I used to take classes for a couple of years , quit, and studying again now. I think my level is around N4 to 50% of N3. To keep it short my questions are:
Should I plow through N5-N4 to get to N3? I read that someone did this in 1 day in another thread (will it pile up my Review queues?)
Or should I start at N3 and add some grammar from N4/5 that I’m not too familiar with (even though they seem easy) ?
Unrelated, but why do alot of people recommend textbook even though they work similarly to other stuffs online? I’ve used them for years in class and besides learning to hand write, the amount of limited content and exercises (that are troublesome to check when self studying) I don’t see the obvious benefits as to why I need to use them together.
edit* I’m leaning more towards option 1, will it be too much to handle in 1-2 weeks ?
I understand that I should find things that ‘work’ for me but if anyone was in a similar situation please share some of your advice, thank you.
