The speed reading software Best Reader's program of exercises is intended to cover a 10 to 15 day period of time. However, it is recommended to repeat the exercises from time to time in order to maintain the level of efficiency initially attained.
The system of speed reading exercises includes the performance of exercises with the speed reading software and the reading of additional literature. The time spent performing speed reading exercises on the computer and the time spent reading additional literature must be divided fifty-fifty. The aggregate amount of time spent studying must take one to two hours.

All computer exercises are divided into two groups:

  1. Exercises for development of speed reading skills.
  2. Exercises for development of the field of sight.

The balance of time between these two types of exercises must take into account the user's need to development both of these skills.


  1. At the beginning of this program of study, the eyes will quickly get tired and the exercises will seem to be tiresome. By the second lesson, these sensations will go away. Be patient and you'll achieve excellent results.

  2. Don't skip lessons! This can reduce your previous gains to zero.

By moving the pointer over the text, you can choose a place where you want to begin reading. After clicking the "Play" button, a black frame begins to move over the text. The width of the area allocated for reading depends on the width established in the "Width of reading field" box. The speed at which the allocated area moves over the text depends on the speed established in the "Speed Regulator" box. The program will play the text in its entirety according the speed and width set at the beginning of the process.

After the exercise is finished, the changes in the line will stop. Then a form with test questions appears on the screen, where the user must reproduce the last pair of numbers. After inputting four figures, the user can see the result of the test. If the answer is wrong, it is necessary either to reduce the width of the reading area or to reduce the speed. According to the results, the user will receive recommendations that appear in the status bar.
