Rev It Up Reading Review and Giveaway (Tomoson)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I reviewed Rev It Up Reading, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Rev It Up Reading teaches you to not only, read faster, but improve comprehension as well. I love to read books and magazines, but usually I forget what I read immediately after. I mostly read to read, and not read for comprehension, unless it's something I really need to know.

About the course

The course consists of 9 modules, which teaches speed reading and comprehension. The course also has an online manual, which is also printable. Another great printable is the  personal progress chart, which tracks:
  • Your reading strategy used for each assignment
  • Whether you read on screen on or on print
  • Comprehension percentage
  • Words per minute
  • Your thoughts (comments) on each activity. 
  • Beginning words per minute and comprehension
  • Ending words per minute and comprehension
The manual also provides a self-evaluation of reading habits. You take the evaluation at the beginning of the course and at the end of the course. You also can create a beginning and end personal statement. 

The course lasts 90 days and cosets $199 dollars. 

Reading Strategies 

  • White card method.
  • Using Keywords
  • Phrasing
  • Two finger pull
  • Right side pull
  • Left side pull
  • Underline
  • Pull down center

My Review

One of the first things, I did, was print off the manual to follow along. Now, the online course and guide do not follow each other. The online guide will tell you when to consult the manual. 

The courses are presented in a video format. You learn each module, then complete the reading exercises. The module also tests you on your comprehension. Once you complete each module, you can note your comprehension (if applicable) and your words per minute on the progress sheet. 

During the first assignment, I had 265 words per minute and 90% comprehension. On lesson 2, the white card method, I had 460 wpm and 520 wpm on the assignments. 

I am not done with the course yet. I am on Lesson 3. I hope to improve for reading during book reviews and school assignments.
