I've been using this series of textbooks the last two years to study for the N3 but on both tests the vocab didn't seem to resemble what I had studied in the books at all. The first time I figured I just didn't study hard enough since I only failed by a few points on the overall score. The second time I had much better preparation but the vocab seemed even more unfamiliar and I did worse. I tried matching the vocab in the books with various guides online and they aren't matching up. The book says its designed for the new N3 but I'm wondering if I should switch to a different set of books. Does anyone have experience with this series?
