1Read only the first sentence of a paragraph
Good writers begin each paragraph with a key statement that tells you what that paragraph is about. By reading only the first sentence, you can determine if the paragraph has information you need to know.
If you're reading literature, this still applies, but know that if you skip the rest of the paragraph, you may miss details that enrich the story. When the language in literature is artful, I would choose to read every word.
2Skip to the last sentence of the paragraph直接跳到每段的最后一句话
The last sentence in a paragraph should also contain clues for you about the importance of the material covered. The last sentence often serves two functions -- it wraps up the thought expressed and provides a connection to the nextparagraph.
When you have skimmed first and last sentences and determined the whole paragraph is worth reading, you still don't need to read every word. Move your eyes quickly over each line and look for phrases and key words. Your mind will automatically fill in the words between.
4Ignore the little words忽略小词
Ignore the little words like it, to, a, an, and, be -- you know the ones. You don't need them. Your brain will see these little words without acknowledgment.
忽略像it, to, a, an, and, be这样的小词，你懂得。你并不需要它们，因为你的大脑不需要确认就能明白这些词。
5Look for key points寻找要点
Look for key points while you're reading for phrases. You are probably already aware of the key words in the subject you're studying. They pop out at you. Spend a little more time with the material around those key points.
6Mark key thoughts in the margins在页边标出重要的观点
I know you were taught not to write in your books, and some books should be kept pristine, but a textbook is for studying. If the book is yours, mark key thoughts in the margins. If it makes you feel better, use a pencil. Even better, buy a packet of those little sticky tabs and slap one on the page with a short note.
When it's time to review, simply read through your tabs.
If you're renting your textbooks, make sure you understand the rules, or you may have bought yourself a book.
7Take notes for practice tests为模拟考试而记笔记
Take notes for writing your own practice tests. When you read something you know will show up on a test, write it down in the form of a question. Note the page number beside it so you can check your answers if necessary.
8Read with good posture以一个舒服的姿势进行阅读
Reading with good posture helps you read longer and stay awake longer. If you're slumped over, your body is working extra hard to breathe and do all the other automatic things it does without your conscious help. Give your body a break. Sit in a healthy way and you will be able to study longer.
As much as I love to read in bed, it puts me to sleep. If reading puts you to sleep, too, read sitting up. 我很喜欢在床上读书，但这样会让我睡着。如果阅读也让你犯困，你还是坐直了读吧。
9Practice, practice, practice
Reading fast takes practice. Try it when you are not pressured with a deadline. Practice when you're reading the news or browsing online. Just like music lessons or learning a new language, practice makes all the difference. Pretty soon you'll be reading faster without even realizing it.
