Study the questions first

Alex, from Tokyo, taking the 2 kyu in a Japanese school, pointed out an interesting approach. The theory of this approach was verified by a prominent reading professor here in Seoul yesterday
The point of the Japanese school is that the textbook (i.e., the mini essays) are actually backup references for the questions.
Your tasks, as learners, is to study the questions and, if confused, look at the textbook for clarification.
In the Japanese school, the students had a book of all possible test items to study. The instructor had a secondary list of the most popular items that had appeared on exams.
The Juku provides you with the similar list and, more frequently, a set of notes/solutions for the items with the questions. The mini essays are less relevant.
Good to know the Juku is the best bet…
