THE SQ3R METHOD OF READING Textbooks are often read in the same way pleasure books are read--begin with the first page of the chapter and read to the end of the chapter, without stopping. While this method is fine for novels and mysteries, it is not likely to result in the level of understanding and retention needed for most textbooks. Using SQ3R provides a different method of reading textbooks that will most likely enhance understanding and retention of material. It's not a quicker way to read a chapter in a textbook but it is likely to reduce the amount of time one will need to spend studying the material immediately prior to the test. This is so because more time is spent actually understanding the chapter when it is read initially. Study time then becomes deepening your understanding of the material. Survey! Question! Read! Recite! Review! Before you read, S urvey the chapter: the title, headings, and subheadings captions under pictures, charts, graphs or maps review questions or teacher-made study guides introductory and concluding paragraphs summary Q uestion while you are surveying: Turn the title, headings, and/or subheadings into questions; Read questions at the end of the chapters or after each subheading; Ask yourself, "What did my instructor say about this chapter or subject when it was assigned?" Ask yourself, "What do I already know about this subject?" Note: If it is helpful to you, write out these questions for consideration. This variation is called SQW3R When you begin to R ead: Look for answers to the questions you first raised; Answer questions at the beginning or end of chapters or study guides Reread captions under pictures, graphs, etc. Note all the underlined, italicized, bold printed words or phrases Study graphic aids Reduce your speed for difficult passages

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
