What are my purchasing options?

With the updated version, you now have the ability to try the course for one day AT NO CHARGE by getting the One Day Access which is good from midnight to midnight. This gives you the first three modules where you really get to know if this course is for you. Then if you are in a hurry to learn the rest of the content, you can get the 7 Day Access. It’s a challenge to finish all 9 modules in 7 days but some people do it! Ideally, it’s best to get the course for either 90 Days or 365 Days, providing you 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.

I understand the course is based on Abby’s book 10 Days to Faster Reading. How do I get a copy?

The book 10 Days to Faster Reading has been made into an eBook especially for this course. It is available for you when you register for the course (all versions except the One Day Access). It is located as an Adobe PDF in the Resources section on the top right of the user interface. Many parts of this book have been incorporated into the course but you will have it all to keep for future use. You can print it if you like (122 pages) and/or download it to your device to keep for reference.

What if I already own a print version?

If you already own a print version of 10 Days to Faster Reading, you can use it; however, the page references in the online course correspond to the pages of the eBook, not the print version. If you get stuck, you can email the instructor for page clarification.

Is this course just a narrated PowerPoint presentation?

Definitely NOT! This online strategic 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 taught. It has been designed on storyboards, not power point screens. It is narrated by Abby Marks Beale where she teaches you the concepts through 17 timed reading exercises, several eye drills and thoughtful and useful strategies.

How do I track my progress?

Can people with reading disabilities take this course?

We believe anyone who knows how to read can benefit from the strategies presented in this online strategic reading course.
