Hello there! I’m a relatively new WaniKani user and there are some things I’m confused about.
Leveling Speed: I understand that this is dependant upon the individual and their needs. However, is there an effective/ineffective pace i.e. If it takes X amount of time to level then it’s not worth the time, or as long as you are learning then the time in which it takes you to level-up is insignificant.
Scripts: I have heard from many users that certain scripts are almost a necessity, specifically Wanikani Timeline. However, I am uncertain as to whether or not I should use it i.e. would it be classed as cheating due to your ability to forsee exactly what items will appear in your review pile, meaning you can study before hand, whereas when it appears “naturally” you must recall it from memory.
Apprentice Item Count: What is the maximum Apprentice item count you should have as to not become overwhelmed i.e. Should you do lessons when available regardless of Apprentice item count, or call a stop to your lessons once your Apprentice item count reachs X number. I say this as sometimes I feel I’m becoming overwhelmed by the amount of reviews I have, should I just continue doing lessons and allow these apprentice items to pile a top one another until I eventually Guru them or should I only allow a set number of Apprentice items to exist at one given time.
I apologise if any of these questions have been answered before hand, these are just a few things that I’m unsure of regarding my learning experience here on WaniKani. Thanks for taking the time to read this, any help is greatly appreciated.
