Did anyone use EyeQ software before starting law school?
« on: July 15, 2005, 08:11:34 PM »
So I'm thinking of getting EyeQ software before I start law school because I've heard that it makes you read faster.  Has anyone used it and what can you tell me about it?

Thanks.

I tried it out earlier this year, it seemed to work pretty well.

Did you notice a lot of improvement?

Not a lot of improvement, but I do read faster now.  I'm not sure how useful it will be for school since you really have to scutinize everything, but it's great for light/leisure reading.

I did a speed reading program as a child, and I read really fast (compared to other people).  it really helped for reading comp on the LSAT. 

I have considered doing EyeQ too.  Why not?

i toyed around with it before the LSAT.

I think it only helps people the most who have existing problems reading.

I mean, to provide a benchmark, I scored around a 760 verbal on my SAT adminstration and on my LSAT, I believe I missed around 3 questions total on my reading comp (or whatever it was called) section.

I can't say eyeq helped terribly. It forces you to learn to scan text fast, but its only beneficial to those people who like reading things over two to three times.

Do you think it would be worth it to use before I start law school?  The OP said that it wouldn't be that beneficial because we do have to scrutinize evrything in law school.  So I'm just wondering if I should bother.

I don't think it would be worth to get before starting law school.  Enjoy your summer off.

I also used EyeQ for the lsat.  It was helpful for improving eye coordination/speed, but I really don't think it helps for heavy reading.  EyeQ focuses more on tricks to help your eyes move across the page faster-- something that isn't useful for the type of comprehension you will be needing.  It might be helpful for reading a magazine or light reading, but not constitutional law:)
