I recently saw in a post on this site made by @Paul Anilprem, who has a title of 'Enthuware Software Support', that "Our simulator lets a user attempt the questions in Leitner mode.". And then there was a link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leitner_system.

Can someone who is familiar with Leitner and Enthuware explain, provide a sample or two of how this works inside of Enthuware?

If it matters (probably doesn't):
I'm trying to get prepared for the OCA 1Z0-808 exam and experiencing a tough time and I'm disappointed in myself.
I suspect that if I were to take the test tomorrow that I would get somewhere between 54% and 60%, which I know is not high enough to pass the exam.

Thanks @Paul Anilprem

Followup question:
If I recall correctly it is totally possible for me to create custom questions for Enthuware.
I was planning on copying the chapter and exam questions from the resources that I have and putting them into the system.
Once complete I would like to use the Leitner mode on these questions, but not on the questions provided by Enthuware.
Is it possible to do what I plan on doing?

You can do that using ETS Editor.
But I would suggest you not to go that route. you should spend your time studying and not entering questions.

Well here's the thing. If I do input those questions into the system then it would help me learn a few things I hope. I've been reading and trying to learn what is needed to pass the test, and when I took the foundation test I get a 65%. 65% is a pass, but from what I gather the rest of the tests in Enthuware are harder then the foundation test. Currently I do have the time for this but, I'm not too sure how much time I want to spend on doing this task. I know that do not wish to purchase another resource or pay for any classes so I was hoping that this help me, as such I wanted to be sure it was possible before spending any time on it.

I know that it is not good to memorize questions and in all likelihood any question that is in Enthuware will not be on the 1Z0-808 test. Yet I think that it is good to know why line 3 in question 10 causes a problem, for instance. So if I can learn and recognize these problems when I do write the test I will have a better chance at passing.

If you have to put these questions yourself into the ETS Editor, I have to agree with Paul: that's probably a waste of time and there are much better things you can do with your time. The added value is very minimal (if not zero), because you'll be very familiar with these questions as you have to add them one by one in to the ETS Editor and you'll probably be answering these questions (in Leitner mode) mostly through memorization instead of actual knowledge. If someone else would be entering these questions into the ETS Editor (e.g. wife, friend, colleague,...), it's a whole other story and might be very useful.
