Descent Rates

I am curious and wanted to know the descent rates for landing. A slow descent and fast descent. Please let me know!

Hello, these rates change greatly on speed, weight, altitude etc. so ill give you about what I see on my regular basis

but regularly the decent rate for landing is 3 degrees, which is roughly -800fpm for a normal glideslope. For take-off, it is about 600 fpm pulling back, and 1200fpm when the back wheels are up.
