I am a medicine student from Sweden that is frequently using anki for my studies, but unfortunately not in the best way possible for optimal learning. I’m starting a new course in pathology in two weeks and I received pre-made decks for the whole course from an older student at the same university. In other words, if I know every card I’m more than well prepared for the exam. In my previous courses where I’ve used anki it feels like I haven’t got a grip of the settings. Sometimes I get overloaded with review cards and sometimes they never show again so I have to do custom study sessions where I have to flip through every card…yeah I guess you understand. So now I turn to you guys for the optimal settings!
The decks contain a total of 1800 cards which is divided into smaller sections that corresponds to specific lectures (see the picture). “Vecka 1” is for example Week 1. I will approximately do 40-70 new cards each day (mon-fri), but at the same time I want to have time for reviewing cards. There will be 11 weeks from the start of the course to the exam.
Please help med with the optimal settings! Thanks!
