In the JLPT score comparison thing here http://www.jlpt.jp/e/about/pdf/comparison02.pdf
It says 'scaled score'. Does it mean they take into account everyone's scores and then apply bell curve?
JLPT is next week and I am so nervous...
I'll post my Japanese learning journey after JLPT.
Something like that... It's not so easy to calculate...

@zazawa
You can try Kinokuniya. I believe Shin Nihongo no Kiso is based on Nihongo no Kiso. However, Nihongo no Kiso may be hard to find.
On page 496 of this thread, poster xiaogoupi says Nihongo no Kiso is out of print:

Minna no Nihongo can be a good alternative for self learning. I used it when I first started learning seriously.

Japanese Electronic Dictionary

I have just ordered the Casio XD D6500 Red electronic dictionary but suddenly, I spotted the Sharp PW-A7200-T Brown dictionary and it looks more gorgeous. Both are similarly priced. However, it seemed that the Sharp one is more gorgeous. If you have to choose only 1, which is better? Unless one has much better features than the other.

Of course the features are more impt that the colors but aesthetic is very important to me.

The Casio has always been better than the sharp. More user friendly. and ability to add on more dictionaries via purchase of additional software

Anyone wanna give a try to this question?

通常、「ある」は非情物の存在を示すときに使われ、「いる」が有情物の存在を示すときに使われる。しかし「彼には子どもがいる」を「彼には子どもがある」に置き換えられる場合がある。それはどのようなときか考えてみなさい
