While I agree with your earlier point: "What were they *thinking* having people both learn and be tested on the checking notes while doing 6-8 rounds per day?," I have to correct you. On *later* course you might have been required to learn the checking notes before you attended the course. But on earlier courses (e.g., mine, Mallorca-Fiuggi '72) you had to both learn and be tested on the checking notes while doing this much meditation per day.
