A recognized speed-reading expert presents a self-teaching course that truly makes speed reading easy to master. An opening chapter takes the reader through the mechanics of speed reading, starting with a diagnostic test to measure reading speed, then demonstrating hand motions and methods of expanding one's visual field. Subsequent chapters clarify the connection between reading mechanics and psychology, offer methods for accelerating memory power, and coach the reader in correct techniques for studying. Final chapters consider the varied approaches to speed reading different kinds of material, from fiction through advanced physical science texts and the intricate details of accounting books. The book concludes with several standardized reading tests.
Here is a user-friendly supplementary text for organic chemistry students that can also serve as a review of coursework for advanced students preparing for standardized tests.
