Looking back I should have made more specific mneumonics encorporating all the radicals to remember a kanji or phrase because as I go on so many kanji are similar and its getting confusing now. I have to go back often and write new or improved mnemonics.
Someone suggested to try to complete as much vocab for each level before moving on and thats been super helpful as well.
What advice do you have for newcomers? And have you incorporated other memory techniques besides menumonics to help with memory retention?
