as someone who just recovered from missing about 8 months of WK, came back to over 1700 reviews, I kind of agree. It was EXTREMELY disheartening to have all those reviews, and even more disheartening when i would do 1-200 reviews a day only to have 150-200 reviews added in the middle of the night. It sucked, in the worst way. and what made it worse, is that of course i forgot all the material, to where my apprentice count was 320+ when i did finally get it under control.
But i needed all of those reviews, and the ones that popped up at me overnight too. Because i didn’t know the material. It was not fun, but now that it’s all over and my apprentice count is more normal (56) I know the words, almost all of them at a very high accuracy rate. If i would have put it on vacation mode and not been put through that hell, then i wouldn’t have been forced to really learn the material in order to catch up. I would have just been pushing through reviews like i did in the past and not really taking the time to learn them.
At the end of the day, how it worked out is the best thing that could’ve happened. Now i know what i’m doing, know the material, and am in full command of the program. and by the time i start doing lessons again i’ll own the material that i fell behind on. I learned a lot about the effort that needs to be put into this program, I wouldn’t trade that.
