Etymologies and mneumonics can help a lot. As long as you can keep from getting one confused with the other. What seems to work best for you, ReikoZ?

BTW, the 'Z' on the end of my SN stands for 'Zwei'. What's yours for?

3.まいにち八時「に」おきます。ごぜん一時「」「」ねます

My guess would be 午前(ごぜん)一時には寝(ね)ます。

4.かばん「」中「の」かさ「が」あります。

かばんの中に傘(かさ)があります。

せんせい「は」うち「が」います。

I'd change が to に.

4.しゅうまつはたいてなん時ごろおきますか。
十一時にごろおきます。

十一時ごろに起きます。
ごろ should precede any particles.

For books, I recommend Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters by Kenneth Henshall. The book takes you through each character in the order the Japanese learn them, gives you examples for each, gives a very complete etymology, all the readings and a some vocab for each. The vocab given is not always the most useful, but that's where the The Kanji Learner's Dictionary. These two books in tandem should work fairly well.

There's also Remembering the Kanji by James Heisig. I went nuts over this book when I first found it, but then I got to kanji #1200 in the first book (you need to finish the first two books in the series for anything you learn to be of any use to you) when I wanted to rip my hair out. His method is just plain boring. And completely without context. It seems to have worked for a number of people though. I guess it just depends on how your mind is geared. Someday I may finish them, just so I can say I've done it.

As far as denchi jisho go, I own a Sharp and it's treated me well. Thought between ALC and Breen, it's worthless when I'm anywhere near a computer, as though to resources combined are the best vocab dictionary I've seen. In Japan it's invaluable because it's portable. If I ever have a conversation in America with a native speaker, I suppose it would be useful then too. I only have exprience with my one Sharp jisho though, so I can't give you much in the way of comparison.

Hope this helps.
