Anki decks by LW users
Added February 2014: As I no longer have time to keep both posts updated, all further updates will be made to the version of this post hosted on my personal blog.
In a recent post, Qiaochu Yuan noted that “various mnemonic techniques like memory palaces, along with spaced repetition, seem to more or less solve the problem of memorization.” The list below is an attempt to compile all existing Anki decks created by Less Wrong users, in the hope that they will be of help to others in memorizing the corresponding material. (Anki is arguably the most popular spaced repetition software.) If you know of a deck not included here, please mention it in the comments section and I’ll add it to the list. Thanks!
