    What are my purchasing options?

    You now have the ability to get a taste of the course AT NO CHARGE by getting a FREE Sneak Peek! This gives you access to all of Module 4 which includes Abby’s favorite exercise called “Discipline Your Eyes” and a timed reading exercise.

    If you like the way the course is structured and you want more, you have three purchasing options: 7 Day Access or 90 Day Access. The 7 Day Access gives you full access to ALL the course content for 7 days.  For some, it can be a challenge to finish all 9 modules in 7 days but some people do it! Ideally, it’s best to get the course for 90 Days, providing you make time to take a module or two at a time and then practice what you learn in between. These options also give you time to go back and review what you’ve learned and to do the exercises again, if you like.

    Most people purchase this course because there is a pressing need, such as a large reading workload they need help with OR considering going back to school OR someone who is already in school and needs help managing all the reading. By giving you these different registration options, there’s a time frame version for everyone!

    How do I track my progress?
    This online reading course is designed to track your progress in two ways: 1) statistically through timed reading exercises and AUTOMATICALLY tracking your words per minute and comprehension and 2) habitually through a self-evaluation of habits which you complete at the beginning of the course and again at the end. The course is meant for you to achieve your personal best based on where you started. We strongly suggest that you not compare yourself to anyone but yourself.
    What topics does the online strategic reading course cover?

    These are the main topics of the nine modules. Once you are in the course modules, you can download a more detailed outline.
    Module 1: Getting Started
    Module 2: Working with Your Eyes and Brain
    Module 3: Reducing the Talking
    Module 4: Expanding Your Peripheral Vision
    Module 5: Securing Comprehension

    Is this course just a narrated PowerPoint presentation?

    Definitely NOT! This online reading course has been technologically designed as a sophisticated, highly interactive, and user-friendly course with useful instructional narration, animation, and graphics. There are many animated sections that physically demonstrate the strategies being shared. It has been designed on storyboards, not PowerPoint screens. It is narrated by speed reading expert and author Abby Marks Beale who teaches you the concepts through 17 timed reading exercises, several eye drills, and thoughtful and useful strategies.

    How long is the online reading course?

    The online reading course is delivered in nine modules, each taking between 30 and 45 minutes. You can expect to spend around five hours total taking the course though we don’t recommend you take it all one time! A few modules at a time is ideal allowing time in between to experiment with the concepts before coming back to learn more.

    What if I have a question or I don’t understand something?
    If you have a question or need clarification of something, you can “raise your hand” by clicking on the EMAIL button on the user interface and send your question via email directly to Abby. She will respond within 24 (max 48) hours.
