Ever wondered how fast you read and what is your comprehension /retention rate ?

Check this out and post your results :
http://www.readingsoft.com/

Mine is 273 words/minute with 83% comprehension/retention. Clearly, I'm an average reader.

Recommended reading speed for GMAT is 400 WPM with at least 80% comprehension/retention.

oh no :oops:
I read very slowly at the computer. And if not reading outloud or mumbling, then it's like i'm reading at a computer as well.

I am an average reader with about 82% retention.
I really have to improve :oops:

I am a average reader: 272WPM with 73% efficiency. I tried a lot to do visual reading but that lacks efficiency. :(

Any good input to increase upto 400WPM? Good site. Thanks
