Watch Your Videos!

The weekly videos featuring Sakura and Daichi are a great resource to help you remember prior lesson material. I suggest you watch these videos a few times. (Each of them is less than 1 minute long!) Make a note of things you don't remember and look them up when you're done watching.

Reading and Writing

While there is no writing portion of the exam, you will need to know how to read and recognize all the hiragana and katakana characters. This includes combination sounds, sound shifts like Ga, Za, etc. and using the small 'tsu' for double consonants.
