Speed Reading – Breaking Old Habits

Unlike other skills we seem to have mastered as we grew up, reading and comprehension seem to be something we take for granted. If we read at normal speeds of around 120 words a minute with good comprehension we think that is enough. Think about it though, how many times have you read something and […]

How to Speed Read

I have been teaching memory training seminars for a long time! In the first few years of teaching people would always ask me, ‘Do you teach speed reading as well?’ I would tell them that I was a memory speaker and not a speed reading expert they are distinctly two skills. Then a few years […]

Process More Input Speed Reading

Two-Time USA Memory Champion, memory training expert and memory keynote, Ron White, has taught Speed Reading in his courses and believes everyone can benefit from learning the technique. Speed-reading is not just for nerds. Anyone can learn it. People who read things without really understanding what they read waste a great deal of time. By skimming over a page or newspaper, and only stopping to read something that catches the eye, you have to admit - you miss a lot!

Basic Speed Reading Exercises

Two Time USA Memory Champion and memory training expert and memory keynote Ron White shares his thoughts on speed reading exercises. As part of my Memory Exercises and Speed Reading Program I would like to offer a couple useful exercises to get you started and improve your reading speed. As children we learned how to read a certain way, and over the years we have continued to use the same methods. In other words, even though we have substantially increased our vocabularies we have not advanced our reading methods beyond the second grade! We are all creatures of habit. When we are comfortable with something we don’t like to move outside our comfort zone unless we are forced to. With our lives moving along on the “information highway” we need to make room in our time to take it all in, and this is where Speed Reading comes in.

Speed Reading Will Benefit Your Comprehension

Two Time USA Memory Champion and memory training expert and memory keynote Ron White has taught Speed Reading in his course, and believes that anyone can learn to read faster and comprehend more. While speed reading is advantageous for most people to save time and get more reading done, is also improves your ability to process information at an astonishing rate – and that means retaining what they learn, as well as enhance how to memorize anything they read.

Building Comprehension with Speed Reading

Two Time USA Memory Champion, memory training expert and memory keynote Ron White shares his thoughts on how every learner should develop the comprehension skills speed reading enhances to become a more efficient reader. When we read we use different methods for different subject matter. For instance, when we read a geometry book we read at a slower rate that we would if we were reading the bulleting board. Because the material is more technical you want to soak in the information and sometimes that requires going back over it again. With the bulletin board you read over the notes quickly until something catches your eye that you may want to write down or remember. In both cases you are trying to comprehend what you are reading, just in a different way and at a different speed.
