Introduction

On this first day of class, you'll read a story to evaluate your present reading rate. You'll learn how many words per minute you read now, and then we'll compare that number to what percent of the reading material you're really comprehending. You'll also get an opportunity to check out the speed reading accomplishments of some of my former students. Then, you'll complete an eye-span exercise to start you on the path toward becoming a speed reader!

Reading Against Time

In this lesson, you'll practice some basic reading eye movements and learn how they're important to the speed reading process. Then, you'll take a reading rate and comprehension test. Your results will give you a baseline that you can use to chart your speed reading progress in this course, lesson-by-lesson. From there, you can set goals to increase you reading rate while maintaining a good reading comprehension.

Speed Reading Activities

By now, you might feel that the activities you're using to master your speed reading skills are becoming routine and repetitive. So today, we'll talk about how and why you should continue doing the Regulated Reading, Timed Reading, and Assignment exercises to gain increased reading rates with good reading comprehension. Finally, you'll read some stories that are formatted to help you improve your speed.

Setting Goals

Today, we'll examine the retinal image phenomena and how it relates to a speed reader's eye movements. Speed reading is a skill that's best achieved by doing repetitive practice, so we'll continue working on those exercises that are helping you to improve your speed.

Overcoming Poor Reading Habits

You'll probably find it helpful to work on lesson activities in the same comfortable and familiar surroundings. In this lesson, we'll talk about eight bad reading habits that contribute to slow reading, then we'll explore how to overcome them. Finally, we'll review some terminology that's unique to speed reading.

Sixteen Good Speed Reading Practices

In this lesson, we'll look at 16 good speed reading practices you can apply to our course exercises and any other reading you do outside of class. We're at the midpoint in the course, so this is also a good time to compare your reading rate and comprehension scores with those of the former students you read about in Lesson 1. From there, we'll set goals for you to meet in the remaining lessons.

Skimming Techniques

You'll probably be reading pretty quickly by the time you reach this lesson, but how can you make sure your comprehension scores are keeping up? Today, we'll look at skills you'll need to work on to improve your comprehension. You'll find out what keys and identified parts are unique to all stories, and knowing those will help you to improve your comprehension. You'll be glad to learn that you already know a few speed reading skills and techniques as we continue to apply them to our course activities.

Measuring Reading Rates

Today, you'll practice speed reading skills and techniques in real-world reading materials outside of class. You'll learn a method you can use to measure your speed reading rates when you're reading such materials. At this point, you'll be eager to read outside materials, not just for their content, but to further develop your speed reading skills and techniques.

Speed Reading Styles

We're now ready to analyze your personal speed reading style. You'll once again compare your speed reading rate and comprehension scores with those of former students in Lesson 1 to see how you stack up against others. We'll also compare your current scores with the scores you recorded at the beginning of the course to see how far you've come!

Vocabulary and Comprehension Skills

Today, we'll look at eight word recognition vocabulary skills that you can work into your personal speed reading style. You'll learn how context clues and literal and inferential meanings in stories influence comprehension. All are part of the English language and fit right in with speed reading.

Assessing Your Progress

Today, we'll see if we can figure out which of your behavior patterns are most useful in your own speed reading style. First and foremost, you need flexibility to focus on improving your reading speed, then you need an experimental attitude to get rid of poor reading habits. We'll study how the time you put in and the effort you expend affect your speed reading progress.

Wrapping Up

In our last lesson, we'll look at your personal speed reading accomplishments, as well as your speed reading future. Form here on out, you're in the real world of reading. But you'll go into it with a lifelong speed reading skill. You'll learn how to adjust your personal speed reading style to any materials you read, because now you are a speed reader!

Customer Reviews


When I started in chapter1, my reading speed was 165. By the time the course ended I was up to 642. While this may not seem very high for other students, it was quite an accomplishment for me, being that English is my second language. I will continue practicing and will get faster. I really liked this course, and will recommend it to my friends.

I am an avid reader. Thanks to this course I more than doubled my reading speed and increased my comprehension. I will continue to practice the skills I learned in this course. Thank you.

I enjoyed this course, but it is not over! I plan to continue to practice the techniques that have been taught.

I found this course to be extremely useful and valuable and would highly recommend it. I very much enjoyed learning and found all the information very easy to understand, informative, and useful.

I really enjoyed the course. My reading time doubled and my comprehension varied between 80 and 100 percent.

My reading rate more than doubled. I will be using the skills I learned in this class to further my reading rate. An extremely helpful course.

Thanks for a very useful course! I had my doubts just how helpful it would be since I didn't understand how comprehension could be preserved with a gain in speed. However, my doubts were unfounded...I actually more than tripled my speed and with practice improved my comprehension too. Thanks again.

This course was excellent and allowed me to drastically increase my reading rate. I have not one negative comment about this course. Everything was superb.

This course was excellent for me. I only wish I had taken this course while I was in college. However, as a professional in the health care field, the skill of speed reading will help me keep abreast of new research and literature to the level I can be proud of. Thank you so much Dr. Merrill
