Short-term Studying

Boxes

The method of short-term studying uses the principle of a card index box.

This card index box per default contains the boxes:

BoxesNumber
Start1
Right4
Wrong3

However, you can create up to 9 boxes also of the type Right and Wrong.

If you increase the number of Wrong boxes, the more often you must repeat the cards (vocabulary), which you can remember only with difficulties. You repeat the other cards according to the number of Right boxes.

This option allows you to adjust your learning time.

Long-term Studying

Difficult words

After several wrong answers, a question&answer is considered difficult. These questions&answers can be practiced several times a day for easy memorizing without changing the long-term studying repetition cycle. By default, a question&answer is determined to be difficult if three incorrect answers occur consecutively. You can set the number of incorrect answers between two and nine.

Consideration of Short-term Studying

Short-term studying is evaluated to optimize the number of questions&answers during long-term studying.
