In this post I'll walk you through how many pages of a book you can memorize in a day and possibly be able to recall. With that said; the average person can memorize 50 pages per day with 100 pages being the upper limit.
Reading 100 pages a day sounds like a difficult challenge. A challenge akin to climbing Everest. But it doesn't need to be. If you love reading, if you're already reading 20 to 50 pages a day, scaling up to 100 isn't as hard as you think.
Depending on your reading speed, it should take you between two and three hours to go through 100 pages. It takes an average reader approximately 2.8 hours to read 100 pages.
Answer: the average reader takes about 2.8 hours to read 100 pages. You might take more or less time than 2.8 hours to read 100 pages, depending on your reading speed and the difficulty of your text. The average person's reading speed is around 300 words per minute (WPM).
High school or college students who need to memorize or learn the material they're reading typically go through 100 to 200 words in a minute. Anything above 400 wpm is fast reading, while a reading time of 700 wpm falls under speed reading.
But the reading part of studying is only part of the equation. You have to do a lot more. Taking notes, memorizing facts, and understanding what you read also take time. This gives you about 10 to 15 pages per hour to study.
Reading should be fun and enjoyable and each book you read should impact you and develop your perspective. By reading 50-pages a day you develop a consistent reading habit that will help you to not only finish more books but also develop your reading abilities.
Based on my personal experience,I would say, you can consider an average of at least 15 pages/hour. In the first hour, it should be around 20 pages. As every hour passes, the number of pages will start to decrease. After a break, you can again start with 20 pages/hour and the cycle goes on.
For ordinary students, memorizing one page takes one hour.
Revise a topic, then revisit it the next day, after three days, and after seven days. This is thought to be the perfect amount of time to help your brain remember information. If you prefer to do your revision online this could be the hack for you.
The Three R's of Remembering: Record, Retain, Retrieve.
What is 1247 Technique? Its a memory technique wherein you should revise whatever you have studied thrice after the 1st study. So effectively, you will study 4 times in 1-2-4-7 order.
Actors are able to memorize their lines so well because they spend more time connecting with their character rather than rotely memorizing their lines. According to the researchers, actors engage in a process called “active experiencing” when they are working on embodying a particular character.
Lack of revision and repetition
Hence, to help you remember what you studied, revising and repeating the process of reading is critical. Our brain forms memories through repetition and reinforcement, and failing to revise and repeat the learned information can lead to forgetfulness.
Average reading speed by page
The average college student can read approximately 20 pages per hour of easy fiction and non-technical material (the average textbook contains 800 words per page). For technical material, the average student can read around 11 pages per hour (149 wpm).
