Application forms for the 2007 JLPT are now available at major bookstores. People who live in the inaka can order a copy online from Kinokuniya. The application form will set you back 500 yen and the test fee is 5,500 yen. The test will be held on Sunday December 2 and final day for applications is September 11. More details can be found on the Japan Educational Exchange and Services site and for people wanting to sit the test outside Japan the Japan Foundation has information on cities where the test will be held. If you have been living under a rock and have no idea what I am talking about you can read about the JLPT here. Sample questions and results for past years are here. This post has some hints on passing Level 1 (the hardest level, also referred to as 1kyu, ikkyu, 1Q and "that %$#?}#&! test"). For lots of free study material check out the MLC Japanese website.
