Bob, while I agree that repetition is the key, it's primarily the repetition of notes on the stave and knowing what they represent. The kind of "memory" your exercise deals with is great for learning a piece for performance. But sight reading (and learning to sight read) is a different exercise. what you want to be able to do is approach different arrangements of notes, rather than the same arrangement again and again in order to improve performance.
