The Kanji or The Radical?

I am learning halfway to Japanese! //slap



Anyways, I'm still confused about learning kanji owo)v


Which is better first, to learn jouyou/kyouiku/any other necessary kanji or radical first?

I found out that I can remember kanji easily as I learn the radical first, but seeing kanji frequently can also make me remember it easily (but not on writing it manually).


Based on your experience or opinion, please answer the question.

So you're one of RTK fans? //slap XD

I know that book, but it is for sale, right...?


Anyways, thank you for the reply, Vanny-san!

As long as you don't have photographic memory, it is advantageous to learn radicals first. 

If you do that, you can read kanji that you have never seen before.
I would suggest that you check out the book "Remembering the kanji".
