M. O. TINUOYE
Yorkey (1979291), discussing the skill of reading in an academic setting, remarks: Reading is probably the most important skill you will need for success in your studies. You will have to read lengthy assignments in different subjects with varying degrees of detail and difficulty. If you read inaccurately, you will probably fail to understand some of the information and ideas that you read. If you read slowly you will have to spend too much time reading your assignment so that your work may suffer.
