Learning how to speed read is important in studying for nursing school. It is practical for student nurses especially in studying lengthy lessons from school.
What is Speed Reading?
Speed reading is the technique of learning important bits of information while reading quickly. You don’t need to read a selection word-by-word as you will only pick important parts worth remembering.
Methods of Speed Reading
Speed reading can be done in several ways. Here are some of the most popular methods:
Skimming is a reading method where you skip reading the unimportant parts of a selection. Determining the parts you should skip reading in a quick glance is a skill that takes time to develop. Skimming cuts reading time by up to 50% butstudies have shown that only few details are retained in the memory during skimming.
2. Meta Guiding
Meta guiding is using your finger or any pointer in guiding your eyes to specific words. The purpose of the pointer is to direct your focus and to reduce distraction while you speed up reading. It trains your mind to expand your visual span so you can read selections in chunks rather than in word-by-word basis.
