Card Deck Memorisation Times

From Memory Techniques Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a league table, of sorts (we rely on the honour of posters giving times).

Hopefully this will serve (at least) 2 purposes:

  1. It will help to spur us on to faster times by competing with other posters.
  2. It will give us an opportunity to ask for tips from those that are quicker than us.

Please post your times in the Card deck memorisation thread on the forum. and update the table below:

Guidelines

  • Use a 'standard' 52 card deck.
  • Time is for the memorisation only. Recall time is 5 minutes
  • Best times are for perfect recall 52 out of 52 correct.
  • Use the recall with errors section if you want to note times for non-perfect recall.
