basic college reading

find the mainMyth 1: You only need to read the material once. Textbooks are packed with
too much information to understand, much less retain, in one reading
session. This is particularly true if the information is new and unfamiliar.
Most students who can read and retain information from a textbook in
just one session usually have some prior knowledge about the subject.
Rereading allows you to build up information in layers of understanding.
Developing a specific purpose each time you read the material will aid
you. For example, read the first time to formulate questions about the material,
read the second time to find and record the answers, and read again
to review and reinforce what you have learned. Rereading material builds
familiarity, understanding, and knowledge.
