  1. You can skim the chapter, paying attention to the subheadings.

  2. I read the paragraph/subparagraph headings. Sometimes I glance a tables, graphs, but just glance. Since those are important, it lends strong clues to the meaning of the text. If it is textbook type reading, I always look at the Chapter summary before reading. Sometimes I scan the text looking for key words.
