Study information on fast reading to dispel myths about this wonderful technique. Remember that fast reading it is simple the word, the sold brand. Actually all practicians are directed on that your brain acquired as much as possible information for a short time. It is reached due to training of so-called rational reading when the person does not pronounce the text, does not come back to read to understand sense. On the contrary, his eyes are in the center of a line. Eyes do not run on lines, and go down from top to down. This so-called vertical reading. At fast reading the point of view extends, information processing speed increases. To feel result in a month, it is necessary to be engaged for two hours every day.

Accustom yourself to thought that all texts different and demand the different speed of reading and different concentration of attention. The technology of fast reading was developed for people who deal with scientific literature: theses, instructions, multipage analytical reports. Therefore you should not plunge into easy entertaining article deeply. For such texts there is enough couple of views.

Read the text not mechanically, and on special algorithm. For example, beginners on courses force to break it into logical components: the heading, the author of the text, what source of information is used, a thematic originality, the facts (if it is about the report or article), novelty of material (for theses), opinions and criticism. It is useful to read with a metronome or the program which imitates it. The metronome is established on 60 beats per minute.

Pay attention to eyes. Carry out exercises for development of peripheral sight. For example, look in one point directly before you, but thus try to see that occurs around. It seems strange, but after a while you learn to do it. It will help to approach vertical reading closely. But already at the beginning try to hold a look in the center of a line and to read vertically. At first it will be difficult, but after a while it will become a habit. It is better to begin with plain texts. Vitamin drops for eyes and selection of the correct points will facilitate life.

Train a brain. Pronunciation of the text, a leaping from a line on a line and regression (that is return to the read text) now under a ban. The technology of fast reading means semantic guesses when you quickly grab an essence. Shulte's tables are very useful. They can be downloaded on the Internet, but it is better to make by hand. Draw a square five on five cages. In everyone write figures or letters in any order. Then, holding a look in the center, try to find other numbers.
