Can anyone use the speed reading
The software should be suitable for grades 1-12 and have levels for adults too.
This not only allows adults and children to use the program, but if you are not
good or above average readers, the program will be flexible enough to accommodate
We have taught to groups of students in University. When you get your reading
list at the beginning of the semester, would it not be great if you read the whole
lot on the first day, and the rest of your study is revision?
Anyone can speed read and use speed
reading software. We have had all sorts of people on our softwares in differing
countries. House-wives, students, doctors, business persons, government agencies,
actors, solicitors, IT professionals, sports people, writers, all are welcome, to
come with an open mind, and the ability to try and to play.
We have taught in-house for companies, who have had so much paperwork to get
through, that now instead of taking hours to read, is accomplished in minutes, giving
time to get on with the job.
How to read an academic book
It's fairly obvious that reading an academic text isn't like diving into a juicy
novel. For a start, sometimes it's just too hard to get a grip on the material on
a first read-through. There are different ways of attacking your software material,
however, whether you're doing an intensive analysis of just one chapter or skimming
a whole text for the cream of the information.
Reading an academic book takes concentration. It's easy to get frustrated when
you initially find a book difficult to understand at the first sitting. Reading
an academic book is not like flipping through a magazine or even a work of fiction.
Academic books take more time and effort. In some cases you may need to read a section
of an article or book a number of times.
For intensive reading, read section by section or a few pages at a time. Read
each section a few times over and make notes. If you are still finding the information
difficult to understand, find other sources on the same topic. Go back to introductory
books and then return to your original source for another try. However, do not discount
the fact that what you are reading may be poorly written. Just because it is published
does not mean it is well written. Remember this yourself in your own writing; long-winded
sentences packed with big words do not make good writing or good reading. Look around
for more clearly written pieces on the same topic by other authors.
