with this picture? Help!"
Also, I've only just understood the format of the grammar questions with the four three blanks and one star. First time round I didn't realise that all four of the answers go somewhere in the four blanks. Call me dense if you like, but maybe in the last-minute panic my brain is a little slow.
Anyway, as you say - good luck everyone!
And jPod: How about a new N5 prep course?
