Naruto : v. 5 Paperback
Illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto
Part of the Naruto series
Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief, and sealed within him, a strange, formidable power.
His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure!
In the course of their training, student ninjas Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke have fought deadly assassins, learned incredible feats of magic and martial arts, and danced along the brink of death.
Now they're facing the most terrifying challenge of all: exams.
The three ninjas-in-training have signed up for the Journeyman Ninja Selection Exams, which they must pass if they ever want to advance to the rank of full-fledged shinobi.
They learn too late how grueling and dangerous the exams are.
If the tests of skill, stealth, and battle prowess don't kill them, their fellow junior ninja will. And, since the three pass or fail as a group, they're only as strong as their weakest link...Naruto!

Review by TheoClarke
Our trio of young heroes face their first major formal test. This is a particularly satisfying episode as we learn more about how they cope with stress and learn more of their psychology.
Review by Kassilem
This volume I sort of enjoyed. I thought I wouldn't since there wasn't any action involved in taking an examination. I think it had to do with the development of each character. Everything that has happened so far, all adds up to this, has made them who they are that this point. Or something like that. :) Hope the next book, and second part of the exam is just as good.
