In The Sims 4, Skill Books help you advance in a particular skill, such as Cooking, Gardening, Rocket Science and Video Games, amongst others. You’ll need to be at a certain Skill Level to be able to read a Skill Book. I have listed the skill level below required to be able to read a skill book at that level.
- Skill Levels 0-4: Read skill book 1
- Skill Levels 5-7: Read skill book 2
- Skill Levels 8-10: Read skill book 3
Notes: Found out that if you re-read skill books 1 and 2 you’ll get a Bored from re-reading them. This indicated to me that you’ll need to read a higher level skill book in order to advance in that particular skill. This is helpful if you’re trying to work towards getting the trophy Basketcase.
Tip: Having the trait Speed Reader lets you read books faster and I would recommend having this trait at the earliest possible opportunity available to you.
