Use the time you spend reading more effectively. This workshop teaches you such techniques as active reading and knowing when to skim and when to read deeply. It will addresses matters of comprehension and retention.
How to decide if you need to scan, skim, or read the document:
SCAN if you are looking for only one detail or the main idea.
SKIM if you need to read quickly for key words and sentences in order to get a general idea
READ (and reread) if you need to understand all or most of the text.
