Welcome to the Unofficial AP* Japanese website where you can find materials to help prepare for the AP* examination. Most of these materials can be freely found on the web individually, but we have decided to compile them (borrowed under their according licenses) to create a more easily accessible database of test preparation materials. Note that we are migrating many of the compiled information to this new domain, and content will be added periodically.
