Spaced repetition of leetcode problems for better problem retention which helps to be prepared at the next coding interview
Very often users solve, optimise, learn coding problems on leetcode.com. However 5 days after learning the solution they completely forget what they learnt. It has nothing to do with the users memory but the fact that the problem wasn't reviewed again to make it permanent in the memory. Users also fail coding interviews because they face the same problem in coding interviews. They had solved several problems but they were not able to retain or remember the logic clearly as the knowledge and algorithms got dusty. So here is an extension to keep that knowledge sparkling forever. Long term retention happens when we revisit those problems at regular intervals of time so that they get fixated in the memory. This idea is explained by an algorithm called Spaced Repetition which has been implemented in this extension with a fair deal of flexibility where the user can select the repetition timeframe of the problem to be reviewed and the extension will show a comprehensive list of problems to be reviewed each day. Quoting wikipedia, "Spaced repetition is an evidence-based learning technique that is usually performed with flashcards. Newly introduced and more difficult flashcards are shown more frequently while older and less difficult flashcards are shown less frequently in order to exploit the psychological spacing effect. The use of spaced repetition has been shown to increase rate of learning." If you are fairly new to problem solving, coding, interview preparation this extension is what you need to crack those coding interviews and get that dream job as it will enhance your memory and with that when asked similar questions in the interview you would be able to recollect and devise the appropriate solution quickly. Several people also ask how to leetcode properly so this also helps with staying in a rhythm of problem solving and also gives a sense of satisfaction.

- (2021-01-15) Carlos Riveros: This extension is great. Did it help you land a faang job?
- (2020-11-08) Rishabh Jain: Please explain what does "Select # of days" exactly mean, does it mean that if I select 3, it will remind me on the 3rd day and thats it?
- (2020-10-02) Conor Hynes: Outstanding, would be great if it synced with my google account, seems to only sync locally. I have a different set of questions on two different PCs with the same google account on chrome
- (2020-09-12) david h: After deadline or scheduled date, the problems are forever put into scheduled problems but don't show any date which was due.
- (2020-04-13) Sakshi Malhotra: I have been using this for 3 days and looks to be super productive. Thanks to the mastermind who made this
- (2020-04-13) anshul ghanshala: Thanks for making this. My progress is improving.
- (2020-04-11) Alex Luu: Can you make it so that I have the option to see what questions are upcoming for repeat? Also maybe custom days, specficially 1 day.
- (2020-04-11) arnav vashishth: Great app, spaced repetition really helps form long-term memory. 5/5 would recommend.
- (2020-04-11) Pranay Reddy: Sounds very useful. Looking forward to using it during next interview season.
- (2020-04-11) Rand Knutson: I really like the idea. Please make an update to be able to see all the current problems that are to be "repeated" I can't see what I have saved, and If I miss a day, I can't see the ones I missed. Thanks
- (2020-04-11) Casey Yang: Great extension to have, excellent for coding interviews
- (2020-04-10) Sidhaant Anand: My god this was the only thing missing from my lyfe. Thank you to the creator of this extension Wish I could thank him in real life He is a real champion Tbh, would have paid $500 (~400 quid) for this extension. Once again, THANK YOU TO THE DEVELOPER
- (2020-04-08) Mridul Ghanshala: I was having lot of trouble using ANKI for flashcards. Great help
- (2020-04-08) Shobit Rawat: I was looking for such a thing for very long. Its really helpful for any one doing coding interviews..:)
