Cramming vs. SRS

You know the benefits of Spaced Repetition. So what's the deal with cramming?

While the study interface is the same, cramming is very different from your normal daily study sessions. Here are the key differences:

(Spaced Repetition)
What will I study? All the words you've learned, and new words from every List you have queued Words from a single List only
What is the priority of content I will see? 1. Weak memories
2. New words
1. Weak memories
2. New words
3. Strong memories (sorted: weakest first)
When should I use? Every day Only when required

We recommend studying every day with spaced repetition, and only cramming when you need to focus on specific knowledge immediately before needing it (for example, before a class or exam).
