Read With Your Brain Switched On

If you've ever found yourself moving your eyes over the words of the text but found your thoughts were off somewhere else, you'll know how much time rereading long passages of text consumes.

Reading more actively (that is, thoughtfully) can make reading more effective and efficient.

Read with the aim of understanding and relating the ideas of the text to your existing knowledge, previous readings, lecture material, and the goals of the course.

As you read along, summarize main ideas, interpret the themes of the reading, think critically, and try to state the material in your own words.

It isn't necessary to memorize everything written in the text. Instead, focus on reading selectively, extracting information that is relevant to your course and your purpose as a reader.
