Q&A for Anki Like a Pro
"How do I choose from all the courses at LeanAnki School?"
As you may already know, we already have Simple Study System, Better Solving with Anki, and now, Anki Like a Pro. Let me clarify each:
Anki Like a Pro — for serious learners who want to use Anki (or start using Anki) the most effective and efficient way possible for remembering what they learn
- Get started the right way
- Create effective flashcards in seconds (warning: it's a rather hard skill)
- Enjoy your reviews
Simple Study System — for university students who want to study more efficiently overall
- eliminate overwhelm, know exactly where to start studying, be more in control of your schedule
- understand deeply, and always have an answer even when the question is from a different angle
- remember what you learn — SSS uses Anki, but it's only 1/3 of the overall system...because studying is more than just retrieval!
Better Solving with Anki — it's for students who are tired of endlessly doing practice problems yet end up getting poor grades
- Practice effectively using purposeful practice workflow
- Avoid careless mistakes by developing fluency
- Submit your paper early while being sure of your answers
- You can get it for $29 when you enroll in SSS
"Who is Anki Like a Pro for and NOT for?"
The answer is simple:
I made it for people who believe in keeping things simple and ACTUALLY becoming a productive learner.
More specifically, my promise is that you’ll have the skills to remember any material you learn because the course is based on general principles of cognitive psychology:
- Levels of processing
- Encoding specificity principle
- Elaborative encoding
- Cue overload principle
…which means it works for any form of declarative knowledge.
So long as the idea can be expressed in words, I promise you’ll be able to remember it — as long as you do the work.
You can say that it’s also for people who want to start things the right way. Do things right the first time.
People like us.
In contrast, Anki Like a Pro is NOT for people who like pretending to be productive by installing tons and tons of miscellaneous add-ons…
…or learning tons of other features but forget to actually learn the damn thing.
I like simplicity more than anything else. I don’t want to sacrifice even a bit of sanity to track all of those hacks and minuscule optimizations in my head.
So, if you like focusing on minutiae, I’m not your guy.
"Why join? Isn’t this all available online for free?"
Yes, everything is available for free especially if you’re resourceful enough…but remember that the goal is not more information, but the right information.
With all the conflicting information online, and the fact that NO ONE tells you which is truly worth focusing on, which next steps you should take…confusion becomes the most likely outcome.
I’ve spent thousands of dollars over the years on online courses and I can tell you — without a shadow of doubt — that coherence and knowing where to focus on EVERY STEP OF THE WAY made a large difference to the clarity and speed of implementation.
I wouldn’t have made an impact to thousands of people around the world if I had just continued my endless consumption of videos.
"What if I join your course and decide it’s not right for me?"
You can email me within 30 days and I’ll send you a refund. :) I don't want you to risk anything here.
I treat you the way I want to be treated when I join an online course — if you decide it's not for you, you get your money back in full.
(I don't even charge for the credit card processing fees.)
BTW, did you have other questions?
You can email me at [email protected] with your question and I'll respond as soon as I can. :)
