Skim over

DEFINITION

Quick review. Cursory or hasty reading. Skimming is a way of reading quickly but not thoroughly such as a legal contract. You can also skim over a google world view map or a long list of items. (Compare to Fly by the seat of one’s pants. Contrast with Skip ahead.)

Skim over the contract and we can talk about it later before you sign.”
