The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (日本語能力試験 ,nihongo nōryoku shiken), or JLPT, is a standardized criterion-referenced test to evaluate and certify the Japanese language proficiency of non-native speakers. It is held twice a year in East Asia and once a year in other regions. The JLPT has four levels, with Level 4 the most basic and Level 1 the most difficult. The Japan Foundation estimates that approximately 150 hours of study are necessary to pass the Level 4 exam and 900 hours of study are required to pass the Level 1 test, although the figures may be significantly higher for native English speakers.

* Level 4 - Beginner
Requires knowledge of about 100 kanji and 800 words
* Level 3 - Intermediate
Requires knowledge of about 300 kanji and 1500 words
* Level 2 - Advanced
Requires knowledge of about 1000 kanji and 6000 words
* Level 1 - Expert
Requires knowledge of about 2000 kanji and 10000 words


So who's gonna take?
I plan to take it next next year. :)

Reading manga is a great way to learn more kanji. You get involved in the story so your mind is working differently than just rote memory and besides manga almost always have furigana.
