Challenging. A lot of practice questions that are similar to what you will see on the test. Very reasonable price per book.

Maybe too challenging? If you were to buy every book, it could get expensive.

The Shin Kanzen Master Series (新完全マスター)is a series of textbooks that are designed to completely prepare you for levels N1 or N2 of the JLPT.  The series is challenging, written entirely in Japanese, and give ample sample questions to test your understanding.  The series has textbooks for Reading, Vocabulary, Kanji, Grammar, and Listening for both the N1 and N2 tests and go for about 1,600 Yen each.

As stated above, this series is both challenging and completely written in Japanese.  Unfortunately, I only have experience in the N1 series, but the N1 新完全マスター books were more difficult than any other practice or textbooks I had used.  The practice questions and sample tests were close to the same level as the actual N1 and gave me a better understanding of where I was in my N1 preparation.  On other 読解 drill books I was getting near perfect scores, but when I started using the 新完全マスター my scores were closer to 6/10.

The only complaint I could possibly have with the series is that it is really difficult.  The explanations are all in Japanese, and the level of Japanese they use (especially in the N1 series) seemed to be difficult for even some of my Japanese friends.  That being said, if you think the series is too difficult, then you probably are not ready for the test.

A very good series that, if you can complete, will fully prepare you for either N1 or N2.

    I can definitely vouch for the reading books in this series! The questions/text were exactly the same level of difficulty as the test, perhaps even slightly harder! If you can do the questions in these books, you will have absolutely no problem with the JLPT reading section.

    I also really love that these books are completely in Japanese. They really forced me to improve my reading skills!
