Wow....I feel extremely slow. Though I tend to study my failed cards right when I fail them, so that adds time. I also sit there thinking for a while if I don't know the card immediately. I should probably just fail the card if it takes me longer than 10 seconds. That's for kanji.
On really bad days I average about 25 sec/kanji. On good days I can do 4-6 per minute.
It also doesn't help that I haven't reviewed in a long time, so I'm rusty!
How are you this fast? I can get through 30 RTK cards in 10 minutes, so like 3 a minute!
Because the vocabulary cards are easy to him I suppose.
I go through about 20-30 a minute I suppose. I have a big vocabulary deck which I don't really need most of as the older cards are so familiar (as they would be to a native), so I skim through a lot of words.
The only reason I have such a large deck is because it'd be too hard to separate out the minority of cards that I should keep reviewing from the ones that I could never forget.
If I'm concentrating hard and listening to music I can do RTK cards about 60 in 10 minutes. If it's the weekend and I'm reviewing while watching TV then that gets basically cut in half. It's about the same pace for my KanKen cards.
Vocab cards go a bit faster at about 80-100 per 10 minutes depending on the level of material. This is why I'm not so keen on deleting cards. The easy cards take so little time and I see them so infrequently that it's pointless to delete them. I can spare 1 second every 3 years reading 一人.
Sometimes I write my RtK reps out by hand, other times I just write them in my palm with a finger. When writing them out by hand I probably do about 25 per 10 minutes, when I am writing them in my palm the pace is usually slightly faster at about 35 per 10 minutes.
