More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 6+.

Learning to read fast is one thing, but reading fast and understanding everything you just read is another.


This course will do just that!


The English Speed Reading for NOOK devices course provides an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use training technique. In our three-part and four-level course, you will be trained to:


Use your peripheral vision effectively to quickly grasp large text portions
Increase the speed of perception by means of tachistoscopic recognition
Read sample texts with visual aids for accelerating your current reading speed at an even greater rate



The course is comprised of four levels:


Beginner
Intermediate
Advanced
Master


When you launch the program for the first time, you must select the desired difficulty level. If you are new to this program, it is recommended that you select the Beginner level. You can then work your way up to Master and read at astronomically fast speeds with comprehension you never though you could achieve!


There are also additional sections in the app including:


Training to start from the beginning or to resume practicing from where you left off
Exercises to choose training tasks of your own accord
Testing to evaluate your current reading speed
Statistics to check your speed reading progress

    I had hoped this would help renew my speed reading skills. Inste

    I had hoped this would help renew my speed reading skills. Instead, I was immediately struck by the lack of instruction. This app needs to be a lot more intuitive or provide an exercise tutorial. Also, the preset reading speeds are absurdly slow. It's a good idea, but poorly executed.

    Hard to get into

    Could provide clearer instructions.The exercises seem to be complicated for a beginner.

    No instructions

    It would be helpful to put instructions on this app. I am not sure of goals or measurements. Poor design.
