Improving reading efficiency is not just a matter of moving one’s eyes more quickly over the pages; it is a matter of using one’s mind more actively and one’s attention more judiciously. This course will help you read purposefully and strategically, improving focus, comprehension, and efficiency. This course also includes the unique INSEAK® approach to reading, which shows you exactly how to read – for information and knowledge. These skills are extremely invaluable for those taking up such standardized tests as GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, IELTS, etc., which test your reading and verbal comprehension.
The course doesn’t teach one best way to read; instead, it helps students develop a whole toolkit of reading strategies. A common assumption is that the only proper way to read something is to read every word, word by word, in order, from beginning to end, and so improving your reading must mean doing the same thing, only faster. That assumption is generally based on our earliest reading experiences – reading aloud or being read to for the purpose of learning how to decipher the code of written language. For that purpose, linear word-by-word.
