I have a book on how to write poetry. It's about 400-500 pages. I've gave it 3-4 layers of activation and made a mind map on an app. I was able to fill in a lot on the mind map. But I want a greater understanding of the topic.

The author's train of thoughts is titled in bold paragraph, a sentence supporting the title, than a few examples.
I get into reading pass the supporting sentence , to further supporting sentences, that reiterate the titles and first sentence, and in depth at times reading shorter examples (poems).

This takes a while. How do I make sure to get out of a chapter in under 10 minutes?


I did so many layers and I feel as if there's nothing more to be learned while also wanting to have full memorization and also feeling as if there's no more information I want from the book.



How do I trust I have all the information I need?


I thought this would go better as I photoread a 200-300 page book and activated it in about 90 minutes. But I did have a reason for activating , the author wanted me to review his book.

Maybe that was the reason?

Ok alot of my questions were answered here.

https://forums.learningstrategies.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=87712#Post87712


But the poetry book has exercises with different levels so when you go through reading the book 1-3 times you'll do the exercises starting with level 1 up to level 3.

How do I deal with that?

If the exercises start with a question, super read and dip to find the answers. Feel free to add relevant information to you mind map if you have already started one. Regarding a few comments you made in your first post.... full memorization of a book is an unreasonable goal/expectation. Trusting that you have the information you need is an issue if you use traditional reading too. PhotoReading the text gives you the extra boost by exposing all the data to your inner mind.
