Speed Reading Techniques for Instantaneous Knowledge

There are a few simple speed reading techniques that anyone can use to increase their ability to comprehend the essence of written material in a short period of time. Here are just a few speed reading tips:

1. Geometric progression

If youíre constantly learning to raise the quantity of information you process at a time, you can increase the speed of your reading exponentially. Perhaps, when reading normally, you can see and comprehend a maximum of five words at a time. If you simple double that amount, to ten words processed in a single glance, and multiply that over the length of an entire book, the speed of your reading will surprise you.

2. Time yourself

Have you ever calculated how long you need to read a typical sentence? If you take a moment to measure your average time, you can begin to work on decreasing that total, trimming one second after another, until at last youíll be making real progress.

3. Read, read, and read!

This point should be obvious, but it bears repeating! The only way to learn how to do anything is by practicing. That goes for any physical activity, and it applies to mental skills as well. The only way to speed your reading time is by reading, reading, and reading. And read with a purpose. Constantly time and evaluate your performance. See how long it takes to read through a typical article, or hundred-page book. Paying attention to things like this will help you gauge your progress.

4. Keep plowing ahead

Many people tend to slow their reading pace by constantly wandering back to the previous sentence, reviewing it, possible many times. Obviously, becoming mired down in any one sentence can drastically cut the pace of your reading. Donít tend to focus on any one sentence; learn to appreciate instead the general thrust of what youíre reading. Follow its arguments, not its details. Use a pencil tip or bookmark to help you scan the text, and make sure itís always moving forward, at as fast a rate as possible.

5. Seek professional help

Exercises for speed reading can be used profitably by anyone, at home or work. But if youíre serious about becoming an expert reader, professional classes and services are available as well. If time is of the essence, turn to the experts to learn speed reading.

Speed reading isnít something weíre born with; itís simply a technical skill. As with any physical ability, reading is a mental faculty that can be trained, exercised, and constantly improved.
