So we currently have (at least!) three active N4 threads in General discussion, but hardly anybody ever makes N4 or N5 threads on this forum (the last thread with N4 in the title was from 2013).
Anyone planning on taking the N4 or N5 this year? Not me, I've passed the N1.

I want to test my japanese with jlpt but i was wondering what level i should aim for my first try.
I've done Rtk1, genki1 and 1500 vocabs from core10k till now.
Maybe i will start with N4. Who knows
I think I might take N4 this year. Just finished Genki I and reasonably sure I could do Genki II by the end of July.
I need to reinvest time in RTK, but right now I'm enamored by my ability to browse through my favorites. Love going through アイシールド21 (GOAT sports manga) and I just got my copy of 逆転裁判4 yesterday ($10!) which I played until midnight =_=
I can't say I truly understand a lot, but I am extremely surprised at how much I do get. Helps that I'm very familiar with the material, and I have a lot of patience for reading things I'm a fan of. Going to be using both for sentance mining. Since one of my ultimate goals is to play 大逆転裁判, mining The 4th game will be really helpful .
I see N4 as just a fun opportunity. I'll probably legit study for it in October/November but for now I'm just going to enjoy learning. My goal is to get through a significant portion of Tobira by the end of the year.
