SPEED READING TECHNIQUES. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Speed reading techniques let you read faster than average without losing reading comprehension by changing the way that you read. Speed Reading Techniques Improve Reading . . . . The first secret technique to speed reading istoget over your reading FEAR. What slows your reading speed is the fear of missing stuff as you go. But nobody ever said you could onlyreadit once! You will increase your reading performance by layering your reading comprehension i.e. reading it once, twice, three times super fast with less overall time. To improve reading you must get a handle on your FEAR of missing stuff as you speedread. When you feel the FEAR remember -ForgettingEverything is Al lRight. And You must Forget Everything And Remember more. It's no different from the fearful rush you felt when you first took off your bicycle training wheels or first took a car on the road. The more you do it, the better you get at it, and the less scary it is.The physiological reading speed limit so far in the Guinness Bookof Records is 25,000 words per minute with good reading comprehension. Mr. Average reads about 100-200 words per minute. There is no reason you can't aim for 1000 words a minute easy. But you have to practice to improve reading by speed reading just like you did to ride a bicycle or learn to drive a car. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ** HISTORICA5 SPEED READING TECHNIQUES ===> . . . . . . The best time honored speed reading technique is the Evelyn Wood speed reading method popularized by President Kennedy. Evelyn coined the term "speed reading". Her reading technique involves pushing your eyes through reading material faster by using your finger, hand or other marker top ull your eyes through the reading material instead of wading through it becoming lost in the details. Photo reading is the new kid on the speed reading techniques block. The signature style of this technique is using peripheral vision and unconscious perception to blaze through reading books.. . . . The WTF! Speed Reading Techniques is our own hack.. . . . More on that later.. . . . Speed Reading TechniquesThere are three primary speed reading skills that separates speed reading from average slow reading. To successfully become a speed reader you MUST master these speed reading skills. . . . . . . . Speed Reading Technique . 1> : force your eyes to move through the written page faster than it feels comfortable. This forces you to bundle packets of words into bigger chunks. Counter intuitively, speed reading actually helps you grasp the gist and concepts faster than traditional reading. Kinda likehowit's easier to skim across logs floating in water than slowly tip toeing from one to the other and sinking. . . . . . Speed Reading Techniques . 2> : shut up. Stop trying to hear the words as you read. Lab tests show that when you verbalize words in your mind, you also do it with your vocal cords - it's called subvocalization. If you sound out each word as you read you'll never get past a reading rate faster than you can talk.. . . . . . . . . . . . Speed Reading Techniques . 3> : see the action, not the words. The final step in speed reading skill mastery istosee the words on the page in your real eyes but see the action represented in your minds eye. When engrossed speed reading you kinda see the words on the page but are unaware of them, aware only of the mental movie they are creating in your head. Sort a like a directed day dream. Speed Reading Comprehension . . . .Studies on reading comprehension using speed reading systems universally show a fall in comprehension with increase in reading speed. But these studies are typically conducted right after test subjects complete a speed reading course andreada passage once. In fact, the more often and longer you practice speed reading, the better you get at it. And the better your reading comprehension becomes. Even more powerful, is that if you read some text once reallyfast, then do it again, your reading comprehension is just as good as slow reading it once but in half the time. , then do it again, your reading comprehension is just as good as slow reading it once but in half the time.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
