Don't do all of your lessons at once, kids

It’s so hard not to… Even when I have sixty or more. I think I’m addicted…

I agree (with Leebo), 192 apprentice is no problem.

I can’t, I binge lessoned earlier and now I have none left. :frowning:

I’m sure he’s referring to his 403 “next day” reviews.

Doing all lessons at once isn’t the problem. Doing them while you still have a whole bunch of older apprentice items is. I generally don’t go over 120 apprentice items at any given time, so doing all lessons at once isn’t that big of an issue.

Even when I get there, I’ll probably still try to get it all done at once… I’m also doing Spanish, raising two kids, and working overtime. That sense of accomplishment.

maybe he was being sarcastic?

he says lessons but shows reviews … and not doing reviews can lead to problems like, more showing up faster than you are clearing them so you appear to be losing ground even as you make progress.

Note to self: Stay at current pace of 70-80 lessons at a time. Just because you can now level up every 3 days doesn’t mean you have to.

Maybe it’s because I’m only at the beginning, but… I get bored if I don’t do them all at once. I want to advance!! Is this like a noob mentality you all had once and regretted? :'D
I’ve seen many people advice “keep your apprentice low”.

It never really gets to be a problem until you get to the short lessons when you end up with a 600+ review pile staring you in the face every morning

I never make my apprentice above 100. LOL that was my strategy back before I had my epiphany. Here’s what I used to do when I binge lessoned the items

1.) BS the whole thing cuz you don’t know jack
OR
2.) use rikai kun to cheat and then from there, you actually learn it
OR
3.) Procrastinate

That’s why one year later I’m still at 13 (I also stopped for a few months)

Totally unrelated question
WHY DO PEOPLE RESET?

I remember being really bored and wanting to advance faster when I was your level. I remember being frustrated and doing nothing but staring at the screen for a ridiculous amount of time waiting for my 8 reviews to arrive.

or


instead

… or study some grammar or whatever.

Guess it depends on how good your retention is. I remember a few weeks back when I Guru’d all my radicals for one level in one review session and had the smart (~sarcasm~) idea to binge-learn the gazillion kanji WK threw at me.
Result: took me forever to learn the readings of 米 (rice), 空 (sky), and 売 (sell). (i did it tho! c: )
400 reviews seems like it would take freakin’ forever to do. Considering you have to type readings and meanings (or just meanings for radicals), plus the fact that something’s re-added to the deck whenever you get it wrong… rest in pieces, patience.

400 reviews spread out through a day isn’t that bad.

It takes about 15 minutes to do 100 reviews, and it’s unlikely all 400 would hit you in one group.
