How RocketReader improves reading comprehension

RocketReader actively tests reading comprehension. The program has over 500 graded reading texts for ages 7 to adult. Each reading has a comprehension test with a series of multiple choice questions. This testing measures how much you understood about the text that you read.

RocketReader has five highly effective training exercises to improve reading fluency. These training exercises are Flash, Grouping, Speed, Readings and Timings. Use these exercises as recommended to significantly improve your reading fluency and comprehension.

To develop vocabulary the Flash exercises are powered by a database of 40,000 phrases in Basic mode and 80,000 phrases in Advanced mode. The program includes 19 vocabulary sets and 7 sets on roots, prefixes and suffixes in the SAT module.

Plus you can import text from Word and PDF documents (and with RocketReader Professional even websites!) and use that material whilst training to improve your reading comprehension with RocketReader. You can even write your own comprehension tests.

Your program is one of the most useful things that I have ever found using the internet. RocketReader has easily doubled my reading speed, and tripled my comprehension. It is by far one of the best programs that I have purchased for myself. Thanks.(D Bialek, CA USA)

My reading speed has increased from about 400 wpm (better than average) to 1440 (yesterday) with 90% comprehension. I have both of my children using it too. I have recommended it to my company and they have purchased it also.

The methods you use, I believe are the best that current understanding of reading techniques recommend. I especially like the drills. The combination of practice with your software and reading practice works wonders. R Hubbard, AZ USA

I purchased RocketReader for my son when he was 11 years old, in the fifth grade. He truly enjoyed the stories in your program. He read all of the children's stories at least once, many of them over and over, and he loved watching the speed start out at 100 wmp and increase over and over without him realizing it.
His achievement reading scores rose from the 70th percentile to the 87th percentile. Being over the 85th percentile in reading on the Metropolitan Achievement Test allowed my son to enter the gifted classes in the South Carolina schools. We didn't know until he had reached it that his reading scores were the only area holding him back. I think that your program is wonderful. L Grubb, SC USA

Wouldn't it be great to be a skilled reader? Skilled readers can answer questions about the content, anticipate what happens next based on hints in the story, actively interact with the text and relate ideas presented in the text to their own knowledge and experiences. Highly skilled readers (critical readers) will also think about the purpose of the text.
