  • How to use anki effectively | 2021-10-06
    What you can do is use the SIAC add-on ( This allows you to have the option to review all the new & due cards for that lecture alone without causing confusion in your main decks. It creates a custom-filtered deck for you on that lecture. This allows you to review specific lectures without having to make sub-decks or have a ton of tags for each lecture. So you can just do your normal reviews with 30 new cards a day and then nearer to the exams you can have a period of reviewing specific lectures if you still don't feel confident. Using this approach, all the new cards you answered incorrectly would stay in the filtered deck. If you do a ton of new cards per day it's going to build up and you will have to put more time into review initially. Perhaps you can consider that this might take up time you can be used to do past paper questions. If you seem to have a lot of cards on the information you know already, you can use ReMemorize add-on ( to push these further in the future so you can focus on your weak areas. The longer the time between making new cards and actually learning them, the more attrition you might have. So, things you once understood or thought you did might seem to be forgotten. I think it's best to minimize the time between making new cards & reviewing them. You can also consider whether reviewing cards the same day would minimize procrastination. Sometimes we may have new cards and never get to review them because more cards would be due the next time. Whichever approach you choose, I think once you can continue doing reviews every day and still have time to dedicate to assignments, practice questions, and past paper practice is good. If you feel as though your new cards are taking longer to get out of the learning queue you might want to do reviews for these as soon as possible after making them. You can experiment with your learning queue options to ensure you don't pile up reviews too quickly with lots of reviews daily. (eg. Starting reviews with a graduating interval of 1 day then, later on, switch to 2 days, then 3 days). This may help with the distribution of card reviews based on difficulty. (putting harder cards to have a graduation interval of 1 day and easy cards to have a graduation interval of 3 days).
