Finishing an MIT 4 Year Program in 1 Year
The writer of this book, Scott Young, used his own techniques to finish the 4 year MIT computer science program in only 1. In his words: ”Smart people aren’t gifted–they simply have a different strategy (which you can copy)”.
For more information on what Scott did, have a look at the video below, or read his blog post about it.
Why study more when you can study better?

Wondering what Scott achieved with these techniques?
In Scotts words:
Different strategies make a huge difference in results. By using the strategy outlined inLearn More, Study Less, I have:
- Aced University finals with little or no studying.
- Scored first in an advanced inter-province Chemistry exam. Without even being aware I was needed to take the test until five minutes before writing it.
- Read over 70 books each year.
- Scored in the top three percentile for a national exam. Despite never having taken the course being tested.
- Minimized course work to maintain an A average while running a part-time business, presiding over a Toastmasters club, exercising daily and still being able to socialize and party.
I say this not to brag, because my accomplishments are relatively modest. In researching extraordinary learners I’ve found people who have achieved A averages with triple the full-time course load, memorized entire books and breezed through degree programs designed to fail most people.
I’m telling you this because I believe you can do it too.
