I have bought the same book, and am also searching for those audio tracks!
Thank you for your posts! I am sorry for the inconvenience.
You can find the cheat sheet here: Japanese For Dummies Cheat Sheet - dummies
The page has continuous scroll and you can access all of the articles related to the title.
Which page of the book refers to audio tracks?
Have a great day!
Chrys - The cheat sheet is useful, however NOT what I’m looking for.
The book makes many references to the audio tracks, including:
Page 18, Page 19,
. . . and so on, throughout the volume.
This feature was the primary reason I chose this book, over the few dozen others on the shelf at Barnes & Noble.
I am working on locating those resources for the 3rd edition.
In the meantime, please see if these 2nd edition resources can be helpful while we wait for the editorial team to reply:
Have a good weekend!
Chrys - With some assistance from a friend, I was able to download the enormous zip file to which you provided a link, and have spent some time with it.
That zip file contains 38 audio tracks, the first of which describes the set as “the CD” for the “2nd Edition” of the book.
I have spent some time to sort though those audio tracks to find corresponding content in the 3rd Ed Book. My ‘unofficial’ results are attached. Perhaps this will be of some use getting the tracks re-sorted, and placed at the web URL to which the book directs us.
Well, it's been a few more months since your last response. I'm the new guy on the block and I am confronted with the same question. Any news on your search for that missing webpage? Like Doris, these online support files for Japanese prononciation are one of the main reason I chose your book. Please fix.
Ah! I found the error. Some of the places in the book, like page 18 (where you would first want to access the audio files if you read the book in sequence like I am doing) have a typo in the URL and say: www.dummies.com/go/japanese. That's a dead URL. The correct one appears, for example, on pages 5 and 19: www.dummies.com/go/japanesefd. That goes to a webpage titled "japanese-for-dummies-3rd-edition-resource-center", which includes 38 audio tracks and links to other resources. Note that the very first track starts with "Welcome to the Japanese for Dummies SECOND Edition audio program, but it seems to follow the tables on pares 18-20 of my 3rd edition.
