Speed reading, when used in an effective manner, can allow you to cover huge amounts of information with high recall in a much shorter time than the average reader, however being able to run through great amounts of material does have its shortcomings. There a few situations where speed reading is not the most effective way to learn and they should be noted.

Foreign Language - Obviously if you are unable to understand something normally, you have no chance of understanding it at a faster rate. If you do have a grasp of the language and can read in that language at a normal rate, then speed reading should not be a problem. The problem arises when there is a lack of understanding of the proper translations that can make you not able to speed read it. Common sense, if you can't read it normally you most likely can't read through it at a great speed.

Math Concepts - Math Formulas are meant to help you understand the relationship between different numbers and variables. Of course you can read quickly over the texts that accompany the formulas, but it is best to slow down and learn those at a slower speed

Poetry - After taking many years of English classes, it turns out to get the full effect of poetry, it can't be rushed. Poets often write their words with hidden meanings that need extrapolations and interpretations, or something like that. Poetry takes time to be absorbed, so to get the full enjoyment and experience should not be read at your accelerated rate.

Beyond Your Limits - Anything from molecular biology, to advanced physics, to micro-engineering, if you only understand half of the words on a page, it shouldn't be read at the fast rate. While you will pick up some of the information , you will most likely be missing out on a few key elements. Speed reading works best when your reading material is in a language you can understand.

Tips For Shopping Online

1. When shopping online, make sure the site you happen to be on starts with "https". The "S" implies that the site is secure, which entails that one could safely enter your personal information without having to be worried about identity theft. When a site lacks the "S" in it, you may want to avoid using it.

2. Many online shopping sites offer discounts if you use a "discount code". These codes are often found online simply by entering the words "coupon code" along with the manufacturer or name of the website you will be buying from. They might offer a percentage off or free shipping simply by entering within a simple code which can be easily found by investing a few minutes looking for it.

3. Online shopping is a great way to find items that are out of stock at your local store. For instance, if you are unable to find a certain size of jeans at the store near you, you can look on the store's website and learn if they are offered to be shipped to you.

4. Never give out your Social Security number to an online merchant. This number is not required for placing orders online. Giving an online store your Social Security number can help them use your personal and personal information to steal your identity. To prevent that, if you carry on an online store site and see that being a requirement, tend not to buy everything from them and shop elsewhere.

5. If you want to buy books online, you'll obtain a better deal if you get them used. Based on the condition you receive them in, you may just end up paying a few cents plus shipping. Make sure you read through the description of the book to see if you can find any damages you should be aware of.
