i understand that the point is to make you read faster, but the wpms that are way above 1000 like some are giving sounds a bit stretched to me.

Well the world record speed is at 25000+ WPM and later the person was questioned on the material in the book and he answered better than people who read it at their own 400 -+ speeds. The whole exercise point is to open paths in the brain that we usually do not use. the human brain has HUGE potential

I'm sure that THE human brain has potential. I was questioning whether YOURS did. Or did you just scan the lines? It takes more than three tries on an internet speed reading course to increase WPM to 1573. Maybe I'm just slow. but in three tries, I only had about a 5-6% increase in speed. And I still can't even remember what I read(something about the Wizard of Oz in there somewhere).

ok now im sure that anyone claiming 1k+ in just three tries is full of it. the other day i found out that my english teacher is also a speedreading teacher. she reads at 1500 wpm after years of classes and constant reading. no one here is going to hit 1k+ in three tries of an online demo.
