Using a visual placer is essential for speed reading.

Speed readers are aware of this situation, and they don’t go back to re-read the area. They don’t also re-read the previous pages while reading. It is important to not waste any time on any reading area. When you do it, your brain will adapt to do this action over and over again, and every time you want to repeat this action.
