Researcher Gary Klein has done a lot of research that suggests how important deeply engrained (memorized) knowledge is important for making life-or-death decisions: http://www.fastcompany.com/online/38/klein.html From the article: "We sometimes think that experts are weighed down by information, by facts, by memories -- that they make decisions slowly because they must search through so much data. But in fact, we've got it backward. The accumulation of experience does not weigh people down -- it lightens them up. It makes them fast."

My name is Edmund Marco and it's a pleasure to sign your guest book. I work for an advertising agency in London. Our agency represents direct marketing companies that are involved in the marketing of products as seen on TV in England. Most of the infomercial products come from the U.S. but then again we export our talents as well. My brother has appeared in infomercials in the U.S. advertising various products. I think it's hilarious that English people respond so well to American products while Americans tend to respond well to sales people who have an English accent!

I'd like to see more SuperMemo collections made available, especially in the humanities areas (esp. literature). A webpage listing the pros and cons of supermemo quotes a statistic that 60% of supermemo users that persist for more than two months are left-brained and male (is this true?). Perhaps this explains the lack of materials in the humanities area. Please encourage more contributors to Supermemo collections by raising royalties of 33%. (Really, they deserve for writing it! I'm sure the costs of collecting payment or online delivery do not quite justify collecting 67% of royalties by you).
Those who persist with SuperMemo are simply a strongly willed lot. The females are in minority from the onset and no statistic shows they are less persistent. There is no word about left-right brain division at supermemo.com. Perhaps somebody else wrote it elsewhere. Humanities are in minority because most users are students of sciences or engineers

Super memo is the best. You can never forget most of your information if you are using supermemo consistently. IHMO, every English word is too weak in order to fulfill its credibility and strength of functioning.

2) Are you planning to add the very nice new intuitive interface of Windows« XP?

I am a medical student and I like to use supermemo to study for exams - we spend a lot of idle time in the hospital waiting for imaging studies or other tests to be completed, waiting for pages to be returned etc. I have Supermemo on my palm pilot, so all my study notes are right there in my pocket, at the hospital, waiting for my car to be fixed, waiting in line. Whoever says supermemo is useless has never been to medical school and had to be tested on huge amounts of dense material on a regular basis. It has been a big help to me. My only request for improvement would be that the drill info and the content of the elements would automatically update between my palm and my pc Supermemo. This would be a big improvement in the product. Thanks, Melissa Phillips

I'have just bought the SuperMemo 2000. I bought the Advanced English 97 in 1.998 and because I had felt in love with the 7th. Version. I have to say that I prefer the little 7th version because the SuperMemo 8.0 has too much options, buttons, controls, etc. and I need to concentrated much more in the interface than in my Learning material. I hope that the new SM2000 had solved this problem. Thank you very much for your Software. It's worth buying it. Thanks !

I love supermemo. As a physician- i create rather complex flashcards for memorization on my palmpilot. there is one extra feature i would love to see on the desktop conversion software for the palm. My flashcard answers are complex- using multiple lines of text. However, with the tab-delimited database format, I cannot enter multiple lines into any of the fields (i.e. i can't type "enter" or "return" in a field to start a new line.) If the desktop Convertor could convert RTF files or such, this could be bypassed. Hope this can be implemented, love the software E.E. Lee, MD

What about memorizing very complex formulas or foreign language characters. The 20 rules page did not include those things. You should use mnemonic techniques for that. Use SuperMemo to review mnemonically imprinted memories. See: FAQ

I am so happy to see software like this being written! The features in SuperMemo are so thorough that I find pleasure in sitting down and using SM! I especially enjoy being able to use a single image as a template for a collection. Much support from here, thank you thank you thank you and I hope you continue to enhance SM (particularly in the self-rating department, it gets tedious sometimes). Thanks and good luck.

Can this be used in Alzheimer's? Could you reverse the damage?
Reversing damage is unlikely, but some improvement in retention can be expected. Robin P. Clarke hypothesizes that the opposite is true: overloading memories can lead to senile dementia

A note about SuperMemo for Linux was published on this site in 1987, then again few completely different notes in the following years. Commercial version, research version, academic version, freeware, GNU and what not Now again a note about Kylix: perhaps, maybe, if, unless, hopefully, likely, probably, ... bla bla SuperMemo is the last application I keep Windows. for At least you could stop making false hopes!

The best part of the program is the ctr a. I love the idea but would like to expand my use of it but find I am frustrated from doing even the simplest tasks. I saved the window settings and wanted to apply them to the whole collection. After 15 minutes of searching I was able to wipe out my collection, but I did get teh window settings I wanted. The bold doesn't work on individual words not does the underline. I will stick with the program but find it's use very very frustrating.
Please check "Step by step". This is probably the best way to overcome complexity at the moment (including difference between plain text and rich text components needed to handle text formatting)

I just passed my last exam (4 total) for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer credential! Just wanted to pass on that using SM98 is a great way to prepare. I used it for three of the exams and studied for all three at the same time. I used mind maps to prepare for the first one but find that I never go back to review. But with SM the things I studied won't fade away!

I still have to extract the program at home. I already have tested the version 7. Cool. The interface is too Windows. It could have been cooler if you make the objects in the interface more like you are in a classroom. I want to know the details of the statistical model.

Why is Supermemo 8.0 so sloooooow. I have upgraded from 7.3 version but find update to slow and still most of the time use the old program. In my opinion there is too many "decorations" which slow down the speed of the program. Apart from the speed the software is of quite high quality.
Try SuperMemo 98!!!
