Poor material for incremental reading?
Many times I don’t understand why there aren’t two versions of SuperMemo 2006, like one with “incremental reading” (plus some enhancements), and the other plain simple SRS with priority queue (this is a must in order to handle information overload). Perhaps many would prefer to never even try to use incremental reading and just process everything related in a SRS from ready made items. Next some info about the subject, from the official SuperMemo site:
Which kind of texts make an inherently poor material for Incremental
- Descriptions of scientific experiments
- mathematical derivations
- programming examples in source code
- case studies, etc.
What should you do with text that make an inherently poor material for incremental reading?
In such cases, use a traditional thorough analysis methods, summarize results of your analysis, and use SuperMemo only to keep track of such
