First Aid Going very slow with First Aid

Hello,
I have a question. I read first aid about twice, almost and now I started reading it again after completing u world. I am going very slow in my reading!! I want to go faster, I don't know why its taking me so long to read.
How many pages should I be reading in a day, mean really read them and not rush through them I have about a month left for my exam!

Since this is your third read, you should be able to go fast.

It is difficult to answer the exact number of pages that you should be reading, but I think a week should be sufficient to complete it.

You could probably do 50-75 pages/day. Depends on how much you have retained in your first 2 reads. This might require a good 8-10 hours but its worth it. You could finish it in one week. Its always best to skim quickly through the stuff you did yesterday so you can retain it better.

I'm still far from taking it but as I read by subject, when I'm done I review what I just read in First Aid. So my first reading takes a really long time
