10 Tips For Faster Reading

  1. Read Only the First Sentence of the Paragraph: Often used to convey the paragraph' subject. In doing so you may miss details, especially in literature books.
  2. Skip to the Last Sentence of the Paragraph: It often wraps up the thought expressed and provides a connection to the next paragraph.
  3. Read Phrases: After skimming first and last sentences and deciding to read a paragraph, move your eyes quickly over each line and look for phrases and key words. Your mind can fill in the words in between.
  4. Ignore the Little Words: Ignore small words like it, to, a, an, and, be…
  5. Look for Key Point: if you are aware of the keywords in the subject you're studying. Focus your time on the material around those key points.
  6. Mark Key Thoughts in the Margins: Makes reviewing easier.
  7. Use All the Tools Provided: Lists, bullets and sidebars normally contain key information.
  8. Take Notes for Practice Tests: Write important information as questions alongside their page numbers so you can check your answers if necessary. These will serve as practice test.
  9. Read With Good PostureI: Good posture helps you stay awake and read longer. If reading puts you to sleep read sitting up.
  10. Practice: Try reading quickly when you are not pressured with a deadline. Over time you will get faster.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
