Anyone taking JLPT this December?

I'll be taking N1.

JLPT's website has some free practice tests for all 5 levels.  LINK.

Any other good sites to find free study games or practice tests?

EDIT: I found a site called Memrise where you can take quizzes and post your own, in order to study vocabulary.  Some things are focused by JLPT level and others are by other categories.  It seems like a helpful way to study Japanese in a test/game-like situation.

I've taken N2 in 2010 and ever since then stopped studying .... I guess simply because I can manage my every day life here in Japan without any issues.
But I still want to take N1 in the near future!

Here's the practice tests from previous years: http://www.accessj.com/2013/06/jlpt-practice-exams-for-n1-and-n2-2009.html

Thanks for the link! That seems like a big help.

I'm mostly motivated to take the test to check my personal skill level, and force myself to study. Unfortunately my previous company would have given me a bonus for passing it while I was employed by them, but I didn't pass N1 in 2011 when I took it... really kicking myself for missing the deadline last year.

I am taking N5..
But I guess i am lacking the motivation to study. Also styding my myself is becoming tough.
I have a huge doubt..
The jlpt n5 has 800 words in vocab. It has around 103 kanjis.
The memrise app for N5 has kanjis for all the words.
So my question is Do I have to learn all the 800 kanjis for the vocab words +103 kanjis ??
Or I need to learn 800 words(prounounciation +kana) and 103 kanjis??
because I am turning mad trying to remember all the kanjis for 800 words.
Please specify clearly how many words and how many kanjis are exclusively needed for jlpt n5.
Kindly reply asap, Ill be highly obliged.

Oh no, you don't need to learn those 800 kanji!

Basically N1, which is the hardest, has about 2000 kanji, and N2 has about 1000. But everything else has much less kanji. You're taking N5, the easiest, so there is no way it would have so many kanji. I heard that N4 and 3 have several hundred, so I am positive that N5 won't have many.
