You don’t have to be a great reader to get the point.

Some people read fast and remember everything. Others read slowly and take a couple of times to get all the information. It doesn’t matter, really, so long as when you read, you get the information you’re seeking.

(6)  You  need to read everything carefully.  {Reading comprehension practice }

(7) Scan before you read{Reading comprehension practice }

Look at the table of contents, index, topic headers, photo captions, etc. These will help you determine if, a) you have a real interest in this reading, and b) what information you’re likely to get from it.

(8)Prioritize your reading. {Reading comprehension practice }

You can’t read everything all at once (and wouldn’t want to). If it’s important, read it now. If it’s not, let it wait.

(9) Optimize your reading environment. {Reading comprehension practice }

You’ll read faster and comprehend more if you read in an environment that’s comfortable for you.

(10)Once you start, don’t stop! {Reading comprehension practice }

Read each item straight through. If you finish and have questions, go back and re-read the pertinent sections. If you don’t have questions, you got what you needed and are ready to move on.

(11) Focus. {Reading comprehension practice }

Remember, you’re reading with a purpose, so focus on that purpose and the material. If you lose interest or keep losing your place, take a break or read something else. You can keep track of where you are by following along with your hand. This simple technique helps you focus and increase your concentration.
