How Do You Study For Bonuses?

Post by tksaleija »

I've been using Anki (assisted by Mike Bentley's program) for studying all sorts of stuff but I've found bonuses to be hard because 1) they're shorter so obviously less clues and b) Anki only reads the bonuses in order when it wants to, so that's an issue. In short, I'm finding that studying for bonuses to be a bit tricky. Any ideas (if this is a weird or dumb question feel free to let me know)?

the content that can appear in tossups can also appear in bonuses so there's no reason studying material for tossups shouldn't be helping you on bonuses

In high school, I found that hard parts from bonuses were often found in the harder clues for college tossups in that topic. Study college tossups, would be my advice.
