Offered on Campus this FallWe encourage you to enroll in the Speed Reading and Study Strategies program offered through the Rutgers University Division of Continuing Studies. In just two weekends this course can increase your effectiveness as a reader and a student. As a result, you will be better equipped to manage the competing demands on your time.
In this course, the average student doubles reading speed in difficult material, such as textbooks. In easier reading, such as most non-fiction books, novels, and journal articles, you can learn to read even faster. Comprehension, concentration, and retention techniques will help you to remember more and cut down on rereading, even while reading at these higher speeds. In addition, you will be able to prepare for tests efficiently, without extensive rereading.
Instruction for this course is provided by the Institute of Reading Development. The Institute has provided instruction for Rutgers University for the past 12 years, and also teaches for many other leading universities and colleges.

Program dates for session one are September 20, 21, 27 & 28 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.-5 p.m. Program dates for session two are October 11, 12, 18 & 19 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.-5 p.m. Alternate dates are available at Rutgers University's Camden Campus and Newark Campus.
