Miscellaneous - amount of words in tanach
Submitted by paysach krohn  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Chumash: 79847, Navi: 141414, Kesuvim: 83640. Total Tanach: 304901, so he would have to learn the entire Tanach nearly 20 times.

If he would want to do a letter for each of the 6 million, the entire Tanach is 1159705, and would still need more than 5 times.
