So I finally installed the reorder script, mainly to change things up a bit as I was losing motivation. I’m currently on ascending level and type, and immediately noticed that it’s easier to concentrate for the duration of my review session for some reason. I also noticed I can leverage my memory of when I learnt something to help me remember it, especially in the case where there are two similar looking kanji which I often conflate. I think my strategy will be to sort by ascending when I’m planning to do a whole review, but sort by descending when I’m running a bit low on time.
Just wondering if anyone has experienced a worsening overall retention by doing it this way, or any other pitfalls I should look out for?
