Would it be ok to use audible in the car. Because your focus would be on the road and on driving and I wonder I how much it would decrease comprehension to assume if it’s worth listening to?

Speed reading works for you if you use the methods that match your situation eg prefered sensory mode, level of training in speed reading and other relevant factors! "Triple Your Reading Speed: The Proven Self-Study Plan" by Wade E. Cutler

I'm skeptical. On one hand, I understand the science and how it's impossible to read thousands of words per minute. But the sales pitch for audible - a way to enjoy a book faster without speed reading - just doesn't sell. Busting speed reading "myths" and then a sales pitch for audible. You're better off scrapping this video, and redoing it with the angle that reading faster leads to less retention and comprehension, and a solution to getting a book done while still getting laundry done, making breakfast, and working out is audible. You did the sales pitch all wrong, my man.

thanks for the feedback bud. the video is focused on speed reading - audible sponsoring it was a good fit but didn't change the video message

One factor that I’ve personally found vitally important for reading comprehension is focused attention. I can read at 200 wpm, but if I’m distracted my comprehension and recall will be nil—whereas, when I’m focused I can up that to 400-500 wpm and have excellent recall/comprehension. Note: focused attention is mentally taxing, so taking breaks (pomodero technique) is also important!

This video seemed interesting but the problem is that it’s a lot of blabla 😭 go to the point
You have covered up so much misconceptions from other videos about speed reading, I find the most important part is using a pacer. Great video, got to the point, with scientific evidence!

Saying something is not possible is not proof. A lot of these denunciations are straw man arguments showing a lack of understanding of speed reading techniques. At least he got some of the terms right.

Where does the idea that regression increases comprehension? Aren't you increasing reading time rather than reducing it? Is this based on some white paper or book somewhere? The reason I ask is because I've read that one is supposed to eliminate regression and increase comprehension at the same time.
J. Kai Simmons (5 months ago)
Solid video Dr. Jubbal. Some of these techniques were explained in the amazing book, "the four hour workweek", but you did a much better job at explaining the concepts and how to apply them to different situations. THANKS!

Can anybody explain why I can remember a Stephen King novel that I read years ago down to the most minute detail yet unable to remember a textbook I read a week ago? Is it the layout of text maybe in story form? I am beginning to think maybe textbooks should take a different approach of how they organize information. Perhaps detailing gluconeogensis as a story as opposed to a step by step process. Anybody else have this experience?

Notice how you can remember the lyrics of your favourite songs because you enjoy them. You remembered the novel because it may have been somewhat enjoyable. Making stories and songs on a subject is a very very very very effective way to learn

I helped out fellow students when it came to difficult academic text. I achieved great results in reading slowly and by using color pencils, noticing key words and underlining at most three important words or lines per page. On the other hand I read two volumes of „Fire and Ice” in an afternoon by just reading important verbs, nouns and names, leaving out most descriptions. As a former student of literature it was easy to fill out any gaps. It’s important to have expectations beforehand, as reading the actual text or study is directly filling into a web of knowledge you already have.

Love the video. I have a question about one of your first videos where you talked about studying, and one of your tips was to summarize notes sheets, which I thought was a great idea. Do you recommend doing this as a daily thing after each class, or wait until a little before the test and summarize all of your notes from that general topic? Thanks, and keep up the great videos.
Asher (7 months ago)
Okay I'll start doing that! Thanks so much again :)

If you can do the first condensation within a day that’s best. Can condense again later as you review
Romeo Mariano (7 months ago)
It is easier and faster to read technical works like research articles and medical textbooks if you have created a large knowledge tree or Schema of the subject in your mind. This means you have experience or already an extensive understanding of the material. If you are a newbie, then it is tough sledding since you don’t have a Schema yet. This is why attending physicians can read articles far faster than med students. I usually go through hundreds of articles at a sitting. With an extensive Schema, you just need to focus on what is important for you in the article. For example, on the use of Ketamine for depression, I focus on the outcome of studies, the mechanisms of action, the route and dose, the adverse effects, the pharmacology, etc. because I am interested in clinically applying it for certain patients. As another example, with experience an internist friend only needs to pay attention to 3 symptoms to tell if a person is having a heart attack. He doesn’t need to do a whole physical exam. The quality of the Schema one builds will determine the quality of physician.
Med School Insiders (7 months ago)
Good point about background knowledge facilitating more rapid consumption of new information. Valid, but as I stated in the video, reading more is a slow process that will increase speed slowly and gradually. I see this as a side benefit of extensive study in a subject area, but a terribly ineffective method if someone simply wants to improve reading speed. These improvements will come with time as the individual focuses their study in a certain topic

What a surprise: sponsored by audible and the best way to speed reading is to listen to audiobooks 🎉 wow, and so many just don’t get it what you are doing: marketing
Med School Insiders (7 months ago)
Audiobooks are simply one tool to use. I wouldn’t personally use an audiobook version of a textbook, for example. Each technique has its merits. Thanks for watching and hope you learned something about reading faster!

I want to be a doctor soon but i don't even understand science subject. What should i do?
nobody (6 months ago)
You have plenty of time before you become a doctor. What I would recommend is studying and asking questions about the subject. Ask yourself which part of science confuses you and why? Look at YouTube for explanations, search specific topics on the internet. There are plenty are resources available to help you gain a bit of understanding on what you may be struggling in.

Brilliant video! I tried speed reading before, but I've found that making the time for reading is superior to trying to squeeze in 10 minutes of "speed reading".

Martin (7 months ago)
So the only way to read something faster is by having the audio for it and speed that up so the linguistic part is covered?
Martin (7 months ago)
I personally expect that in general, listening to something and comprehend it is easier than reading something and comprehend it.
Med School Insiders (7 months ago)
Not exactly. The linguistic part is your understanding of the language, not having to hear it out loud. Even if you were listening to audio of complex and intricate topics, you would have to slow down to fully comprehend it

I'm not a med guy but this channel is gold. I applied this stuff to a machine learning class and absolutely aced it. A proper learning schedule, regular test exams, flash cards + anki image occlusion and there is no material you cannot conquer. This is coming from someone who previously had no clue how to properly learn!
