  1.忌不带问题。做阅读理解题时,应先把文章后面所给的考查题浏览一遍,然后带着这些 问题进行阅读。边阅读边选出考查表层情况问题的答案,从而提高阅读效果。

  2. 忌草率行事。 在设计理解题时, 设计者往往在四个选项中设计出一个似是而非的答案。 这样答案干扰性特别强,容易迷惑考生。如果在发现一个看似正确答案时就草率定案,往往
会掉进设计者设置的“陷阱”里。处理的方法是:对所给四个备选答案进行分析比较,在理解 理解阅读材料内容的基础上进行去伪存真,方可选出正确答案。

  3. 忌主观印象。 少数阅读不明确题只需根据生活常识就可选出答案, 而绝大多数则不然, 考生必须按照原文来选定答案。因此,考生在做后一种测试题时,一定要排除自身的生活经 验、经历和已有的知识等主观因素的干扰,按照文章实际反映的情况来选择答案。

  4.忌囫囵定案。所谓囫囵定案是指考生在未完全读懂文章时就匆忙定案,结果往往选错 答案。因此,尚未读懂的地方如果时间允许的话,一定要慢速多读几遍,直到读懂时再定答 案。

  5.忌忽略时间。做阅读理解题时,一定要从整体上控制时间,时间分配根据文章的难易 程度有别。 文中一两处没弄懂的地方可以暂且放置一边, 等把全部题做完后, 再回头来处理。 因为做完题后,你的心情相对放松了往往会产生新的思路、新的灵感。即使做完题后时间所 剩无几了,你再把未处理的题猜测一下也不晚,因为你仍然有选对的可能性。总而言之,阅 读理解靠的是扎实的语言基础。
俗话说:冰冻三尺,非一日之寒。扎实的语言基础来自平时严格的基本功训练和长期的 知识积累。 只要平时刻苦用功, 打下扎实的英语知识基础, 又掌握了较科学的解题方法做“阅 读理解”题是不会太难的。
我们学习英语不只是和别人交流,更重要的是,要通过阅读报刊书籍,研读名著,了解 风土人情,生活习惯,科学技术的发展与进步等等。读文章必须理解,怎样才能验证初学者 是否掌握了所阅读的文章呢?一般有回答根据短文内容所提的问题, 有给出题干, 留一个空, 再给几个答案,让答题的人根据短文内容来确定正确的答案;也有在题干上留一个空,由答 题人直接填写所缺的单词(有些难度比较大的题,则将要填写的词的首字母给出)。无论是 哪一种题型,要想解这一类题,必须建立在理解文章
