Reading Comprehension Tips

In order to read more effectively, these following steps can be followed: 1)Try to only read when you are fully awake. If you are tired, you will not be able to retain as much information than if you were fully awake. 2)Read for short time intervals to give your brain time to absorb the information. 3)Read in a place where you don’t have many distractions and can fully concentrate on your reading. 4)Comprehend what you are reading. Often times, readers will have their eyes moving down a page but they are not paying attention to the words. Try to ensure that you are getting the full meaning of the entire section that you are reading. 5)Skim what you are reading in order to have a general idea of what you are reading so that you can focus on the important details. 6)Finally, use the textbook to your advantage. Textbooks usually contain bold and italics to highlight important points within the text. Use these to know which information to pay extra attention to.
