First of all, after downloading the sheet, scroll through the tabs at the bottom to locate the JLPT level that you are studying for.  Say for example, you are studying for the JLPT N3.  Scroll to the JLPT N3 Grammar tag at the bottom, and dive right in.

You have a full list of all the JLPT N3 Grammar points (or JLPT N5, N4, etc.), a checkbox for whether you have “mastered” them or not, and an automatic calculator to keep you up to speed on where you are at in your JLPT study.  This JLPT mega study list was designed to be used alongside other learning materials – so you can double down on your Japanese learning for different JLPT levels.

If you have textbooks, you can cross reference the JLPT N3 Grammar points (or any other JLPT level) on the spreadsheet with those same Japanese grammar points in textbooks, online resources, Youtube videos, etc.

As you progress through the JLPT grammar points – update these on the list and watch your progress grow to 100%!
