Take this free speed reading test to measure your reading speed and reading compehension

Do you know how many words per minute (WPM) you can read at, while maintaining good reading compehension?

Reading has always been one of the best ways to consume information and learn (at least until mind reading becomes reality). Bill Gates reads 50 books a year, at about 750 WPM (words per minute) with 90% comprehension, and attributes much of his success to reading. Before you start practicing to read as well as Bill Gates does, you need to measure how well you can currently read.

Reading well means reading fast but also comprehending what you read. This is the essence of speed reading, and what tools like Spreed and ShiftReader help you do. Take the quick and free test below to measure your current reading speed and comprehension level.
