Comprehension Training System
Do you understand everything you read? Do you find yourself reading to the end of a paragraph, then you look up and have no idea what you just read? The problem is your comprehension.
According to The National Adult Literacy Survey, National Center for Education Statistics: Nearly 50% of the Americans surveyed cannot read well enough to find a single piece of information in a short publication, nor can they make low level inferences based on what they read
According to a report in the Journal of American Medicine, Emory University/UCLA study, reported in JAMA, 12-95, 41.6% of American patients could not comprehend directions for taking medication on an empty stomach. Another 26% were unable to understand information explaining when their next appointment was scheduled, and 50.5% could not understand a standard medical consent form.
According to ACT(The independent, not-for-profit organization American College Tests, Iowa, 2005), Only Half of ACT Test-Takers Have College-Ready Reading Comprehension Skills and they go on to say:
"Reading skills are critical to a student's success in college courses across the board, but particularly in the areas of social sciences and humanities. First-year college students who don't have adequate reading comprehension skills are likely to struggle in courses such as history, sociology, literature, business and others that require extensive reading.
About half of ACT-tested 2005 high school graduates lack at least some of these reading comprehension skills, based on ACT's new College Readiness Benchmark in reading. ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are scores that indicate a student has a high probability of success (with "success" defined by ACT as earning a "C" grade or higher) in specific entry-level college courses."
Many people do not even realize they have poor comprehension. They assume everyone reads the same as they do, or they read in a mechanical way that prevents them from retaining any information. Maybe you can read, but you do not remember hardly anything and you do not know what is causing the problem. If you read and do not understand, this video program will reveal new methods you can use to truly understand what you read, without the confusion, without re-reading, without the frustration.
Many schools once had a belief that you Got-It or you didn't when it came to comprehension. We now know that to be false. Comprehension can be taught. Unfortunately many people were never given the tools they needed to read properly. They do not know the fun and excitement of reading a novel because they were never shown how they could understand what they are reading.
A man sits in a fast food restaurant, eating his burger as he listens to the group in the booth behind him excitedly discussing a book they have all read. The man is confused. How can anyone be excited about reading a book? How can it be so much fun? When the man reads, he only experiences stress and frustration, not fun and enjoyment. He associates reading with feelings of inadequacy, feelings of stupidity, fear that he may be asked to read something for school or work, and embarrassment if he has to read in front of others. He is an intelligent person but he still does not read well. He cannot remember more than a few words when he has finished reading a page. Stories make no sense to him. He is missing a huge part of life because he does not know the right way to read. He learned to read in a mechanical way that processes the words and nothing more. He never learned the secret to reading comprehension and this leaves him shut out of not only a world of reading enjoyment, but employment opportunities, education opportunities, and sharing experiences with others who have good comprehension.
Tests and exams become a nightmare for those who have poor reading comprehension. A smart student can never be successful in school or at any job(other than ditch digger) if they cannot comprehend and understand questions on an exam. You and your children must have the skills and strategies needed to truly understand what you read.
You may understand some of what you read but that is never enough. Only understanding half of a news story, half of a business report, half of a book, can easily mislead you into thinking something is true which is in fact false, or if you only understand half of a business report, you may make a suggestion to your boss that is completely wrong. If you only understand half of a book, it will make little sense to you. You must improve your comprehension or you are putting yourself at a disadvantage throughout life.

You may have been a victim of a poor school system. In the past, many school systems and teachers believed that when it came to comprehension, you got-it or you didn't. Today we know this is simply false. Comprehension can be taught and improved even for adults.
The last thing a poor reader needs is a book explaining how to read. My program contains no filler, no long boring
stories, no obscure teaching theory. It is a carefully chosen, simple strategy approach that gives you the step by step tips you need to improve your reading. The classes are divided into easy to digest chunks with clear and simple objectives that yield immediate results.
This course benefits both good readers and poor readers. Good readers are only good at reading some material and when they run into more difficult material they freeze up. They do not know what to do. They have hit a brick wall because they are accustomed to reading and understanding certain material well, but when they encounter material they cannot as easily comprehend, it stops them cold. Then they have no idea how to fix the situation and the result is frustration and they eventually quit trying to read anything outside their zone of comfort.
Even good readers need to know the reading strategies that improve comprehension so they can apply them when they encounter more difficult material.
This course can be used by adults, children, and parents who want to help their children improve comprehension.
Many adults do not discover these methods until college and some not until retirement. A full life without being able to enjoy reading only because they did not know the simple techniques that make reading fun.
Today schools dump more and more work on students, while at the same time complaining that the student's reading ability is below normal. They then do nothing to fix the problem except dump more work on them. We need to fix the reading comprehension problem, then students can more easily deal with the work they are required to do.
Literacy is a major problem today. The cause is not dumb students. It is students who do not have the skills they need to understand what they are reading. They can sound out words and then look at you blankly when asked what they just read. They are taught a mechanical reading method that leaves them clueless about the meaning. Comprehension is the sword that can slay illiteracy problems.
This comprehension course is designed for both speed readers and non-speed readers and will benefit you.
Attention Parents :
This comprehension system also has special areas for parents who want to help their young children improve reading skills. You can learn how to teach reading comprehension to your child even before they start reading(which is the best time, before bad habits form). This will give them a great advantage when they begin learning the mechanics of reading. The parents section explains how you can lead your child to a love of books and reading. You can use techniques to build your child's curiosity which makes them want to read. Teaching reading skills to your child will affect them for the rest of their lives and especially in school. Comprehension strategies can be woven into your own reading with your child. You may be reading to your young child now, but are you reading the right way? Simply reading with a child is not enough. You must know how to do it so the child becomes involved and is educated not only about the story you are reading, but about how to improve reading skills.
Each lesson includes a video instructor explaining the methods you can use to improve your comprehension. The memory section includes an additional 10 lessons where the video instructor explains memory and gives you a list of shortcuts you can use to instantly improve your memory.

Memory Training System
The simple memory games you see in supermarket books or the silly computer games that make you think you are learning when you are really just clicking images do not improve your memory. The real techniques to improving memory so you can remember what you read, facts, names, dates, long numbers, lists, are contained in this special training course. This is a serious memory training course only for those who who want to improve their memory immediately.
Have you been introduced to someone and then you forget their name by end of the conversation. Do you forget their name by the time they shake your hand? Some simple memory tricks can teach you how to lock names into your memory forever.
There are two parts to your memory. Short Term and Long Term. Your short term memory takes in everything and if it is judged as unimportant, it is thrown out and forgotten. Only important events are passed into the long term memory. You can train your short term memory to selectively move information to your long term memory so you can recall it later. This is why people forget names, numbers, and important events. Their short term memory never passes the information to long term memory where it can be recalled later. You can learn simple methods that will trick your short term memory into moving important information to your long term memory so you can easily recall it when you need it.
If you want to improve your memory this is the easiest and fastest method. Discover methods of memory improvement that you can apply every day.
Each of the 10 lessons include an instructor revealing memory improvement methods that you can apply immediately.
