Skimming - The art of Reading

Skimming refers to the process of quickly identifying the main ideas within a passage to get an overall impression of its content. Skimming is done at a speed three to four times faster than normal reading. People often skim when they have lots of material to read in in a limited amount of time. You can also skim when you want to see if an article is relevant to your research.

>>Tips for Better Skimming
*when skimming for the information, you glance at or read a document or report quickly, noting only the main points.
*some people read the first and last paragraphs using headings, summaries and other organisers as they move down the page or screen.
*read the headings, sub-headings and illustrations
*when you are seeking for specific information, consider reading the first sentence of each paragraph rather than reading for comprehension
*skimming works well for finding dates as well as names of people and places. It is also useful for reviewing graphs, tables, and charts.
*Take note of any italicised or boldfaced words or phrases.

Below is the example of applying skimming during reading process :
