Most students, from high school to college, know the difference between reading and skimming learning content material. Skimming, or speed-reading, is when your eyes sail along the lines dragging a fishnet for the important information in the learning content. When you come across something your brain registers as worth noting, your eyes slow down momentarily. At this point, the act ceases to be skimming and becomes actual reading. Your brain gathers the fish from the net and stores it in a bucket for future use.
Particularly in college, students are given exorbitant amounts of reading material and are expected to swallow big bites of learning content. Using speed-reading techniques, readers can tackle larger reading assignments and process the essential information while skimming over filler.
