So I’ve burned a couple thousand items by now and I’ve been noticing something for a while: some of the items I burn, I feel like I didn’t really know that well. Like… maybe I guessed at the reading or meaning, and got it right, but felt like I got it by luck more than I remembered.
Or maybe I did a kanji and a vocab in close proximity (or vice-versa), and only managed to burn the second because I failed the first and had to look at the answer I missed.
Or maybe some of these I feel like… if I had to burn that again three months from now, I’d most likely miss it.
I assume this is typical… but what do you folks like to do about this? Meticulously fail items that you had to guess at or know you couldn’t have gotten if you didn’t just fail a related item? Go in and unburn the items you feel like you don’t really know? Keep a list, and spend extra time studying those items outside WK? Just don’t worry about it, and use reading/dictionary lookup to help fill in the gaps organically (quantity > quality approach)? Reset back to level 1 once you hit level 60, and do it all over again to focus on the ones you’re not clear on? (An extreme idea, but I know a number of you actually do this, so.)
