What is optimized speed reading
Speed Reading is a method that consists in reading the whole text, word-by-word or in groups of adjoining words at a speed higher than 500 words per minute (wps). The usual reading speed is about 250 wps. Optimized speed reading starts at 900-1000 wps.
Read and discover in this article what are the differences between common reading, fast reading and optimized fast reading. What is characteristic of these three ways to read is how it unfolds. Each of us has his own way of reading and this is kept unchanged whether we read normally, quickly or quickly optimized. What differs are the parameters we read: reading speed and also memory and understanding.
1. Common reading is done at a speed of approximately 250-300 wpm and is a slow reading, with repeated returnings on the text, to understand its meaning. The memory capacity is about 60%.
2. Fast reading is done at reading speeds between 500 and 900 wpm. The storage capacity is about 70%. Texting is faster and text returns are rare but still necessary. Geting into this area of reading it is only through training or intensive reading.
3. Optimized speed reading is done with reading speeds ranging from 900-1000 wpm. The storage capacity is about 80% and can be improved by increasing the reading speed to 2000 wpm. Reading is continuous in this case and the returns to the text are completely removed. There are some features specific ONLY for optimized fast reading:
