9 a.m. -12:30 p.m. OR 1:30 p.m.-5 p.m.
Newark campus

Call 800.964.8888 to register.

The Speed Reading and Study Strategies course will increase your effectiveness as a reader and a student, and as a result, you will be better equipped to manage the competing demands on your time.

When you complete this course, you will be able to read your textbooks twice as fast. In easier reading materials, like most nonfiction books, novels, and journal articles, you will read three times faster. You will understand and retain information better, 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 leading universities and colleges for over 35 years.

As a course participant, you will receive free lifetime repeat privileges, honored at any of the universities or colleges that offer the program. At each stage of your school or work career, the type of material you need to read may change or become more difficult.
