    I really can't remember - probably somewhere between the ages of about 5 and 8?

    I voted for the age of 6-7 on the poll.

    Began to learn my time table after the age of 9. One day, I gave that up, just because, it makes no sense to plan your learning, as learning is dependent on the mood of your own. I have learnt the lessons and subjects nevertheless, but spontanously.

    I learnt them age 15 for the mental arithmetic section of GCSE maths.

    At that point I knew most of them but 6s, 7s and 8s were always a bit of an issue.

    So age 15 I had the professor playtime audio tapes to nail them well enough to make the exam easier

    I had the rest of them nailed at about 6ish.

    Is it weird to have a favourite? (I don't care if it is - 9s are the best, then 11s, then 3s, then 5s and 10s. 8s and 7s are the worst.)
