2

Survey

We also call this prereading. Usually we skim or scan the content before we read it to prepare our mind for new information.

3

Question

Before reading the text we can ask ourselves why we are trying to read it “what is in it for me”. Clear motivation improves reading process. Getting to the content from different perspectives improves our benefit. Typically we merge this step with prereading. Scanning-questioning-skimming is a good way to filter out what articles we want to read and how much effort to allocate for each.

4

Read

Clear your mind and just read the content. When reading, you maximize the benefit of previous SQ steps, do not reread and dwell in irrelevant details.

5

Recall

We add details to the markers AFTER reading each paragraph. This is our way to insure we recall the paragraph. During training we first make sure to read-recall several times until we get 100% retention, only after several weeks we trust the brain to recall automatically.

6

Review

Analyze the content from multiple perspectives. See what you learned and try to connect it to previous knowledge. Personally probably I spend more time on this step than all previous steps taken together. If you do not review the article properly, it is hard to understand it and occasionally you will need to revisit it over and over.
