Efficient reading isn't the only skill you need at university; you also need to read critically. This means suspending judgement on a text until you
have understood the message being put forward
If you read uncritically you may accept texts and arguments which are flawed, biased and subjectively written. Reading critically will help to make sure that your study and research activities continue as soundly as possible. To help you read in this way, you might use the critical reading checklist to help you ask the right sort of questions of the material you have to read.
