-The fact that it is all in Romaji, meaning that it's only useful for listening and speaking, not for reading or writing, as you could do the entire beginners course and not be able to read a menu
-Some answers are at the back of the book for exercises, others do not have answers, so it's hard for me to know if my answers are right or wrong
-There are exercises that I don't understand how to complete and there doesn't seem to be any explanation of how to complete them, such as Week 2, Day 4, Exercise 1, which makes it really hard for me to continue to more complex sentences
I would suggest getting the みんなの日本語 books. The workbook is all in Japanese, and the guidebook has great English explanations. This way it is challenging and allows you to get good practice. These books cover many things in the JET Course books. For the tests, you can convert the words into hiragana for practice and then try to do the tests that way. The all-over-the-place organization and romaji in those books drove me nuts and made them a waste of time to study. The みんなの日本語 books are quite well laid out and come pretty highly suggested. If you look up the grammar point in the JET Course in the みんなの日本語 books and do that instead, I think you would get more out of your study time. The books come fairly cheap too. I suggest getting both level I and II as there might be some things not covered from the JET Course in the first book (such as ~ んです). The kanji book that comes with the JET Course is alright for practice, but you can also get a lot of supplementary books, or better yet, get worksheets from the internet or play kanji games online.
Thanks! I'll seek those books out.
