MBA Admission 2015-16: Language Skills-Strategize to read fast

MBA aspirants are tested for their language skills in all MBA entrance tests hence, it is important to enhance them.  One of the skills to be honed is: Strategize to read fast 
 
In MBA entrance exams, you are required to read fast and grasp the ideas in order to answer questions accurately. You should read books, newspapers and magazines on a daily basis to improve your reading speed and accuracy. 
 
As the saying goes, “practice makes perfect,” only through regular practice can you hone your reading skills. The key to reading quickly is to grasp the whole sentence at a time instead of stopping at every word. 
 
Without reading every single word, you should be able to scan sentences for key words and ideas and connect them together.
 
After every paragraph, take a moment to digest and understand the facts. This way, you will be able to weave a coherent story in your head without analyzing every single word. 
 
Many students, while reading, either hear the words in their heads or subconsciously say them under their breath. This is called sub-vocalization, and you should aim to break this habit. 
 
Only when you break free of this habit of sub-vocalization will you be able to double or even triple your reading speed.
 
The little voice in our head slows down our reading speed; so, we should focus on the general idea or the essence of the story instead of stressing on each word.
 
Another strategy that students should follow is skimming the text before and after reading a passage. When you skim the text before reading the passage in depth, you will be introduced to the topic and idea.
 
And when you skim the text after reading the passage in depth, the concepts and ideas discussed in the passage will be reinforced. 
 
Speed reading is a skill that should be cultivated from a young age. Speed reading is not just about reading quickly but it is also about understanding the gist of passages quickly.
