Pre-Reading Decisions
What Should I Do First?

Do you just open your book and start reading?
Do you just plow on, page after page, whether you understand or not?

Making a few decisions before you begin reading can help.

1. I have pages to read.


2. The material seems
    (Look through the chapter or section to find out.)


3. The whole assignment should take about min./hours.
    (Be realistic.)


4. It would be reasonable to break the reading up into sessions.


I have minutes to spend on this assignment. My goal is to read pages.
