Reading Mistakes in some Examinations can cost you a whole year. Learn to study the right way; avoid mistakes that would make you fail.
After careful observation and research, I have come up with mistakes readers make while reading and solutions. The mistakes are:
1. Reading without purpose:
Knowing your goal ahead of time can help you focus on the right material and use the right strategies for learning it. Sometimes you just study because you see your follow mates reading, this is a mistake you have ought to avoid!
Ensure that you know why you are reading, you must understand key concept in what you are reading.
2. Don’t Skip Parts
Many students are guilty of skipping sentences, paragraphs and topics that seems difficult for them to understand.
To study effectively and pass your examination, you must not underate any sentence or paragraph. The part you skipped may be the number one question in the test.
3. Doing all your reading at once.

They are student who feel and think that reading the entire book at once is enough, never you make this reading mistake!
Trying to read a book at once is like trying to climb Mount Everest in one day… Impossible!
Reading is a stage by stage process that requires your comprehensive and understanding skills to manipulate itself.
So start your reading today by simply just reading a single topic one at a time
4. Reading After Losing Concentration
It is very good to study for long hours without losing concentration. But if you have already lost concentration, no need to continue reading since it may not be effective anymore.
When you lose focus, stop reading temporarily, take some minutes break so that your brain can recover quickly. Don’t fail to drink plenty of water when studying.
5. Passive Reading
Some group of students: “ok! Let me just read” This is mindset of students who read passively.
To truly learn from what you’re reading, you need to interact with the text. Take notes, jot down questions, find connections among different ideas, map ideas out, compare notes with a friend. Now this is what I call active reading!
