What is Speed Reading?
Bacaan pantas adalah kombinasi kemampuan gerakan mata atau kemampuan visual dengan kemampuan kognitif individu dalam membaca. Proses yang melibatkan kombinasi antara kepantasan membaca dengan pemahaman isi bacaan.
Speed reading is the process of rapidly recognizing and absorbing phrases or sentences on a page all at once, rather than identifying individual words.
Bacaan pantas sebagai satu teknik bacaan senyap tanpa membunyikan apa yang dibaca, menggunakan peralatan dan pergerakan yang minimum secara tuntas, duduk secara ergonomik tetapi melibatkan kelajuan bacaan yang maksimum. Bacaan pantas juga merujuk kepada aktiviti bacaan yang tidak melibatkan pembacaan secara keseluruhan perkataan yang tertulis malah ia berperanan memantau secara sepintas lalu bahan bacaan yang ada dihadapannya dan dalam masa yang sama pembaca memiliki kemampuan memahami apa yang dipantau. 
Ahmad Yazid, Perpustakaan USIM (2015)
