EBooks Vs Books: Reading for Your Test Preparation

Rate this post


Research has proved that reading a real book is more significant and effective than reading online; it can affect your happiness and memory. As a scholar I advice you of printing any articles or research or e-book you find online and read it on paper instead and you will feel the difference, especially when you are preparing for various tests like IELTS, GRE. Here are a few points on ebooks vs books comparisons.


It makes you more intelligent and knowledgeable and increases your brain memory

Everything you read, you will need it sooner or later in your life. It gets in your brain, gives you more knowledge. The context feeds your brain. Always remember that we never stop learning.

Research proved that new vocabulary leads to higher score on general tests of intelligence. If you taught your kids to learn reading at an early age, they will have higher intelligence later in life.

According to research published in Neurology, reading improves your memory, helps make you smarter and increases your brain power. Frequent brain exercise was able to lower mental decline by 32 percent, reports The Huffington Post.

Reading makes you knowledgeable, every author gives you his/her experience in life, thus you grow fast with no need to experience every single thing. It gives you the experience without any expenses.


It reduces stress and helps you to sleep

Use reading as if you are taking a trip. Getting into a novel or an article makes you, distracts you, and keep you in the present moment thus driving your thinking away. Before you go to bed, try reading two to four pages, it can help you sleep faster while the tablets, laptop, mobile screens can keep you awake longer. This is one place where the print takes home the cake in this ebooks vs books reading contrasting.


It strengthens your analytical thinking skills

Reading a lot gives you what’s called the sixth sense. It strengthens your intuition and your analytical thinking skills. Reading a novel gives you the ability to analyze the plot whether it’s a good plot or not while, in real life, it makes it easier for you to guess the characteristics of the people you meet and predict the events.


Getting lost in a good book could also make you more empathetic.

You got to read literature more often as it gives you the power to read people’s emotions easier and knows the way they think. Thus, reading fiction benefits your mental skills more than non-fiction. Make reading literature or fictional books one of your daily habits. “Understanding others’ mental states is a crucial skill that enables the complex social relationships that characterize human societies,” David Comer Kidd and Emanuele Castano wrote of their findings.


It affects your understanding

Flipping pages can help you understand what you’re reading much easier.

Going through your book is more effective than e-book in remembering what you read. The feel of paper pages leads to deeper understanding of what you are reading as the magic of any physical touch.


It improves focus and concentration

In the online world, people’s attention is drawn in different directions, people don’t stay on one article or one website they always switch from Facebook to Twitter, check their notifications, answer their calls, etc… This type of behavior causes stress levels to rise, and lowers our productivity. However when you hold a book and read it, the whole world stops and you only focus on the story.


Never stop reading no matter what. Make Reading one of your daily rituals, whether you read a book or an e-book. Reading infatuates your brain. It’s a treasure.

As Dr. Seuss once wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.”
