Improve Your Reading, fifth edition, is not a gimmicky speed-reading method. This book presents a practical way to increase what you learn from texts, notes, and additional resources. The core belief is that it doesn't matter how much or how fast you read but how much you understand and remember what you are reading. This new and updated version provides fundamentals of reading across disciplines (literary classics and math textbooks) as well as styles (science journals and class notes.) Whether reading textbooks or your own notes, you will learn effective reading comprehension skills required for success in high school, college, and throughout life.
