Introduction
1 Lecture 02:32

Kick off the course with this short overview of what you're about to learn. Keep your ears open for suggestions on how to engage the course, too.

While we recommend that you watch all the course content in one sitting, it's OK if you need to split it up. If you do, it's best if you do two things. First, finish all course videos within a week. Second, stop at the completion of a section, rather than in the middle of one.

Once you watch all the videos once, you can start applying what you've learned right away. Reference back to the course material and trivia periodically to stay fresh (highly recommended!).

Founder and Chief Instructor at The Wiseman Institute

I'm completely obsessed with one goal: to show University and University-bound students how to quickly learn and remember virtually anything taught in the classroom.

I wasn’t born with a genius IQ (like most of us!), but I still graduated in the top 2% of my class from Penn State University’s main campus. I completed the Schreyer Honors Program, the Sapphire Accelerated Business Program, two Bachelors of Science degrees, held office in multiple business and charitable organizations, and I landed a great job after graduation under very competitive conditions. I'm now working full time while studying for my Masters at Columbia University.

What did I do differently?  I was determined to have the best possible college experience and still get top scores. So I researched all I could about resource optimization, productivity hacks, and most importantly, how the brain learns and remembers. I ultimately perfected a new learning method that was not only incredibly successful for me, but for everyone else I tutored.

As word quickly spread, more and more students were asking for my help. So I decided to make it easy for anyone to learn how to learn, online. (That is, with a little help from friends, family and Kickstarter backers - 176% of goal met!).
