How do you invite people to your groups? Also, I just joined.

I don’t think you can. I’ve tried to do it in the past.

How do you change your username

Previously, we were discussing how sometimes the system will prompt you to review a whole passage set earlier than your expected interval, and how that makes it hard to create a passage set for a whole chapter (e.g., John 6 with 71 verses). I made a discovery this morning. It seems like the reason why the system is prompting you to review the whole chapter early is because one of your verse's review intervals is significantly off from the rest of the set. For example, one of my verses was at 85% while the rest in the set were at 95%.

If you do not want to review the whole chapter for that one verse, you can bypass that feature by clicking on the name of the review set and clicking Learn from the set itself. When you do this, the system does not prompt you to review every verse. Instead, it will allow you to skip through the verses until you get to the one that needs to be reviewed. This feature was my primary reason for breaking up chapters. I may have to reconsider that stance now.

All credit goes to TMG. I kept seeing Mark 1 - Complete everyday and I wondering why, and then I figured it out. The Learn option combined with test instead of read is a powerful combination. I'm so grateful to TMG for showing me that!

My typical method is to add one to two verses per day, and then I do not review those again until I get to the end of the section. Then, the next day I will cram that section 10-20 times until I do not make a mistake. The next day, I review it and again end up doing between 3-5 repetitions on it. By the third day I have it down to 1 usually. Each new section I review for 21 days in a row. I then move it to twice a week for 7 times. Then once a week for 7 times. Then twice a month for seven times. Then monthly for the rest of time until I get to 100% on that section. Then that chapter goes to read once a month from that point on.

I know that seems like a lot but really it is not. It's all about being as efficient as you can to work less. That's the heart of spaced repetition, after all. The more work you do at the beginning of a section will save you time later. By the time I get to the 5th day I'm flying through the section using the one letter method (it helps that I type fast as well). So, for example, right now I'm doing John 18, 19, and 20 every day (well, I would be if it weren't for work!). That section of 120 verses will take me usually about 20-30 minutes because I make fewer mistakes thanks to the extra work I did at the beginning. Then I spend the next bit working on older verses or cramming a new section.

To answer the other comments, I spend about 40-60 minutes per day. That is my comfort level. There are days where I do 300 reviews in a day and times where I do 2. Actually I've been slacking on here as of late due to work, but I digress. Memorizing here is not a contest. You should not read the above and feel convicted to do more. Do what God has put on your heart with the time you have available. If you add more and become burnt out, what is accomplished? Figure out what your goal is and stick with it. The important thing is consistency and efficiency, not numbers. The numbers will come with time, consistency, and efficiency.
