The survey step in SQ3R requires you to skim the entire chapter from beginning to end. The questions that you pose as part of SQ3R should all be brief ones that require only a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. Textbook assignments should usually not be completed in one sitting. The only way to complete the second R in SQ3R is to recite the key points of each chapter section.
