‘SQ3R’ stands for the five steps involved.

SKIM through the text quickly to get an overall impression.

QUESTION. If you are reading it for a particular purpose (for example, to answer an assignment), ask yourself how it helps. Also ask questions of the text: Who? What? Where? When? How?

READ. Read the text in a focused, and fairly speedy way.

REMEMBER. Test your memory – but don’t worry if you can’t remember much.

REVIEW. Read the text in more detail, taking notes. Use your own words.
