I tried to search for these questions but couldn't find the exact scenarios or couldn't tell if they matched.

1. I just started using Anking and after seeing the first set of cards a few times I'm set to see them in like 1.5-2 months. I'm worried that I hit easy too often and should've been hitting "good" even though I knew them well at the time? Should I trust the process or should I reset my ease?

2. I synchronized my devices (laptop, iPad and iPhone) but my iPad and iPhone have a much higher number of reviews for some reason than my laptop even when I hit the synchronize button. How do I correct this?

You should never hit "easy" unless it's something that's second nature to you, or you already knew it cold before even starting med school (e.g. "Transcription turns ____into RNA" or something like that).

I suggest you head over to youtube and search for a video titled "Guide to anki intervals and learning steps". It is about 30 minutes long but is probably the best 30 mins you will invest in med school
