Tips from DUSS
How to Preread
You would not go on a trip without having some sense of how to get where you want to go. Without that knowledge, you would very likely get lost. The same applies to reading. Don’t just jump into a textbook chapter and begin reading without having some sense of where the chapter will take you. Prereading the chapter before reading will help you to improve your comprehension, retention, and speed as you read.
