About me: 

As of 2017/11/14 :
19 year old.
Student at École Polytechnique, France.
I love to learn things.
I'm using a digital commonplace (see : How to keep a digital commonplace) with Cherrytree. Currently 670,000 characters, or 150 well packed pdf pages, but growing fast.
To review it, I include for each bit of knowledge the date of addition. Then every day, I review the following dates : D-7, D-30, D-120, D-365, D-1825, D-3650. I am grateful to Lembran Sar and his post I'd like to be able to remember every day that passes for the idea behind this way of reviewing.
A python program tells me every day which dates I have to review, then I only need to search for them in Cherrytree.
So far, reviews usually take less than 5 minutes every day.

For knowledge I prefer to review actively, I'm using Anki.

For school, I'm using the method described in my post 2 years of intensive learning : my experience with flashcards and the method of loci (basically I write questions on sheets of paper, the answers being in the courses. I review the questions in order, trying to use spaced repetition but being highly influenced by the tests schedule.)

I've been using the method of loci to memorize decks of playing cards.
