may i ask why you dumped LY? I'm curious because I did as well. Started making own cards from BAB but it's been a huge time sink

To be honest, I should have dumped it way earlier. I could tell when I first started it that I wasn’t going to be a fan of it, just due to the fact that there are so many repeated cards that focus on random factoids from his lessons. This became even more apparent when it came time to do reviews, as the cards become more and more random based on how often you lapse them.

TL;DR: I felt like the cards lost all sense of context and my time would be better spent doing questions —> honing in on weak areas —> reviewing entire concepts by rewatching his videos

Yeah I definitely wish I had focused more on practice questions. Practice questions are clearly the key.

My February score report says it expires Aug 28, Im pretty sure they usually expire before the new ones are released.

It's been the Friday after for every test other than Feb. I would be really surprised if it wasn't today since people are needing to apply with this score

I think that's a fair point, and the repeated cards is the biggest complaint of the deck. Thankfully, lots of people have had success with the deck so I am sure the deck is useful for some people while not very good for others.
