Reading for a driver/operator promotion test. Handful of books and a few months. I'll have enough time to get through the material 5-6 times. This is a simple read the book and take a test type exam. No in-basket, no PAT, etc.

Anybody recommend any tips, strategies, etc for reading and absorbing? I'm reading a paragraph then having to go back and make sure I understood it. It's taking a while.
