There are actually a number of different types of 'speed reading'. Wiki has a good article about them, when and how each is best used and such ;
Speed reading - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The one I took was similar to Evelyn Wood's Reading Dynamics. It is my usual way of reading (unless it's something purely for pleasure), but I use quite a few of the other methods, as well.
For anyone who has never done it, I would highly recommend learning. You just can't imagine how much time you will save and how much better you will actually learn.
So is anyone else here a speed reader?
I would imagine at least some of the methods are utilized by many people here, a skill acquired through having to pore through many words of info to get to what you actually need in the last 4 or 5 pages.
