Reading & Understanding: Skimming & Scanning Skimming and scanning are two different ways of reading. To skim read is to read quite quickly and shallowly, just to get the rough idea of what you are reading about. With skim reading, you will be able to describe what you have read roughly and you will not be able to give many details. On the other hand, to scan is to search through a piece of writing for an item of information. With scan reading, you will ignore anything that is not important to you and concentrate on finding exactly what information you are looking for. In your studies you will often have to use both these two ways of reading : skimming first to get the main idea and then scanning for particular information. You will need to use skimming and scanning for work involving research, note taking and comprehensive work.
