How to Read Fast, Check out the hacks on how to read fast.

  • Whether you read a blog post, scan files for work, or browse through a book, you most likely do some type of reading every day.

    But performing through dense passages of text can be time-consuming, mentally exhausting, and hard on your eyes. If you need to read faster while maintaining reading comprehension, check out these seven tips.

    1. PREVIEW THE TEXT.
    To preview a text, scan it from the start to the end, paying special attention to headings, subheadings, anything in bold or large font, and bullet points. To get a big-picture understanding, skim the introductory and concluding paragraphs.

    2. PLAN YOUR ATTACK.
    Strategically surrounding a text will make a big difference in how efficiently you can digest the material. First, think about your goals. What do you want to learn by reading the material?

    3. BE MINDFUL.
    Reading quickly with good understanding requires focus and concentration.
    Minimize outside noise, distractions, and interruptions, and be mindful when your thoughts wander as you read.

    4. DON’T READ EVERY WORD.
    To improve your reading speed, pay attention to your eyes. Most people can scan in 1.5-inch chunks, which, depending on the font size and type of text, usually comprise three to five words each.

    5. DON’T READ EVERY SECTION.
    According to Dartmouth College’s Academic Skills Center, it’s an old-fashioned myth that learners must read every part of a textbook or article. Unless you’re reading something extremely important.

    6. WRITE A SUMMARY.
    our job shouldn’t stop when you read the last word on the page. After you finish reading, write a few orders to summarize what you read, and answer any questions you had before you started reading.

    7. PRACTICE TIMED RUNS.
    Requesting a text strategically, reading actively, and reviewing effectively takes practice.
