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.
When is the online reading course available?
The course is available online and on demand at your convenience 24/7. This means you can take the course anytime YOU have time, day or night!
What are my purchasing options?
You now have the ability to get a taste of the course AT NO CHARGE by getting the FREE Reading Tune Up which is now available to you for an entire year! 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, 90 Day Access or 365 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 either 90 Days or 365 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!

Start the Course NOW!
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 FREE Reading Tune Up). 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 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 power point screens. It is narrated by sp0eed reading expert and author Abby Marks Beale where she teaches you the concepts through 17 timed reading exercises, several eye drills and thoughtful and useful strategies.
Who teaches the course?
This online reading course was created, developed and taught by Speed Reading Expert and Author Abby Marks Beale. Abby has taught speed reading to busy people in Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, government agencies, associations, colleges and schools for over 30 years. She is the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Speed Reading, 10 Days to Faster Reading and a college level study skills text book Success Skills: Strategies for Study and Lifelong Learning.
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.
What if I don’t want to listen to the narration?
Abby narrates the entire course though the transcript of the narration is available to read on-screen instead. You can mute the audio to read the narration. Hearing impaired users will find this feature very useful.
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.

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 reading course. We are not remedial reading specialists, rather developmental reading specialists, so we do not guarantee success with every type of reader. However, we have shared this content with people with mild dyslexia and other undiagnosed reading disabilities and most find their reading skills improve. If you decide to take the online reading course and find it doesn’t work for you, you can contact us for a full refund.
What happens after I finish the course?
Once you choose to “Finish” the nine modules (versus Return to Menu to keep working) AND have completed the Course Introduction, all of The Online Course and the Follow-Ups/Course Survey, we will then begin to send you one short email a week for just eight weeks that will remind you about an important aspect of the online reading course. Since repetition over time is the key to learning, this follow up communication can help you solidify the concepts you learned.
You will also have access to your Certificate of Completion at this time as well.
Is there a Money Back Guarantee?
If you honestly have not experienced ANY improvement in your reading speed, concentration, comprehension OR retention after spending a minimum of five hours on the course, completing ALL 9 modules of The Online Course and ALL of the 17 timed reading exercises, contact us within 15 days of your course expiration to request a refund. Refunds are happily given to those who have completed the course as required above AND who have engaged with the online instructor through the EMAIL button on the course interface to get personal guidance.
