How to increase your Reading Speed

After most of the exams like IBPS, GMAT, GRE, CAT and SAT got online, reading speed became a crucial part in preparation strategy. Today I am going to share amazing skills to speed up your reading speed. Most of the times readers complaints that they could do better if they had more time. You can save lot of time by increasing your reading speed. This would help you not in scoring high in English Language section but also increase your score in all other sections as you will read and understand questions and statements quickly. These techniques will help you build reading skills. So here are the techniques :-

Divide a line into parts 

This is my favorite technique. In this technique we divide every line into two or three parts. To try this technique read loudly by dividing each line into three parts. Once you feel that you are comfortable in doing that, divide every line into three parts.

What to learn

Never read word by word rather read by group of words. 

Concentrate on First and Last alphabet of a Word

This is my favourite technique. Many friends and followers experienced 60-70% increase in their reading speed and hence their a reasonable impact on their score. I am sure you are understanding what I am saying, try to read this :-

What to learn 

Concentrate on first and last character, practising this technique will increase your reading speed manifold.

Never stop anywhere

One of the most common mistake that people commit is they try to find meaning of each word whereas it is not required. While reading a comprehension, you can make out meaning of every word throught the central idea and flow of paragraph. 

Improve your Vocabulary and Grammar

The more you understands a language, higher would be your speed. Have you ever noticed your speed while reading a newspaper in your native language. I tested this on more than 20 respondents, average speed was more than 600 words a minute while reading in second language, average speed was less than 250 a minute.

What to learn

Improve your grammar and vocabulary. You don't need to do anything else, this is not a trick rather this is a scientific fact. I recommend you to buy these two book which I refer frequently
  • Word Power Made Easy
  • English grammar by Murphy

Practice more by reading online Blogs and Newspapers

Practice makes a man perfect. If you start reading newspapers and blogs, you will experience increase in your reading speed as well hold on language.

What to learn

Read newspaper everyday, you may also download newspaper apps on your smartphones. I read Indian Express. I love "The Hindu" but it is not available in my city, else it is my first choice. I won't give any negative review those silly "AD FIRST" newspapers. Their main goal is to attract people with graphics and stupid news, whereas these newspapers are filled with ads and paid news. These are one of the top newspapers in India.

  2. If you can read this you have a strange mind too.can you read this? Only some people can. I couldn’t believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. the phenomenal power of human mind Acc. To a research at Cambridge university it doesn’t matter in what order the letter in a word are the only imp. Thing is that the first n last letter can be right place the rest can be total mess and u can still read it without a prob. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself,but the wordAs a whole. Amazing huh? Yeah and I always thought spelling was imp. If you can read this share it

    1. Hi Vijayan,
      I think everybody knows this fact there PSU bank jobs are not target oriented. These are 9 to 5 jobs. Definition of marketing in PSU is - Serve the customers who enters your door. It's nothing like go and fetch. You will be surprised to see the level comfort these people are enjoying.

      Hope it helped
