Any non-Japanese take this test? How was it? I hear the curve's horrible b/c mainly japanese take it. What's worse,is that there are literally no review books anywhere to be found. Even the barron's one is out of print and was published in '95. If you guys have any suggestions i'd really appreciate it. Thx a lot.

I peeked at the test from the 22 Real SAT II's book and it looks pretty easy. It tests elementary school level kanji, vocab, and grammar. I don't remember the exact curve, but it's big enough.

I looked at the sample questions on collegeboard's website, and it looks hard to me (I just finished Japanese II), personally. I was familiar with (doesn't mean I knew them, lol) a little more than half the kanji, and it was nice that they put the questions in romaji as well as hiragana, 'cause I can read romaji a lot faster. I was familiar with almost all the grammar but only like half the vocab.

Anyway, here's a question I have. I take Japanese distance learning (sattelite tv) and they only offer it to Japanese III, and if I were to take the Japanese test w/listening, they only offer it in November. So, if I wait another year and take Japanese III (which ends in like the end of May), I won't have taken Japanese for like 5 months. I could take it this November after having been in Japanese III for 2 months, but not having learnt the whole Japanese III curicculum. What should I do?
