  I will post my test results.  Please feel free to do so also if you wish.

  I read, according to the results, 12% slower, than the national average, but got all the comprehension answers correct..I have to admit going back for a few seconds to be sure and remember the facts..
I usually skip read, and this did not allow it.  I do have a difficult eyesite, which makes me a bit slower.. All in all I was happy
with my results...

     Beautiful mind

I'm afraid I can't play, unfortunately.  With my godforsaken slow dial-up connection, it has now taken 8 full minutes since I clicked on the "Start Reading" button timer, and the page still hasn't loaded for me to start reading.

Oh well.

I do have a certification in a speed reading course, though, which tests both speed and comprehension.  Passed with flying colors.  I hardly ever use this technique cause I've usually got all the time in the world to read stuff.  But it's good to know I can turn it on whenever I want.

10 minutes now, still no page...
Dawn is coming,
Open your eyes...
