Recommended JLPT N3 Books

Nihongo So-matome: JLPT N3 Grammar

In my opinion, this is the best book for studying JLPT N3 grammar. This is the book I used and it helped me pass the JLPT on my first try. It covers all of the JLPT N3 Grammar in 6 weeks, with an easy to follow study schedule. There are translations in English (and other languages), but most of the book and explainations are written in Japanese.

Kanzen Master Jlpt N3 Grammar

This is my second recommded JLPT N3 grammar book., which also covers all of the grammar that you need to know to pass the JLPT n3, and includes great practice excercises. One down side though, is it's mostly in Japanese, but that will help you in the long run.
