Train yourself to become an ACTIVE READER - meaning that you read with the intent to capture as much information as possible. Do this exercise: Set your timer for 30 seconds. Read (from a book, magazine, etc.) until the timer stops. Write down every detail that you can remember. Repeat the process with the same passage you just read. Now notice how much additional detail you gleaned from the passage. This will hopefully change your mindset that you can get more out of each reading. Move through your book or magazine by repeating the above exercise 5 times every night. Improve your VOCABULARY: Here is a great website for this: Tip I give students: Don’t try to guess at words you don’t know. This is not much different than guessing the name of someone you don’t know. Instead, keep going over the words until you know them. Then take the quizzes available on the site.
