Radicals: the best approach to kanji, no joke

Kanji-by-meat-cleaver - what EVERYONE studying kanji should know. (In which I have Strong Opinions about things that most people don't care about, like the importance of radicals in kanji learning.)

Kanji cards: examples - I developed this system for putting together study material for post-JLPT2 kanji, but I realize that most people learning Japanese probably aren't that far along, so this is to illustrate the kanji-by-meat-cleaver approach with easier stuff.

JLPT-1 cards - for some reason I thought that by the time I knew a thousand kanji they'd start running out of new ones. Nope. I have, however, run into a dearth of study materials, I guess because nobody actually expects Japanese students to get this far. So I made my own, and compiled flashcard sets for both kanji reading/meaning and important vocabulary. The program needed to use them is Mnemosyne, which is small and free and gets the job done.
1 to 20 - ( Kanji readings ) With a short explanation of how I picked the order, and FOUR MAJOR kanji that ought to be taught in Japanese 101.

21 to 40 - ( Kanji reading cards )

41 to 60 - ( Kanji reading cards )

61 to 80 - ( Kanji reading cards )

81- 100 - ( Kanji reading cards )

1 to 100, cumulative - ( Kanji reading cards )

And since I started this, White Rabbit Press actually did come out with a set of cards for JLPT1. It suffers from 1) a slightly shoddier editing job than the earlier sets, 2) some glaring omissions of both vocabulary and possible readings (for example, the card for 宜 doesn't include よろしく, HELLO), and 3) they've removed what I thought was the most valuable feature of the cards, which was pointing out its component radicals and is only WHAT THIS PAGE IS ALL ABOUT.
