to improve your reading ability or pass placement tests in school or work? If so, then this book is
for you. Read on to ﬁnd out why.
Maybe you already like to read and want to use this book to sharpen your skills for an important test. If so,
that’s ﬁne. In fact, you can skip this part of the Introduction—or skip the Introduction entirely—and go straight

Directions: There are two passages in this test. Each passage
is followed by several questions. After reading a passage,
choose the best answer to each question and fill in the
corresponding oval on your answer sheet. You may refer to the
passages as often as necessary.
This book asks a lot of questions to help you learn how to study
effectively. But there are no “right” or “wrong” answers here. Every question
is designed to help you discover how you learn, and to help you do more of
what works for you—whether you’re reading a text, listening to a lecture,
writing a paper, or preparing for a test.

This paper describes initial work on Deep Read, an automated reading comprehension system that accepts arbitrary text input (a story) and answers questions about it. We have acquired a corpus of 60 development and 60 test stories of 3rd to 6 th grade material; each story is followed by short-answer questions (an answer key was also provided).
This work presents a model for learning inference procedures for story comprehension through inductive generalization and reinforcement learning, based on classified examples. The learned inference procedures (or strategies) are represented as of sequences of transformation rules. The approach is compared to three prior systems, and experimental results are presented demonstrating the efficacy of the model.
