College Reading Loads Can Be Heavy

iStock_000020473608_Small (1)Research indicates that a college freshman’s required reading can be as much as 500,000 words per week.

Inefficient readers frequently spend an excessive amount of time plowing slowly through their required reading – often with unsatisfactory results.

The highly efficient techniques and strategies taught each year to several thousand students in the Baldridge Program are designed to cope with demanding college reading loads.

These techniques save time, improve the quantity and quality of academic work; and, as a result, help students increase their self-confidence, develop a more positive attitude toward their studies, and meet faculty expectations more successfully.

The Baldridge Program takes only a short time to complete and has lifelong value. It has even been described as “a form of insurance on students’ educational investment.”
