    Yes i know its really variable from person to person, and also the added factor of how much u retain of tht reading, bt jus wanna know where i stand with others...im taking the xam in july end and kinda wanna know if im fast enuff for the prep...
    I usually read about 150questions per day(10-12hrs) thoroughly..hw about u?

    And wut about the ASDA papers? as they dont have xplanations....it shud be faster....i havent started those yet...neither have i started the kaplan book...

    Also the kaplan book seems quite big to finish, is it worth reading the whole thing? n wut bout kaplan notes, are they different from the book?

    I think for me it was 50-100 cards/day on the first read. When reading for the second time I could do 200/day easy.

    its just tht i had thot i wud read a lot of things.....kaplan book and all the asda papers too along with the decks....figures tht at the current speed i wont be able to finish them off for sure..i jus have one month after im done with the decks...n thats jus the first reading, need to read atleast once more...so was wondering if its me thts goin slow or jus that i have less time..
    my next target are the asda papers...im gonna skip on the kaplan book, except for a few topics may be...really short on time :(
