There was nother similar kinda stuff floating around a while back.. it involved research tests on people, where they were presented with a line, in which the words were half covered... like say the bottom half is covered... But with jus the top of the the words in the line visible, most of the subjects could read it with an amazingly less number of errors....

But when the top half was covered, with only the bottom half visible, the subjects could not read the line at all !!!

This has got to with pattern recognition in the brain.. wherein the brain processes visual information in many different ways.. and in many different areas of the brain too !! Not only the visual cortex plays a role in recognition, but there are other areas, primarily the visual association cortex, and other regions, that think, understand the meaning of the word etc etc... all this put together condition the brain towards a more efficient pattern recognition, but with specificity as well !!

Reading faster books say the same things... You should not concentrate on each and every letter in a word or each and every word in a sentence... But just grasp the sentence as a whole... I cant understand how one could achieve this...!!!

Thats context reading instaed of literal reading which is important in comprehensions in GMAT and MAT and also in managerial practices.
