ondraonway I am one of those who hate to repeat the mistakes but I found out that this is constantly happening to me. I listen the lesson, read some book but forget most as time goes on. I am still strugling to find the efficient way how to record, organize and repeat ideas which I read/listen. I am wondering how others are dealing with this problem.

Guo Juan First of all I would like to thank you very much for your support!
I understand this problem, you are not the only one who is suffering from it. We are busy building a new system, called 'Training system', I hope that will help students to study our lectures more efficiently. It will take a while before we can put it into use, because there are much work to do. Our webmaster is working on it at the moment. Meanwhile I think a good way is to make your own sgf file when you find something really I like and you can use in your games, write little comments down so you can remember much better.

ondraonway That would be great, on Ipad I use EasyGo for tsume go training and it uses spaced repetition study methodology (that is quite sophisticated approach) but whatever system based on question, answer for "typical mistakes", "middle game joseki" etc would be appreciated. At this moment I am doing sgf for lessons with comments copying what is said in lecture like " interesting tesuji", wrong contiunation etc. It takes quite lot of time but where the value is that after month I could go throught it, refresh ideas and skim through variations withing couple of minutes.

Guo Juan Yes, we are specifically developing a spaced repetition system. Also, several people are already generating the problems to go with the lectures. The programmer is working on the software side. Hopefully we will have it soon.

You are going great! I did like this when I was in the Go school. The josekis and shapes I studied and made notes back then I still remember today. It seems spending a lot of time, but I think it really worth it.

Buri Greetings,
ondraonway. I do the same as you. I make endless numbers of files of single branches and keep them within one folder. I keep the file limited to just a main branch and a few variations as that seems to make reviewing easier. Then I write down only very slightly shortened version of anything Guo says because it is all important ;) By the end of the lesson one has a shortened, written version of the lesson in a folder. This makes it easy to carry on with new lesson in a series of lectures while simultaneously reviewing the beginning. The trick is to use your files for review because the written version is much shorter than the spoken. This leaves enough time to work on the current lesson and make files for that which is very time consuming. I dont bother naming each file differently because if one is really important and I label it as such i neglect other files. I note that it is important inside the file itself.
Keeping track of review for me is best done with a daily dairy independent of the computer but i have no doubt others have some kind of computer system worked out.
