SPEED READING CHALLENGE
COURSE CONTENTS

This is an introduction chapter and if you are short on time you can skip this chapter. In this chapter I discuss about the course in general and give you a high-level view of the course.

In this chapter I explain about the Nelson Denny reading test that was conducted on my speed reading course and after the test all the participants doubled their reading speed and some participants even quadrupled their reading speed.

In this chapter I tell you about the benefits of speed reading and how learning this important skill will open up the door to a lot of opportunities in your life that were closed before.

In this chapter I give you a brief overview of all the topics that are covered in this course and why this speed reading course is different from the other speed reading courses you have taken in the past (if any).

In this chapter I tell you about the material you will need before we begin learning to speed read.

In this chapter we calculate your initial reading speed before we begin the speed reading program.

In this chapter I explain what learning is so that you have a better understanding of the term.

In this chapter I show you what is happening in your brain when you are reading something. You will understand the mechanics of how the brain actually reads text and how you can tweak this mechanism to read much faster.

This is one of the most important chapters in the speed reading program. In this chapter I will show you how the brain understands the whole while reading a part. I also give examples to illustrate how schema can be used to increase reading speed.

Learning is key to speed reading. In this chapter I show you the 3 different levels at which we learn while reading any material and how we can use this information to become better learners when we read.

Inflection changes the meaning of what you read. In this chapter I show you how you can use inflection to decipher patterns in the text you are reading so that you improve your understanding of the material you are reading.

This is a whole new way of reading. If you read using the techniques I show you in this chapter you will notice that reading becomes fun and memorable rather than boring and forgetful. Immersive reading takes reading to a whole new level.

Patterns are everywhere. In an earlier chapter we discussed what schema is and, in this chapter, we go a step further and I show you how to extract schema from the material you are reading.

Two people can read the same book yet their understanding of the material can be totally different. In this chapter I show you how we can change our perspective to get a better understanding of the material we are reading.

Reading faster without understanding what you are reading is of no use. In this chapter I show you how you can improve your understanding while reading at high speeds.

If your hand shows the way your eyes will follow. In this chapter I show you important hand motions that you can use to increase your reading speed. This takes some practice but once mastered the improvements in reading speeds are amazing.

Practice makes perfect. In this chapter I will show you a drill that will confuse you at first but the confusion is what brings about the improvements in reading speed. If time is limited and you are not able to do anything else then I would recommend you just practice this drill once or twice a day to get excellent results.

As I mentioned earlier schema is the single most important concept that will improve your reading speeds. That is why I have covered this topic in three different chapters and in this chapter, we take a closer look into the mechanics of schema.

Get ready to be amazed. In this chapter I will show you how to calculate your final reading speed.

In this chapter I will tell you about the 4 levels of competence and discuss about the level at which you should be in order to improve your reading skills.

In this chapter I will show you a unique method that you can use to read different parts of the book. We all read a book linearly ie from first page to last page, but what if there was a different way to read a book? I discuss about that in this chapter.

Reading is not always about words. Sometimes there are charts, numbers and diagrams. So how do we speed read those elements? Well, watch this chapter to find out.

Learning anything new can be made easier by associating it with something we already know. In this chapter I give you the example of Malcolm Knowles and how his technique can be used to make you a better reader.

In this chapter I will show you methods you can use to improve your learning and this will benefit you because learning is a lifelong endeavor.

We all dread exams but what if there were strategies that you could use to improve your exam taking skills? That is what I am going to show you in this chapter.

Studying should never be hard. There are always techniques and workarounds that you can use to make studying easier or to reduce the amount you need to study. I will discuss that in this chapter.

Emotional intelligence is an essential skill for your success in any field. I will show you techniques you can use to get into the emotional states that you need to succeed and how you can trigger these states.

We need to alter our reading techniques based on the material we are reading. We should not read a magazine the same way we read a text book. In this chapter I will show you how to alter your reading based on the type of material you are reading.

Repetition is key to learning. In this chapter I will show you how to use index cards to improve your memory.

Memory is the mother of all wisdom. In this chapter I will discuss basic memory techniques that you can use to remember almost anything. All you need is some creativity and practice.

The activity book contains the material you will need to complete your initial and final reading speed calculation along with all the references that are made during the course.
