Guidebook vs. Workbook

Postby Kenjhee » August 29th, 2015 4:16 pm

The Book Information page of the JLPT website shows a Guidebook (New Japanese-Language Proficiency Test Guidebook: An Executive Summary and Sample Questions) and a Workbook (Japanese-Language Proficiency Test Official Practice Workbook). I ordered the workbook; is the guidebook also worth getting, or does it just repeat the information on the website?

Hi Kevinka,

Since you are asking about a product that was not created by us. And I haven't used that guidebook myself.
You will have to wait until one of our users answers to your question :D

Let us know if you have any question regarding our lessons and material.
Kind regards,
Laura

Ahh, I see. Makes sense. Well, hopefully some brave soul will venture an opinion. :wink:
