With the Comprehension perk, you gain one additional skill point whenever a skill book is read.— In-game description

Comprehension is a perk in Fallout 3.

Effects

You gain one additional skill point whenever a skill book is read. However, points gained from books before selecting this perk are not doubled.

Notes

  • There are a total of 324 skill books in Fallout 3. With this perk, you can potentially increase the effectiveness of all 324 skill books by a factor of two, changing the potential skills increase of 324 to 648 skill points when all books are read. This, combined with the fact that two types of skill books respawn, can mean a potentially infinite number of skill points available. You cannot raise any skill above 100.
  • Books that respawn are Big Book of Science (from the ant researcher in Shalebridge) and U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower Recipes (from the raider boss using a flamer in Bethesda Office East).
