Moreover, we give and teach every effective speed reading technique you need to know for your Speed Reading Life.
Let’s examine the ways that to read faster;
1- Set A Goal
To have effective speed reading ability and to have high reading comprehension ability, you need to set a goal before beginning reading. You need to set a goal, you must have a goal in your reading life. You should also make reading plans for your reading life.
For example; you should make daily, weekly and monthly reading plans. From day-to-day, you can plan to read some amount of pages everyday. You can finish a book every week, and maybe from every month you can finish multiple books but you must have a reading plan.
2- Choosing Specific Topic
Most of the readers in the world make this mistake. They may choose the book topic that they don’t like and it is likely that the reader will give up on finishing to read the book because once any person chooses a topic that he or she doesn’t like, there won’t be a high level of reading efficiency. It is important to choose the reading topic that readers like to read.
Some readers don’t like to read in a specific area. Readers shouldn’t choose the specific topic to only read the book even though the book can be friends’ recommendation or any recommendation. It doesn’t matter if the reader doesn’t like to read in a specific area, the reader should never choose the topic where the reader doesn’t like to read in a specific area.
3- Use a Timer to Test Yourself
Have you ever heard of the speed reading test ?
Most of the readers are curious to test their reading speed. Most readers think that they should take specific speed reading tests , but in reality, every speed reading test is based on using timers while reading to count how many words a reader reads per minute. Every speed reading test is based on using a timer. And you can basically test your reading speed extremely easily.
For example; you can determine the specific time period that you want to read and you can use your phone to count 1 minute. Then you begin to count, and you can immediately begin to read the pages you choose to read. Once the time is finished, you can count how many words you read, and with this way you can easily test yourself. It is the most effective speed reading test technique in the world. There is no better speed reading test than this one.
You should always count how many words you read per minute. For example; as a Speed Reading Coach I can read 1500 words per minute, and in the future I will also improve my reading speed much better than reading 1500 words per minute. You should always push yourself to increase your reading speed and to increase your reading comprehension because your brain is capable of doing much more of that. Thanks to using a timer, your reading speed will become much higher and your reading comprehension will be increased in the long-term.
4- Emotional State & Stress
To be able to have high reading speed, we have to protect our emotional state and we shouldn’t have stress. For example; it doesn’t matter how good a speed reader you are, if you have a low level of Emotional State, and high level of Stress, you won’t be able to use your speed reading ability effectively. And in the long term, if you have a low emotional state again, it will be the same. You have to protect your Mental Health and Mental Wellness. You should always have either no stress or a low level of stress, and you should always have a high level emotional state so that you can increase your reading speed much better.
5- Moving Only Eyes- Not Moving Head While Reading
During reading, most of the readers in the world make this mistake. Most readers move their head while reading and they don’t move their eyes properly while reading. This is one of the biggest problems in reading and speed reading because you should always and you should only move your eyes while reading and you should never move your head while reading. There is no meaning to moving your head while reading because there is no benefit to doing it. If you do it, you are going to only waste your time.
On our 21 Days Speed Reading Course, we teach how to not move your head and how only you should move your eyes while reading, and we teach how you can benefit your highest peripheral vision area and how you don’t waste eye movements while reading. Please check out our 21 Day Speed Reading Course.
6- Quit Re-Reading
During reading, as a reader, sometimes we may not understand the page. And we can move on on the next page. But once we move on to the next page, we may think about the previous page and we may want to move on the previous page back to repeat the page and re-read the page. This is not good on reading and it is not good on speed reading because if you repeat the page for reading, it will become your habit, and you want to repeat the situation again in the future.
Our brains will tend to adopt laziness while reading, this is not good for speed reading and effective reading. You should never repeat the same page again. The only solution to this problem is adopting to not repeat the page and always move forward while reading.
Please keep in mind that while reading, don’t stop to turn back and always keep forward with your maximum reading speed efficiency.
7- Take Notes While Reading
It is important to take notes during reading. Most of the book page includes a lot of details and unnecessary information, but some parts of the books or some paragraphs may include the main idea of the book and may include extremely important information. It is an extremely good and effective habit to take notes because if you’re going to use the specific information on the book you read in your future, you will definitely need to remember the information in your future.
And by taking effective notes, we can benefit from this important information and main ideas with highest efficiency. As a speed reading coach, I would suggest you to underline the valuable information while reading.
While reading, it is important for you to either take note or you can underline the place because once you underline to places that are important in the book, in the future, if you need to remember the book for the specific information, you may reach the information easily with this way.
8- Examining Book Chapters
Most of the books we read have chapters at the beginning book’s pages. Unfortunately, most of the readers directly begin to read to book without examining these important chapters. It is one of the most common mistakes among the readers. To have a high reading speed efficiency and high level of reading comprehension, we have to examine these chapters before beginning reading.
We have to take a look at these chapters and we have to read these chapters carefully and examine them more than one time because once we examine them carefully, we are going to know what we are going to read and we are going to be aware of what we are going to learn and get from the book. I can guarantee you as a speed reading coach, this is one of the best speed reading tactics.
I can finish reading hundreds of pages this way between 15 or 20 minutes easily with high reading comprehension. The chapter index is critical because once you know what you are going to read, you are going to be able to use your speed reading ability much better and you are going to have higher reading comprehension then your previous reading time.
9- Using Peripheral Vision
Using the highest efficiency of peripheral vision is extremely critical in reading because we have to benefit the entire Vision Area on the book page with highest efficiency, and we shouldn’t waste our eye moments. Most of the readers waste their eye movements while reading. And if you waste your eye movements while reading, you also waste your time and you will have low reading speed and low reading comprehension. Peripheral Vision is also one of the most important rules on speed reading.
From our 21 Days Speed Reading Course, we teach you how you can use your personal Vision with highest efficiency while reading. We teach everything that you need to know to increase your peripheral vision with maximum efficiency and we also teach how you can improve your eye movements much better.

10- Reading At Quiet Place
Most of the readers face distractions while reading. For example; you may need something on the bus or public place and there will be a lot of noise in the atmosphere. Your reading comprehension won’t be as effective as you want because your focus and attention ability will be distracted. To increase your reading speed with much better efficiency, we have to choose to read in quiet places. For example; if you are at home, it will be hard to focus on the book within a noisy room or in front of the television.
We should choose a quiet place or quiet room to read all reading materials. It is the same on the outside or the place wherever you want to read. Please keep in mind that you should always use your focus, and attention level on highest efficiency because to increase our reading speed and to increase our reading comprehension on the next level, we need to be able to benefit our focus and attention ability on highest efficiency.
11- Stop Doing Subvocalization:
Subvocalization is the biggest problem on speed reading. Subvocalization is the reason that why most of the readers in the world have low reading speed and low reading comprehension. Subvocalization is the little voice between your mouth and your brain while reading. This little voice affects your reading ability negatively, and because of this little voice, you would get distracted easily and your reading comprehension will be affected extremely negatively.
Please keep in mind that subvocalization is the biggest enemy of your reading. Subvocalization is the real reason why you read with low reading speed and low reading comprehension.
The only solution to eliminate subvocalization permanently is not repeating what you read from your inside. You should never repeat what you read from your inside while reading. It is the most terrible habit of reading and it affects your reading habit extremely negatively. From our 21 Day Speed Reading Course, we teach how you can eliminate Subvocalization extremely easily, and once you eliminate it, you are not going to repeat what you read from your insight.
You are going to increase your reading ability on an extreme level. You are going to increase your reading speed and comprehension on the top level. Please keep in mind that you should never do Subvocalization while reading.
12- Always Read Something
To increase our reading speed, we have to make reading as our daily habit. We should always read something and we should read it everyday. Some of us may complain that they don’t have time to read something everyday but every people in the world have spare time. Every readers can create time during the day. Every readers can benefit from their spare time by reading. And anyone can create daily reading time. The amount of pages doesn’t have to be high, but as soon as the person reads something, that’s okay.
13- Visual Placer
Visual Placer is the most effective way to increase your reading speed. Visual Placer is the most important rule on speed reading because you have to support your eye movements while reading to increase your reading speed. By only using visual placer you can increase your reading speed extremely easily.
