Read! Read! Read!
One of the greatest gifts my parents gave me was a love of reading. In our home, reading was a part of life too vital to be ignored or forgotten. While I was a college student, this love of reading provided me with a huge advantage in that my need to read made it easier to comprehend the materials I read in class. The added bonus was that being able to read a 500 page novel in a day made it easy to read a hundred pages of course text. For those of you wondering how you can excel in classes and get through reading material quicker and with a better understanding of the material, all you have to do is READ! READ! READ!
