First of all find a place
where you are comfortable and set yourself realistic targets (I will
read 1 chapter or 10 pages NOT the whole book in 1 hour). Monitor your
progress and review your targets as you read, reset them as you
progress. Use a dictionary or glossary to look up words you dont
understand or are unsure of.
Reading enables you to develop an understanding of the subject, add
new concepts, understand explanations. It enables you to build mental
models and follow techniques employed. Reading helps you incorporate
new information along with that which you already have.
READING helps you THINK about IDEAS and REORDER them.
You do not need to remember everything you read. As you read, write
things down. It is what you understand that is important. Note the
general points of the information, the facts which the text indicates
are important. You want to be able to think using the concepts and
ideas of the text.
