Looking for optimal "anki settings:" Feed Back
In 8 days, I will take a (5)hour multiple choice exam.
Testable on 7+ (Subject Categories) unequally weighted.

Currently have a Anki Deck Cnt of 228 (116 -Basic 112 -Cloze)
and growing. In all reality my Deck count should be
(2x - 4x)that size as I am realizing Cloze Deletion format has best beginner benefits.

After building up Deck to final size.
should I select"Reschedule"..the entire
Deck? What interval(s) etc,.?
anyway "to automate"?

    Ok - so you need to have from about 500 to 1000 cards (4x about 250) mastered in 8 days?

    My first bit of advice you won't be able to take at this moment - you should have started this a lot earlier! I certainly hope this isn't all new material for you....

    I'd be very choosy about what material you are adding to Anki at this stage - only things you don't know well at all. I would probably use the default settings, but increase the number of new cards per day - probably to 200 to 300 so that you will at least get to see all the cards a couple of times before your test... this is going to give you a LOT of cards to review quickly, so I wouldn't normally advise that....

    I am real new to Anki 30 - 45 days.
    I have been studying the "course content"
    for about the last 6 months, just looking for some
    brain jamming tweeking of Anki settings .. that
    I have not learned yet ....
    After some thought Im thinking the Custom Study Deck
    will give me the tempory flexibility to modify this deck
    on an asis basis.... in this case as is is 8 days.

    It's possible with determination and a bit of luck.
