Take the time to check out the FAQ and GUIDE if you haven’t already.

There’s also a lot of good stuff on the forum to help you, like:
The Ultimate Additional Japanese Resources List!
The New And Improved List Of API and Third Party Apps

I hope your Japanese learning journey goes well and that you enjoy your time with us on the forums.

There is plenty of theory behind how SRSs work and part of the beauty of spaced repetition is that the reviews come in just as your brain is starting to forget and so they snap you back into memory mode. If you’re reviewing in between, you won’t get that effect. This doesn’t mean that you’re less likely to retain the information, and it may aid recollection a little, but it’s not the most efficient way to go about memorising the information. There is a thread here from may that discusses the current science behind it ^-^

There is no need to rush reviews. The minimum possible time between levels is 6d 20hrs, so you can take those 57 reviews and split them across those 6 days, doing just 10 a day, if you like. Most people recommend 20 lessons to be a reasonable amount. I covered this on another post, so I’ll quote it here instead:

For levels 1 + 2 those periods of time are shorter, so it probably feels like you have less time now, but you’ll be having more time between levels from here on out :slight_smile:
