and comprehend more!
For over seven years, I had the privilege of teaching adult students who were returning to college. Many of them had been out of school for many years. However, due to changes in the job market, their personal lives, or their understanding of who they were, they decided to pursue a college degree. Most of the students were over thirty years old. They had jobs, families, volunteer responsibilities, and hobbies. They were busy.
But, they were also motivated. I always started each term with an informal survey asking students just how busy they were. Several hundred students later, I discovered that they were busier than they thought. The average student was committed to 26.3 hours of activity per day before adding school. This was a recipe for disaster. Most college classes require two hours of work outside class for every hour spent in class. This group needed some help maximizing their efficiency. That’s when I started teaching the QuickRead process. I developed it while I was a student with a pile of books to read and very little discretionary time.
Until today, this process has been spreading by word of mouth. I taught it to several hundred students. They taught it to their friends. Now, it’s in a FREE ebook you can download. It’s short and to the point. I figured it shouldn’t take a long time to explain how to save time. The process takes some basic elements of adult learning strategy and weaves it with what I know about how authors work. In the end, it’s a proven strategy that will help you move quickly through books, articles, reports, magazines, and online resources.
