Here is a quick guide on how to add new Anki cards to your deck.

First, click on “Add” on the main menu.

Add new Anki card

Next, change the card type at the top left of the ad card screen.

Change Anki Note Type

Choose “Basic (optional reversed card)”

Choose "Basic (and optional reversed)"

In the “Front” box, put your question. Everything in this box will be displayed with the question.

In the “Back” box, put your answer. Everything in this box will be displayed after you’ve chosen to display the answer.

So what is the deal with this “optional reversed card”? If you add a “Y” to this box, you will create an additional card, which now puts the contents of the “Back” box as a question, and the contents of the “Front” box as the answer.
