Things You Did Not Know About Speed Reading Exercises

Speed reading exercises are meant to make the reader read faster while still retaining and understanding well enough what he reads. There are a few different ways about speed reading but the main object is to maintain a good compromise between going faster and understanding. Also to be noted; a good amount of practice is required.
There exists a few different ways to speed read like not pronouncing all of the words, speeding up word recognition so that focus on every individual letter is not necessary and generally scanning over the text. Different ways will come naturally to different people and these will reveal themselves with time and practice. As a general idea, getting your eyes to accelerate their movement and speeding up word recognition.
Skimming is the process by which a reader visually searches through the text for clues to the meaning of the article. Generally, this is not the best method for dense informational texts because comprehension rate is usually lower. On the other hand, it allows for a quick overview of the text and its essential meaning.
Meta guiding is another method, perhaps the most widely taught, that speeds up the reading process. It consists of guiding the eye along the lines of text using another pointer like a finger or a pen. This method speeds up the movement of the eye and subdues subvocalization.
A first speed reading exercise to start with consists of using a pointer like your finger to make your eyes follow it across the paragraph to go faster. Moving the finger faster and faster will force the eyes to recognize the words faster and make reading a faster process.
Another exercise to try to attempt to learn a speed reading technique consists of quickly scanning through the material to look for key words attached to the essential meaning of the sentences. In essence, this is reading in blocks and is also done in other exercises which can become more complicated.
The third exercise demands some additional setup time and small cards are necessary. The cards themselves need to have a few words written on each of them; blocks, phrases or pieces of sentences. In practicality will be to read the words on the index cards instead of reading a full text. During a few minutes, the reader must flip the cards and try to recognize the words written on each card. This will work on recognizing words to try to accelerate the process of recognizing a block of words.
In general, in order for speed reading exercises to be effective, some time must be invested. A rule of thumb is that it is recommended to have a good level of energy and have a good level of concentration to practice these exercises. To see worth while results, it takes time and lots of practice. Reading really fast is possible all the while keeping a good comprehension and retention of what is being read.
Speed reading can be a great tool for the academic or the professional world alike. It is fairly easy to learn and doesn’t cost a thing. All that is needed is a few speed reading exercises, some patience and a little determination.
our time is priceless. learn how to read better and quicker and read these speed reading tips and you will learn how to improve your reading speed quickly with few speed reading exercises.

"Living gives you a better understanding of life. I would hope that my characters have become deeper and more rounded personalities. Wider travels have given me considerably greater insight into how cultural differences affect not only people, but politics and art."

Fast fact about writing

Writers not writing for a living often find enjoyment and small payouts from Web sites seeking material to raise their sites higher in the search engine rankings.
