Most people want to learn how to speed read in order to save time while reading their favourite books or other reading materials. It's not that difficult to learn, it all depends on how much time you spend practising with our easy to follow steps.

In order to make use of this short article you must be willing to follow our steps so you can start practicing them and in a short time read faster.

It doesn't matter what type of reader are you at the moment, speed reading is not that hard to master when you have the right information on how to speed read.

Step 1: Have your eyes checked

In order to start with the first basic step in your journey to speed reading first you must have good eyes or have your eyes checked at a professional eye doctor, because most people read slowly because of their vision problems.

So the first thing you must check on your list is to have perfect eye vision, if you are not sure about your eye problems you can easily take an eye exam at a specialist.

The next thing you must do is timing your current reading speed. It is very important for you to know before you start applying our steps how fast are you reading right now so you can keep track of your future performance.

Before you start reading make sure there are no distractions around you, turn off the TV or go in a quiet room where no one can bother you.

The next advice is related to your personality. Before you open the book you must decide how fast you are willing to read.

Step 2: Not to reread

In step two on how to read fast you will learn some basic tips that you can apply on your own. The most important thing when trying to speed read is no to reread. Try not to reread a sentence or a paragraph, doing so will save you a great amount of time. Another important factor is not to read to oneself or stop reading to oneself.

To read with your hand is another important factor when you learn how to read quickly. The basic principle that lies behind this fact is that your eyes will follow motion so will be constantly bushing yourself forward.

Step 3: Practice!

As I said earlier in this article, speed reading comes only with practice, you must practice and practice until you are happy with your reading time. You must practice reading blocks of words instead of just reading one word at a time. Doing so will save you time and effort and most important if you apply our steps you will notice an increase in your performance.

The next thing you should keep in mind is that you must always push yourself, while practicing try to force yourself to read faster and faster. Start easy and work your way up and push the limits so you can achieve perfection.

Last but not least keep a track of your reading time so you can see improvements and as I said in this article practice and more practice leads to learning how to speed read.
