Going through a speed reading course is advice I received from a friend who is a MS2 when she heard I got into med school. I would like to know what medstudents really think about these courses and if they do help, which is the best program to start working on before school starts in the summer?

I didn't take a speed reading class and did fine. As did probably 99% of my classmates.

Q, DO

They are a waste of time. I spent $275 on one, and I all I learned was to move my fingers quickly over each line and force my brain to see the words faster.
