Japanese vocabulary size

Well, I made this test:
http://www.kecl.ntt.co.jp/mtg/goitokusei/goi-test.html

And got these results:


あなたの語彙数は27000語です。
The size of your vocabulary is 27000 words.

中学生レベル: 2万~4万語。
Mid schooler level: 20000~40000 words.

Yes, yes. I like to believe in everything that says good of me.
If you know another japanese vocabulary test, please send me!

Not really sure how accurate this is (or can be). Studying Japanese for almost 3,5 years and can read normal novels, but still, this is almost certainly overly optimistic.
