...playing them really slow? If you notice, most of the etudes are built around a theme interval, so if you look at it first, and realize what the common interval is, then your brain has a head start when reading. Also, use Roger Bobo's trick from his book where he turns a passage into an add-a-note exercise. Play the first note. Then play the first two notes. Then play the first three notes. Then play the first four notes. Then play them backwards. Then add some more, etc, etc.
