First of all, please don’t feel like you have to read everything from cover to cover. One of the keys to reading strategically is knowing there are different reading strategies to use for different reading purposes. This video explains this succinctly.
As you can see, using effective reading strategies can help you:
- save time
- prepare for assignments and exams
- keep up with weekly readings, and
- learn and revise your unit’s content.
Being an effective reader saves you time, and brings you closer to those higher marks and success rates in exams. Book into a Library workshop via the Library Class Booking System (search for ‘reading’ to find relevant workshops), or you can chat to a Learning skills adviser at your Library’s Research & Learning Point if you’re not sure where to start.
