When we talk about reading at university, it is not like reading a fiction book. It is about reading for key information. You may find it easier to do this at a desk with a laptop, and you will probably want to take notes too. You may want to think about the set-up that you have for reading – for example, some people will find it easier to display the text on one screen and then take notes another, so that you are not moving between screens.
