What should it bring?

As a student, I have to read a lot of scientific papers and basics, so the offer appeals to me. But I am skeptical:

If you read too fast, can there be a lot of hang around? And how should it be possible to re-train a commonplace like reading within two days?

Selbstversuch

Overview

But still I dare the self-experiment - punctually before the exam phase. Time is so precious. All the more important that I succeed!

The seminar room is spartan. So distraction should be avoided, I guess and am grateful that at least not on coffee and tea was dispensed.

The tables are U-shaped and apart from me, only Zivis take part in the advertising industry. You will receive a grant for the seminar and will use it as a preparation for your studies.

The sequence

Overview

The seminar leader, a smart young man, is reminiscent of a salesman, - in any case, he once attended a rhetoric seminar, because he wisely and cleverly, so I can follow him well. He has organized the course in blocks of one and a half hours, which are structured essentially the same. First, there is a little theory, then follows a practice phase.

We start with an inventory. A short reading and understanding test helps to determine how many words per minute (WpM) each individual participant creates in his usual reading speed. Subsequently follow-up questions about the text. This results in a percentage of the text comprehension, and the effective reading rate (ERR) is then calculated from both values. This test serves as a before / after comparison, on the other hand as the basis for the individual practice steps.

Efficient reading thanks to stopwatch?

Overview

The seminar leader promises that we will double our times. I am Sceptical. Especially because the next exercise is a bit suspicious. It is about improving the eye movement by driving your eyes across the lines without even having the right to understand something.

A so-called rate controller should support this process. It consists of a transparent plastic disc, under which a book can be placed, and a movable plastic slider that runs at a preset speed from top to bottom. The task is to read under the slider, so that the eyes are forced to orient themselves only forward and can not jump back.

Faster, better, more!

Overview

Time and again the speed is increased by the instructor. The new guideline value results from a reading and understanding test, which is carried out at the end of each block and thus in turn determines the speed, understanding and effective reading rates (ERR).

On the basis of these values, one can also observe one's own progress during the seminar. The only does not stop immediately, but forms after initial progress, a performance low. Everything is completely normal, it says in the theory section. But what about the overall success of the seminar?
