Snailing is great for lecturing, reading dialogue for a play or film, Shakespeare, poetry and such. Speed reading is for studying, testing and acing classes. When you are doing research and want to read three books, articles and reports instead of just one. It helps ace exams and classes. Speed reading joke. You don't need read all text.
One of the biggest problems is that people try to read everything. Most textbooks are
not designed to be read cover to cover. Itís not cheating to read selective sections
from a textbook, in fact, lecturers recommend it. Be selective about what you read.
All texts contains more then
30% of garbage. Try to understand this and you can start speed reading. Use your
imagine for reading faster. Use free flash lessons for understanding how can you
start you own speed reading way
What user say about speed reading
I am not sure that I can think much faster than I can sub vocalize.
To be honest, I often find myself rereading certain things to try and fully understand
Have any tests been able to show that comprehension does not fall off after a
certain speed of reading has been achieved? I am not talking about repeating
something verbatim, but grasping the "deeper" meaning.
I've been working with a variety of speed reading techniques for a while too
and sub vocalizing was one of my major problems. I seemed to get over it by just
pushing a bit faster than I could form the words in my head.
This did not detract too much from my comprehension and, over a period, got me
out of the habit of sub vocalizing everything. Over time I've found that I can read
extremely quickly when reading "for enjoyment". Especially fantasy novels, which
I easily finish in one sitting.
I'm also a network engineer and I find that when reading white papers or other
such materiel that are work related my speed is less than a third of my "fun-reading"
speed. I perform best where the text enables me to build up clear images, or where
the plot means that the flow of language is easy to follow (or even predict). This
is sadly rarely the case with work related material.
