The PX Project, a single 3-hour cognitive experiment, produced an You will 1) learn technique, 2) learn to apply techniques with speed. much more rapidly by adopting the speed-reading techniques described in this nical manual or academic paper, you can't help but regress (or yawn) from. present speed in the next month. Many techniques exist in speed reading, but you will find the techniques listed in this workbook the easiest to adapt to.

Test your reading speedOkay, now for some math: That is the averagenumber of words per line. Write it down;Haroon 4. Divide the total numbersof words you read by 10 and you have your words-per-minute. So now what? A "good" reading speed is around to words per minute, but some people can read athousand words per minute.
What makes the difference? Haroon 9. In order to learn to read rapidly and well youmust have acquired the necessary vocabulary. Skim the piece looking for sub-headings, images, graphs etc.
Try to get asense of what the reading is about. You can go backand reread at the end. Just read! DO NOT keep reading. Nearly doubled in half and hour, this stuff works!
Of course, my comprehension suffered when first applying the techniques, but I can see how once they become ingrained into my natural reading process, comprehension could actually improve from my standard reading because it requires more direct focus. In short, every habit works in a loop.
There is a there is a cue, that trigger an action the habit then is reinforced with a reward. The cue, to trigger my focus on the speed reading, would be the sight of chocolate behind every 10 pages. So seeing chocolate, triggered focus on speed reading, which was rewarded by eating that piece of chocolate.
Not exactly a long term solution for developing this habit loop, but it would work for my short term experiment of testing new speed reading techniques. Spritz display.

Results showed that took place in each reading session by the length of each read- that literal comprehension CA-literal was lower for Spritz than ing session s. Reading requires working memory to both integrate information extracted from text and retrieve information 3. Ordinal variables were analyzed with extraction during reading does not rely solely on fovea, but a Mann—Whitney U Test.
Means and standard deviations for each depends on a broad range of pre- and post-foveal processing. For of the dependent variables are reported in Table 1, and a correla- example, parafoveal processing helps preprocessing foveal infor- tion matrix is provided in Table 2. Schotter et al.

Task load: Hence, we could assert that reading with Spritz might con- 9 tribute to the increase of visual fatigue, with respect to traditional Blinks per minute 8 reading.
In contrast, subjective results VFS did not reveal any dif- ferences between the two reading modalities in terms of perceived 7 visual fatigue. This absence of subjective effects is in line with pre- 6 vious studies employing this measure in between-subjects designs, which are more sensitive to inter-subject variability e. In Spritz we allowed participants to make Fig. Visual fatigue: Vertical bars denote pauses whenever they needed.
The fact that some of the participants used pauses had an effect on their total time comprehension: On the contrary, in traditional reading we did not for this lack. As to Spritz, reading for more than Concerning visual fatigue, results on eye blinks indicated that 25 min without allowing the reader to naturally stop would have reading with Spritz leads to a larger decrease in the frequency of further worsened comprehension, visual fatigue, and task load, blinks with respect to traditional reading.
