Scanning for Specifics


Ever try to read a big instruction manual or how-to book to find out how to fix or do something? It helps to scan the sections to find what you need quickly.

In this lesson you will:
  • Scan information by picking out key words
  • Practice scanning, rather than reading every word
  • Use your scanning skills to find information from a chart
