Daf Hashovua has literally changed my life for the better! I feel like it was created just for me, as I never kept to a Gemara learning schedule nor tasted the sweetness of learning so much as I have since joining. The learning has become a part of me, and I have actually remembered what I learned, thanks to the perfect pace, well-crafted review tests, and wonderful chevra.
The Daf Hashovua program has provided my chavrusah and me a structure that allows us to set and reach goals in our learning at a pace that encourages review and in-depth learning.
I am so fortunate to have found a learning program where I feel connected to so many other similar-minded Bnei Torah, who strive to understand and remember the beauty of each daf. The steady and reasonable pace helps me with my learning for life!
Taking the tests has had a huge impact on my learning. It has pushed me to really ramp up my chazarah, and as a result I feel more connected with my learning than ever before. I find myself routinely reviewing the gemara in my head, something I have never before done to this degree, and it has enabled me to experience u'vlechtecha baderech more meaningfully than ever.
I just wanted to share with you how learning Daf-A-Week and taking the tests has really motivated me. For many years I found it hard to write down what I'd learned, and no matter how I tried I was not successful. The tests have motivated me to start writing. One night I got so into the test that I couldn't go to sleep until I finished it. I was up until 2 in the morning, something quite rare for me. Keep up the good work!
We went to Maran Rav Chaim Kanievsky [about starting Daf Hashavua] and he gave us a big bracha. He said "Al a endkin" 51 years to finish, "al a endkin," so we started!

The Daf Hashavua tests are a real mechayev. The benefit just can't be expressed in words... whoever is behind it has a big zechus
Before starting with the group I had never heard of the Gemara let alone thinking for one minute that I would be learning from it. What I have learned and listened to the last few months has not only been inspirational but has given me a new thought process in life. All very enjoyable. Thank you for the opportunity and keep learning, even if in small steps.
I am a diplomat working at the U.S. Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria... I have a daily commute for about 30 minutes each way on the Embassy's shuttle to the Embassy from our compound, which gives me a chance to go over the daf at least twice during the week. Thanks to the app, with several rebbeim's shiurim, I started learning Nach Yomi for the afternoon trips when the cycle restarted last month. Overall, I like the Daf Hashavua set up because it keeps you moving through the mesechta but not at a pace that if you miss a day you will fall behind. I like that it gives me what to talk about at the Shabbos table... the mareh mekomos on the app are helpful.

Daf-A-Week has been life-changing for me... encourages me to work hard to own the Daf. I am lucky to be associated with such an amazing program!
Here is my test for daf 5. Your program is giving me such a sipuk I cannot thank you enough. Some 2nd-grade boys came into my office and saw me taking this test. They asked me what I was doing. I told them I am taking a test. They were amazed! You also take tests you don't just give them!
