1) It may be noteworthy that the most common study pattern of daf yomi scored the lowest. An additional interesting fact in this regard is that it was also the last item to be marked. Of course, people who do daf yomi may not intent for it to serve the needs of a quick accumulation of biqi'ut but it is interesting that responders to this poll did not see it as a good method of acquiring biqi'ut.
2) While it would seem that the study of mishnayot and the study of Rambam equally led all choices, if one considers that there were actually two choices for Rambam -- one with commentary and one without -- it would seem that the study of Rambam in some way is perceived to be the best method by which to acquire beqi'ut.
3) A comment was made on one of the postings at the time that we launched this poll, that an important option was not considered -- i.e. the study of the Aruch Hashulchan. Indeed that, and a study of the Tur, may have been other options that should have been offered.
