Top tips for RememberMore
Grow your Review total card count slowly. Start small, adding Tags rather than switching between Tags.
Pay attention to the Challenge level.
Use RememberMore to regain time - when you are on the bus or waiting in line or travelling.
Short more frequent Reviews are better than long, infrequent Reviews.
Take your time with "starred" cards.
Use the Rewards to set micro goals.
Maintain your Streak - it feels good when you invest in yourself and you will soon start to see and feel the benefits in class.
RememberMore is design to make learning difficult, but in a good way. When reviewing difficult cards, pause, think hard, look for connections between the prompt and the tags (if shown).
Completing a deck is a great achievement. Experience (and the metrics) tells us that completing the final 10-15% of cards is tough. Here is why? The more you know, the more you need to review and remember and RememberMore continues to present to you the ✅ mastered of the cards, just at longer spaced intervals.
Learners tend to be "overconfident in predicting their own learning" when new to the deck content. RememberMore may feel like "overlearning" and it is - for good reason.
