Effective Speed Reading™ will treble your reading speed and save many, many hours!
- Dramatically increase your reading speed - most people double and even treble their reading speed whilst maintaining comprehension. So if you spend 40% of your day reading, when you learn to speed read and just double your reading speed (without losing comprehension) you'll save a day a week.
- Prioritise and save time - read what's important and have more time to get on with your other work.
- Improve your efficiency and effectiveness - through greater comprehension and easier recall of information.
- Manage information more effectively - expand your knowledge base and make informed decisions.
- Slash time spent studying - condense reading and recall information more effectively in lectures, exams and assignments.
- Increase competence and confidence - build knowledge and understanding of any subject - and be able to recall it when you need it!
