Baby Boomers will remember Evelyn Wood as being synonymous with speed reading. As they were growing up the saw Wood’s advertised weekly on daytime television. The course is still available with a complete Evelyn Wood Reading Dynamics video course on CD for about $13.
But for those in Generation X or Generation Y online is more engaging than video or book. Iris reading has been a leader on online speed reading courses and offers their online speed reading class at Iris Reading for just $29 from Amazon.com.
The key to a successful speed reading course is that you learn a style that does not lower comprehension. Both of these courses deliver on that goal. Reading Dynamics has proven that over the years and Iris Reading also claims their program does not lower the reader’s comprehension rate.
The Amazon deal with Iris Reading is also a great gift idea as one can purchase up to ten vouchers per purchaser. Each user needs to start their class by February 8, 2014, and will have one full year to complete the class.
