Speed Reading A Must For Students Of All Ages

I have blogged about Speed Reading countless times on this blog as well as reinforced how my Speed Reading Video Program works.

Today is a little different because I was interviewed about Speed Reading and Accelerated Learning Techniques on a very well respected blog.

Click on the hyperlink to read the interview on how to leverage accelerated learning techniques and speed reading to get better grades.

As you well know by now, I don’t endorse many products, but this one’s different because it’s software that helps you track your progress and adjusts the strategies to suit your particular areas of improvement.

I highly recommend it in addition to my Speed Learning Video Program, in fact there is a special limited time offer on right now that you should seriously consider. Click on the hyperlink to read all about it!

Man’s best reading buddy

The public library in Sudbury, Ontario, has teamed up with a therapy dog group to give some kids a chance to read to a furry friend.

Monique Roy, the Greater Sudbury Public Library‘s children’s librarian, is a dog lover herself and has owned a therapy dog. She had been looking for a way to combine that part of her life with her passion for youth literacy. Thus began Reading Tails, a program to help kids aged 6 to 12 improve their reading skills by reading aloud to canine companions from Magical Paws Pet Therapy.

“Kids seem to react to the dogs a little bit better,” Roy told the CBC. “The dogs listen, they don’t comment, they don’t critique, and the kids feel like they’re gaining something. And also, they feel a connection with the dog — that they’re reading to the dog, they’re doing a service to the dog. So they just feel better.”

Margaret Julian has recently started bringing her seven-year-old smooth-haired Daschund named Liesl (named after the character in The Sound of Music) to the program. She believes reading to dogs relaxes children and is an enjoyable way to improve literacy.

“They can concentrate, and they can have fun at the same time. I have as much [fun] as they do, I think. I always have a laugh when I come here.”

David, a young boy who is taking part in Reading Tails, loves petting and cuddling with Liesl during reading sessions. A reporter asked him whether reading to a dog was different than reading to his mother.

“Yes, because mom doesn’t bark,” he said.

Speed Reading Results

If you haven’t yet purchased my Speed Reading Video Program, this is what you’re missing out on – RESULTS LIKE THESE. One of my ‘students’ sent me his actual results with the condition of anonymity because I know he’s going to improve even more than this.

These are comparisons of three different tests before and after using my speed reading technique.

Speed Read THIS Book!

As you know, I’m a speed reader and I also teach students how to speed read with my home study video program.

As you increase your reading speed, running out of pages to read becomes a problem – NOT in this case!

Speed Reading, Read Faster

Huge Book - Great For Speed Readers!

Sleep Reading?

As a reader of this blog, you know I’m an advocate of Speed Reading, with a program that guarantees you can double your reading speed in less than one hour.

This photo was just too good not to share with you – One of the biggest mistakes you can ever make is to read in bed, creating a neural association between reading and fatigue, but that being said, you have to admit, this photo is PRICELESS!

How To Speed Read

Sleep Reading?

ADHD Students

I am not into labels – I think they are a self-fulfilling prophecy. I know too many people who claim to be the World’s Worst (Best?) Procrastinator and buy ‘owning’ that label, they are reinforcing the very behaviour they actually want to avoid.

With ADHD it’s often the same thing, but that is a discussion for another day.

If you think you have ADD or ADHD, let me show you how you can USE your so-called affliction and HELP you get BETTER GRADES.

Watch the video below and you’ll see if you can keep up. If you can’t you certainly don’t have ADD or ADHD.

If you can keep up – FANTASTIC. It doesn’t mean you have or don’t have ADD or ADHD, it just means you can read really, really fast.

Chances are if you think you’re ADHD or ADD, you simply lack the discipline to FOCUS, when Speed Reading – YOU HAVE TO FOCUS, you have NO CHOICE.

Speed Reading Advantages

If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between reading and speed reading, here’s a quick comparison table for you.

Average Reader Speed Reader
Words Per Minute 200-300 600-1,200
Comprehension Needs to re-read the same text several times Reduced need to re-read, if required with new material, does it FASTER
Memory recall Poor due to lack of focus and attention due to the long time it takes to read Excellent BECAUSE of laser-like focus for short periods of time
Boring and Banal Material Puts you to sleep Get it over and done with quickly
Theoretical Textbooks Can’t get to the core issues without losing focus Get to the central points quickly to understand them better
Dyslexic Students Struggle to read – avoid it as much as possible Proven to improve reading speed by 200 to 500%.
Lazy Students Read half as much as they should Read everything they should because they are 2 to 3 times faster
Top Students Read instead of going out with friends Can still get top grades AND have a social life
Mature Students Get inundated with pre-requisite material they need to read to get the background to the current material – always struggling to keep up Get through the background material in a fraction of the time to focus on learning the stuff that’s on the exam!
Athletes Usually don’t get good grades because they spend so much time training for their sport Can get through ALL their reading material WITHOUT compromising their athletic performance
Business People Usually skim and skip their reading material – often missing key principles Can not only read ALL their course material, but save valuable time so their career doesn’t suffer while their ‘in school’
‘Bad Students’ Never quite get the consistent As and Bs Gain confidence because this makes them ‘smarter’ than their friends!
Parents Don’t know how to help them get better grades This is a quick and easy skill to learn that is PROVEN to work and improve students’ grades

Readers Make 2.3 Times More Money!

Here’s an astounding fact – readers make more money – a lot more! Even in tough economic times. According to a number of recent studies, business people who read at least seven business books a year earn over 2.3 times more than those who read only one book per year.

Why?

One reason is they have a constant flow of new ideas and strategies they can use to help their careers, their teams and their companies.

A study by Bersin & Associates found that while 74.9% of all managers understand that reading more would give them a competitive advantage, they simply think they don’t have the time to read more books.

The problem … who has time to do all that reading?

The solution… Learn how to do speed reading! It’s easy and guaranteed!

Reducing Exam Anxiety

Today’s blog post is based on a comment from Ad Poi, he’s a little stressed because he has an exam in about 3 weeks. I recently filmed a video called “5 Minutes To Go From Panic To Passing Tomorrow’s Exam” which is now included as a bonus to my study book Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort. In the video, I explain 5 strategies you can use to cram for an exam if you’ve run out of time and are stuck at the last minute with too much to study and not enough time to get it done.

The other suggestion I have for Ad is to get my Speed Reading Video Program. Rapid Reader is FANTASTIC for WORD, PDF and Website reading, but when it comes to reading your textbooks, you need to know how to speed read.

Hi Dr Dussault,

I came to know about your book and your strategies recently.Your strategies, you say, help get the best grades with the least amount of effort, but I wonder if they are going to help me since , I have 3 and a half weeks until my exam and I feel not quite prepared.

What I need are strategies to get the most done with the least amount of time, not the least effort. I am willing to give in a great deal of effort , but I am anxious and afraid that I won’t be able to complete all the courses to my satisfaction (especially chemistry, which I hate and have neglected greatly until now).

So, I ask whether your book will help me get the best grades with the least amount of TIME?

I have managed to get a copy of the rapid reader software yesterday, and am trying to increase my onscreen as well as off-screen reading speed.

My greatest drawback though is that I get quite nervous during exams and my efficiency is more than halved. As a result, my grades are compromised even though I worked hard. So I ask whether your book can help me getting rid of this anxiety and increase my concentration.

Thank You.

Speed Reading And Highlighting

Today’s post is in response to a comment to a previous post on personal development books for students and one on speed reading. Both of them ask the same question “When speed reading, should I highlight? While I do speed reading or after?”

When You Should Highlight When Speed Reading

Getting Better Grades Is A System

If you’ve been subscribed to my blog for a while, you’ve come to realise that my study book is a system that teaches how to think like an A student without having to spend hours and hours studying, becoming a nerd or a geek. The best way to explain what I do for students is to hear from them directly, like David Fisher below:

Hello Marc

I have been reading your study ebook and have only once listened to your speed reading video once.

The extra emails you send after I bought your study book are great as they keep me on track, otherwise I would wonder a bit.

I am working on a better format for my notes with more drawings and mindmaps as this is a better form of learning for me and audio tapes. (Now that I know
this thanks to your book!)

Exams start end of the month so the next stage is to compile my class notes into A3 mindmap layouts (any extra tips on this technique) would be good and then
the exams.

I am now in a study room not the office which had too many distractions and getting into the mind zone more quickly – it’s the little suggestions like this that make all the difference.

I don’t cold read my study guide and text anymore so I pre-read first to get a general understanding then highlight and compose the notes and now I
comprehend and remember a lot more. I can afford to do this because I can do speed reading, even though I still need to improve and increase my reading speed.

My assignment grades have increased from about 60-80% to the last one which I got 88%!!! This was my highest grade. :-)

My studies are extramural so no lecturers only Webct, study guide and textbooks.

I am practicing my speed reading and using on my first read but need to work on this more. When you speed read a page when do you highlight the text? I read the paragraph then go back and highlight?

So lots more to learn!

Thanking you very much for you help.

David Fisher

Stay tuned for the answers to David’s questions about MindMapping and highlighting while or after Speed Reading


Speed Reading Is Easy…

Today’s post is from yet another graduate of my Speed Reading Video Program.

Dear Dr. Marc Dussault,

I want to thank u 4 ur help with studyin and reading fasta… It is actually something dat has really bothered me cuz I know I’m smart but findin da right study type dat fits me has been my challenge. It’s like u said something is trying to bust out of me, that genius in me. I just left secondary school and u know b4 dat my teachers were tellin me dat I could do it cuz dey knew what I waz capable of but as one teacher likened me to the Ntherlands football team “exellent team (players) but low performance”. I know I can do it.

I can be that GENIUS that I was made to be. Thanks 4 ur help sir and I hope to know u physically in the nearest future, I even see myself talking about u and ur work, how it tranformed me on TV, u know interviewing me… . I am in the sciences (aeronautical engineering) like all science, robotics, rc stuffs. C u soon

Onward and Upward YEAH!

Isn’t that amazing? You too can learn speed reading and get better grades… Many graduates are not native English Speakers, which means if you are English speaking, you have an adavantage… But y’know what? Speed Reading works in ALL languages!

Personal Development Books For Students

Quite a few students have asked me which books I recommend after they’ve read my study book. I post my top book recommendations on my Linked In Profile. It includes all the books I recommend for Business, Professional and Career Development. If you’re athletic, you’ll want to subscribe to my Mindset Of A Champion Blog, which lists a different collection of books that I recommend for serious (elite) athletes – focused on Mental Toughness. With these two book lists, you can learn the foundations of an Exponential Mindset. If you are not English Speaking, I am sure most of the classics have been translated into your language.

Want Better Grades? Think Like A Champion

You might not know that I have several blogs. One blog that I want to highlight today is the one called the Mindset Of A Champion. I simply want to ask you to go and check it out because there are a lot of parallels between learning and mastering a sport and getting better grades. Bookmark it or better yet, subscribe to it so you don’t miss any of the posts, you just don’t know which one will be the one that will have the breakthrough idea that will make all the difference.

Get Better Grades Testimonial

You might have taken a look at my study book and considered buying it. If you haven’t bought it yet, listen to David’s experience and ask yourself – if it works for him, why wouldn’t it work for you?

Hello Marc

I have been reading your e book and have only once listened to your speed reading video. The extra emails are great as it keeps me on track otherwise I could wander a bit and lose focus on what I should be doing rather than just go through the motions.

I am working on a better format for my class notes with more drawings/mind maps as this is a better form of learning for me and audio recordings. (Now that I know this from your book that explained how to determine my own learning style).

Exams start end of the month so the next stage is to compile the notes into A3 mind maps layouts.

I am now in a study room not the office which had too many distractions that prevented me from getting into the right mind ‘zone’.

I don’t cold read my study guide and text any more so I pre-read first to get a general understanding then highlight and compose the notes and now I comprehend more. (I can’t believe the difference this makes!)

My assignment grades have increased from about 60-80% to the last one 88% and this was the highest grade. :-)

My studies are extramural so no lecturers only Webct and study guide/text books.

I am practicing your speed reading techniques and using it the first time I read something but need to work on this more.

Thanking you very much for you help.
