Out of curiosity, why do you need to memorise whole pages in a book? I can understand either memorising quotes or learning facts, but memorising an entire book word-for-word would be a challenge!

For memorisation though, repetition is key. Write it out multiple times, say it out loud, say it in funny accents, record yourself saying it and listen to it at night. Stick excerpts up in the bathroom and other places where you'll find yourself glancing at them. Sing the words to music. Different things work for different people, but a combination of some of these may be best.

To memorise a passage word-for-word, about the length of an A4 sheet, would take me a week at least, and I wouldn't remember it for that long - perhaps a few weeks. An entire textbook would take me years. On the other hand, learning basic facts and paraphrasing is much quicker. Can you clarify which you're talking about here?

Ahh I understand! Everyone's different, but personally my learning goes a little like this (it does tend to vary):
- I learn thing 'A' in lessons
- I am set homework on thing 'A' which I complete a few days later
- I recap thing 'A' a couple of weeks later
- I revisit thing 'A' for a test, along with other things that I have learnt ('B', 'C', etc), a month or so later
- I periodically revise thing 'A', doing exam questions on it, until the real exam

It depends on your memory and how confident you feel. If you don't feel you understand a topic, regularly revisit it until you do. If you're super confident, leave it for a few weeks then come back to it and see if you knew it as well as you thought you did!

1) Read one chapter
2) Write notes on what you remember
3) Go back through chapter adding new notes for whatever you forgot

Repeat that for each chapter, maybe do part 1 and 2 one day and part 3 the next. Or do all three parts on the same day if your brain can handle it (or small chapters). It wont take too long to finish the book, then test yourself. You will learn better if you don't just read, read, read...
