Hello if you're reading this,

Can I photoread a chemistry book, by that I mean read it for the first time. For example, I bought a brand new chemistry text with formulaes and hard concepts to understand, if I photoread it, will I be able to understand it fully after activation?

How can I photoread a pdf? Do I spend 2 seconds looking at the page then change?

Another question, what if I photoread a book which may have word that I do not understand, will I still be able to understand it.
Thanks for reading, apologies for any grammatical errors in what i wrote.

Just encountered another issue,

Im struggling with the purpose, when I first photoread my first book, the one with Paul Scheele in his self study audio, I didnt photoread it well, my purpose was " how to photoread", this felt like a very vague purpose, can someone give me a good purpose as an example for that book.

Thanks once again!

Sorry, another question, once i've photoread, when activating, i look for answers to my purpose, do I forget everything else except my answers to my purpose? If so, why shouldnt we just go on google when we find a purpose and question and search it up?

Im a newbie, thanks again!

Anything you can read you can PhotoRead. If you're new to PhotoReading I recommend learning the system first. Don't let that stop you from PhotoReading the textbook daily for a while.

Electronic PhotoReading, tap to turn the page at a steady rate. On a computer you can set Acrobat reader to advance the pages hands free. See the preferences.

When you read for meaning you can understand some new word easily enough. In specialist fields I recommend checking the glossary. In fact if the book has a glossary, I recommend activating that first even though it's usually at the end of the book. Learn the authors meaning of the words helps. Also use a dictionary if you find words that stump you.

Your purpose, how to PhotoRead was incomplete. How to PhotoRead is a statement or question it's not a purpose in itself. A purpose answers, why you're learning PhotoReading. How to PhotoRead is an activation question, a broad one (hint: follow the first Ensteins for that purpose).

Why are you learning to PhotoRead... so that I can.....

Activation; consider what you need to know, ask questions to get answers to that.

Could you enter your purpose into a google search and get answers that way? Yes, I recommend you now how to PhotoRead because google will provide 100s of pages with possible answers and experience has shown me that the best are not always top of the page and my even be on the second or third page of the search results. If you start reading all those pages the old fashioned way you'll be spending more time reading not less. Also textbooks assigned are usually the source used by those grading your papers. If you want to pass the grade, have the know the material the lecturer / instructor, is familiar with.

Your purpose is like the launching pad, take aim and go. To move to your destination you need formulate questions that help you steer your course to the destination.

Purpose can be many for one book. Your purpose and and activation questions can be broad or focused. Ones first purpose for the PhotoReading book can be to learn the how to PhotoRead. Then the purpose could be to understand the 5 steps, then a purpose could be to refine each step.

And the best step to focus on is the first step.

Thank you for your answer.
I have no more doubts about Photoreading, but just have questions regarding the courses limit.
Is it possible to have more than 1 purpose at once when activating?
If I photoread and i find answers to my purpose, will I be able to remember all the other information not part of my purpose? Also when Peter, the guy from the informercial who read the story and was tested, what was his purpose? Like he didnt even know what he was gonna read or had interest in it, well that's what I assumed.

Once again thank you very much, really kind of you for answering.

Yes it is possible and you can count on it if you're using textbooks for a course, to have more than one purpose.

Focus on one purpose at a time. When finished look at the next one. You may activate the same pages again, that's cool. It will probably be faster.

To remember, mind map The working memory can only remember 7 plus or minus 2 bits of information a second. It requires forgetting so you can think of other things. If you want to remember something you have to give yourself a way of remembering. Mind mapping is a good way of creating stronger neural connections that help you to remember.

Pete's purpose was to be able to answer the questions the people had for him or to see what he could do. He prepared himself by PhotoReading lots of books in the weeks before and didn't care if he failed it was an experiment to see what he could do.

Thanks for your help.

Say I have 2 text books, one is biology and the other is chemistry, each 300 pages long, how long will it take me to photoread them and have complete comprehension of all my purposes. I'm hoping to finish my college work early, then I can start my first job part-time job. What I have planned is that I photoread each daily for 1 month to have good comprehension and then start my part-time job + do exam papers. What do think of that? How much will it improve my grades in school if i master photoreading, im a B-A grade student already but it takes alot of effort, I have to revise continuosly throughout the year, will photoreading decrease the time spent drastically?

Thank you once again, sorry to bother you with so many questions.

To PhotoRead about 2.5 minute. To have complete comprehension. Activate.

How long does it take you normally?
