I am using various programs to study Japanese: audio CD's, Ja Sensei and TenguGo Japanese. Kanji are grouped by JLPT levels. Often kanji bleed across various levels. For example
An example word for JLPT 5:
The example also includes two characters from JLPT 4. Ive seen examples of Kanji from JLPT 2 and I think even 1 in there too!
What should I expect to see in JLPT 5? Do I need to know all meanings for a kanji and even all combinations including kanji from levels far and above my skill level? What about grammar?
