Ahead of Shedule feature

Asked by Irene May on 2011-08-28

Hi! As I have read, for the best results I should use Mnemosyne every day, and even one or two days of non-using may degrade the algorithm's performance. But you see, I will have to go for a week-long trip, and I'm not much enthusiastic about taking my laptop with me. The program has "Learn ahead of shedule" button... What is it for? Can I use it to study for 7 days ahead and then leave for my trip without laptop, knowing that even if I won't be using the program for 7 days its algorithm will still work properly when I return and get back to my studies? Or maybe I can trick the algorithm somehow by changing date on my computer? And what do the 7 days of non-use really mean, what effect will they have on the algorithm and how bad this effect is going to be? Thanks!

I'd recommend rather than learning ahead, you catch up when you get back. Mnemosyne is intelligent enough to show you the most urgent card first, and it will have less of a negative influence on your scheduling than if you learn ahead of schedule.
