Fast Effective Reading (*aka speed reading) is an essential personal tool to maximise your time when reading whether at school or university, at work or at leisure.

Computer screens. These problems are especially acute when reading from computer screens. Research* has indicated that when reading from computer screens, speeds can drop by up to 30%. Concentration and retention also suffer, resulting in poor use of valuable time.

*NB Fast Effective Reading is not the same as Speed Reading or Rapid Reading. There the emphasis is on “Speed” or “Rapid”. This Fast Effective Reading course aims to double reading speeds, but also to improve concentration, comprehension and retention by 20/30%. Speed Reading and Rapid Reading courses tend only to provide skimming systems, which do little to improve overall reading effectiveness. So think twice before taking either a Speed Reading course or Rapid Reading course!
