The most important factor for Success

June 17, 2015

“The ability to delay gratification… self-discipline”

I’m not really using supermemo for many months now, but I’m not using any other incremental flashcard program either. But planning to restart supermemo use one and always. But this small quote is a must in a supermemo system.

From Multiple Choice Questions to Multiple Choice Answers

April 11, 2011

I have not posted much since a long time, but today I read some really good advice on how to deal with multiple choice answers. This is not so uncommon as we might think, every one of us have needed this type of questions while studying, how to deal with them has been a total challenge for me, and even more been able to explain in simple words what I did.

The following description is on of the best answers I have found until know:

First I create a question without worrying about possible multiple answers, like this:

Q: […] clothes are too bright or have too many bright designs
A: loud

Later Supermemo will present me the question for repetition.  Each time I answer it as designed (i.e. “loud”), I continue learning it without modification of the question. If I answer not as designed; but the answer is also correct (let say I answered “gaudy”) I give myself “Bad” mark and modify the question; adding “gaudy” in the synonym list in the question:

Q:
[…] clothes are too bright or have too many bright designs
-> gaudy
A: loud

Thus next time I see this question I will know that “gaudy” is not the designed answer and I will have to think of another one.

One might ask “what if I answered not as designed but I could not determine if my alternative answer had been also correct?”. That is another problem. I did not want to add an incorrect answer in the synonym list. Often I could not say for sure if the alternative answer had been correct; so I had to carry out a small investigation using dictionaries; internet, and advice of native speakers to determine that. It took time; but it allowed me to study language at a higher level of consciousness; so I think it was worth the time spent.

Please do not just read this extract, read the full article to understand how the author got to this conclusions.

I hope this was useful, until next time.

A need for SuperMemo

August 23, 2010

I’ve failed supermemo’s rule of daily review over the last two years, for periods lasting from 2 days up to two weeks, but since the residency training started, it had become almost two months.

How on earth should I be able to deal with the many repetitions due, and the many many more on the pending queue. First of all, my solution is not based on smart phones. I love smart phone, classic supermemo doesn’t.

I bough my self an EeePC, a simply love the time batteries last — more then 9 hours. I’m keeping my self the EeePC with me almost all the time, it surely look  weird hanging from my carrying bag all the time. At least is easily to recognize me, every body knows I’m the Dr with the netbook bag. You know what, who cares – I’ve updating my repetitions on any time available, and is working just fine, juggling residency training with my external hypocampus. It works.

Many visitor have continue visiting the blog, this is a great reason to continue my efforts to share the little experience I have on this wonderful program, and of course learn a little more from all of you, thanks for the inspiration.
