Check out Clark’s Channel: http://bit.ly/2iKCN76 Blinkist book summaries FREE trial: http://bit.ly/2cCoWxV In this video we’re going to look at 7 speed reading hacks that actually work. Now whether, you’re a student and need to get through not so great textbooks you’re forced to read, or someone who just wants to read faster and get the most out of valuable time spent with your nose in the books, than this videos for you. Visual regression is a fancy way of saying “re-reading and going back over what you just read SO fast that you don’t realize it” Think of riding a bicycle and for every 2 pedals forward you take one back. Definitely going to slow us down, right? If you want to read faster, force yourself to keep moving forward. To fight visual regression back peddling, use a pen, highlighter or your finger as a pacer so you can’t go back. I’ve even heard of people physically drawing lines with the pen as they read. Some of the tips in this book will teach you to speed read, but they will all answer your question on how to read faster.

All tips 1- visual regression-- don't backpedal. Use a pacer. 2- don't subvocalize- don't speak but read. JFK- reading speed 1200 wpm 3- use a song anchor loop- play same song again and again 4- don't start at the beginning- use your peripheral vision. Try to keep the eyes in the centre of the page Retain better 1- pre skim really fast, focus on what your reading not where. 2- reread 3- go deeper by questioning yourself on the book.

Instead of a song loop, listen to subliminals or binaural beats tailored to memory, study skills, concentration, etc.

what's the point of reading fast if u cant understand jack shit ? if i go above 170 wpm the words lose meaning for me even if i remember for a short time i quickly forget ( I believe that the same way as some materials retain and lose heat Fast heat absorption = Fast heat dissipation the same way the brain absorbs information. that's why we learn better from reading than from watching TV the TV gives you so much info in so little time your brain can't get a hold of it all and you're left with bits of info , i Know i'm slow but that's me

Aggelos Michail (2 years ago)
Friendly advice you your youtuber friend, i can notice in his voice that he isnt enjoying 100%, he sould let someone else talk and let his self do things we tends more to do. i sense it as an empathic person. cant say im accurate af, but i am 100% sure tho.clark tho doesnt sounds so wasted.But he is aswell close to it :P.Guys find the way to be honest with urselfes.
Aggelos Michail (2 years ago)
i agree with subvocalize ,i use song anhcor loop or something aswell fammiliar to just keep thinking waht i want.just in order to not get distracted.When f.e trying to caclulate things.If uy want to skip 3 questions to go deepe,i take breaks to thing and compromise what i know with waht this guy knows and make notes fro additional comprehension and keep doing that as long as i feel inspired, its rly great. i never felt i had to re read a book again, apart somethign super complicated with terms that are hardly understandable and metnion many less times.
Aggelos Michail (2 years ago)
I never used regression cause i shape in my imagination always waht im reading and im going with the tempo of it. So i litteraly miss nothing and can recall with absolute regognition everything that i said myself , thi sis interesting , rememeber it, take your time again think of it again, this can driven to a very nice conclusion, in the other side, in diversed situation i read fast till i check there is detail i need to check. I do it with very positive attitude and trust to myself i can read a book into 3 days and it can be 750 pages if im not distracted and have somehting nice to eat or drink and , the mood of enjoying reading so much is defining more than anything else.
Tim Johnson (2 years ago)
what i do is when i'm using my finger i skim threw each line and just read the words that are pointed with your finger. i can read a whole page of a book and comprehend whats going on in the story quite well. i skin threw each line after every 1-3 seconds. try this method of following your finger and reading the words your pointing at. tell me if this helped anyone. btw this takes some practice but eventually it gets easier
John Moore (2 years ago)
I've never paid attention to how quickly I read. My eyes have always floated across the words like a scanner. I'm practicing your tip on reading a sentence a word or two in. I believe I'll be reading much faster in days. Thank You!

What about reading in your head? Does that help you read/retain information faster or not?
Pedro Teixeira (2 years ago)

Angga Bayu (2 years ago)
The only thing to read faster is to read more and understand what you read. There is not tips at all. If you think you are too slow, then you don't enjoy your reading at all. There is no point to read what you don't want to read

mykono5 (2 years ago)
I wonder, does the techniques work in books like novels and any other fictional literatures? It seems most of this kind of tips are more likely aimed for non-fiction, self-help kind of books.
Wouldn't do it with fiction stuff, just my gut through. I don't read much of it. Give it a shot!

300% sounds like bs to me. Sounds like a made up number just to make it sound fancy.
Nah - avg reading pace is 200WPM so 3x would be 600WPM wich is super doable with these tips! Give it a shot.

mattig89ch (2 years ago)
Just bought the book for the A+ Cert. Skimming, then re-reading seemed like an interesting idea to try. I've never found a good way to study for me, but I'm going to try this, and see if this works. One other idea for studying, I've heard, is to take notes after every page you actually read. condensing each page into a single paragraph.
Awesome dude - best of luck with your certifications. Get out there and crush it.
Aly (2 years ago)
This was fantastic but you spelled "condense" wrong...
he was condense the extra letter out :)

You bet dude! Ever try sparknotes? Not sure if that's still around, but I swear I used them for that same book in High School

Do you guys prefer to read/work to songs with lyrics or instrumentals? I usually find myself listening to "alpha wave" music. Not because it's "alpha wave", but just because it's good background music. Ha
Baron St. Von (2 years ago)
Yeah, the binaural beats. To be honest, I don't really believe in the pseudo-science of them, but they are relaxing and help me read/work. ha
Good stuff! I've fallen asleep to it a couple times. Binaural beats stuff, right?
Baron St. Von (2 years ago)
I sooo agree with re-reading. We retain incredibly little information from our first run at something. It's why practice/rehearsing is so necessary
Jj Corbin (2 years ago)
I think immersion reading with repeated song is great
Good book! Haven't made it through PC yet - i've heard great things though.
Jj Corbin (2 years ago)
+Clark Kegley actually doing it right now! today 'read' 6 pillars of self-esteem and now working on psycho cybernetics. it's help a lot. immense thanks again! (:
Fantastic, JJ!

Where can i find the background music from this video. I want to use it while reading. 😊
samme79 (2 years ago)
How about the difference between reading through the computer and reading an actual book? Is there a difference as to retention and comprehension? Or is it basically just down to preference? Thanks
Would love to see that as well!

When it comes to tip #6 Sophie's World is the book I love to re-read. One of the best books on the history of Philosophy told in an interesting way. I highly recommend it to everyone. Awesome collaboration guys :)

whmozart (2 years ago)

Tim Volk (2 years ago)
With a new book, first I assign it a permanent 3x5 card for notes, bookmark, etc., and then I take 10 minutes to look at every page to get pictures and graphs in my head and to skim chapter titles, captions and bold text. I also dogear most pics and highlight areas of interest. Respecting the integrity of book pages is a huge mistake. 20 minutes for a second reading, similar to the first with more depth and a different color highlighter. Finally, a 30 minute third reading when I zigzag read the book's full text with a third color highlighter. After that I know which of the book's text blocks need concentrated reading and which can be ignored.
Interesting tips, Tim! Good stuff.
Rena M (2 years ago)
