Are you frustrated by school? Do you feel like you will never understand what they are trying to teach? Do you hate memorizing useless information just to past the test? Would you like to have more time for your friends, your family, and your hobbies?

I help you!

The Deeper Learning method will help you learn more in less time. The Deeper Learning method goes beyond simple memorization tricks so you won't just be able to regurgitate facts and dates, you'll be able to understand the principles behind what you're learning.


Over a thousand students are already enroled in the course.


Do you have a couple classes that you hate because you never seem to get anywhere no matter how much time you spend studying? The Deeper Learning method will actually have you enjoying those classes. Don't believe me? The Deeper Learning method will have you learning more in less time so you can eliminate the stress, drama, depression, and tears.

Presented techniques are proven to work, and won't require you to load up on energy drinks or have the discipline of a monk. Just follow the ten simple steps and better grades await.


Studies have demonstrated that cramming is not the best way to learn. Methods I put together in this course go beyond memorization so you can understand the complex principles behind the facts and figures. And for when you do need those facts and figures, I'll show you where to find the best information in everything you read without spending hours wading through the trivial stuff.


The course consists of 18 lectures and four quizzes. You can take the whole thing in a single hour. I don't recommend that, however. Because the content is so dense and there are follow up tasks at the end of each lecture, I strongly suggest spreading it out over several days or a few weeks.

************* ************* ************* ************* *************
I'm not a native English speaker. So I have to write a script for each lecture and a native speaker reads the comments in order to be clear for you what is said. Because of that the content of the course is very condensed! Not any empty words and sentences. It means that you will learn from a one-hour video of my course as much as from several hours videos of other Udemy courses! It saves your time and help you apply the proven principles into the practice faster.

************* ************* ************* ************* *************

The course will teach you:
  • Self-motivation techniques
  • Time management
  • How to get information from the Deep Web
  • Smart reading
  • Critical thinking
  • Effective, efficient note taking
  • How to create mind maps
  • Clear, concise academic communication
  • Complex problem solving
This course is the second one in a project titled “School Can Be Fun." If you are not sure of your basic study skills, you might want to take the introductory course “Improve Your Study Skills-Ace Exams" first.

You can also find many other free study tips on the project's Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages.

We offer a 30-day money back refund, so if you don't think the course helps you, you can request a refund. There's nothing to lose.

Who this course is for:
  • Everyone who wants to study less and learn more.
  • High School or a Freshman in college students.
  • Advanced students with doubts about their study skills.

Hello, and welcome to my second course on the Udemy platform. I’m very glad you found this; it means that you’re not satisfied with your current study skills and want to invest in yourself. That’s one of the best things you can do!

This course is designed to help you understand what you learn.

Preview 02:40

I strongly suggest taking this course continuously from start to finish. By skipping lectures, you can miss some very important information.

Additionally, there are quizzes at the end of each section. Passing them is not required, but you will learn more if you take them seriously.

+ Motivation

Section two is all about motivation – a critical component of effective studying.

To be successful at anything in life, you have to be interested in it! You won’t excel in any field if you’re not strongly focused. The same applies to studying.

When you know why you want to study a particular course, it doesn’t mean the rest will be easy. There will still be many obstacles to overcome.

Preview 03:00

You now know what you want to study and have put aside time for it, but that’s not enough for long-term efficiency.

Step 3: Personal Rewarding System
3 questions
+ Finding the Right Resources
4 lectures 25:12

You probably already know how to use search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Maybe you use Wikipedia on a daily basis and think you know how to find information. But did you know that according to professional estimates, only 4% of content on the internet is possible to find through regular search methods? What about the other 96%? It’s hidden in the Deep Web.

Step 4: Using Deep Web

An important part of deeper learning is being able to study from many different resources. However, this may be very time-consuming and counter-productive without the knowledge of smart reading.

Step 5: Smart Reading

A concept that works very well for me is the “snowball principle”. I start with one or more resources suggested by the teacher, such as a textbook, book, or article mentioned in the course syllabus. Ones written by your teacher have the highest priority. Many students tend to end here, though, and that is a big mistake because it can be very time-consuming to try to understand a topic well using only one source. For deeper learning, you don’t want to just memorize definitions and statements from your teacher; you want to understand what the topic is really about.

Step 6: Snowball Principle

Without being able to take good notes during smart reading, the entire study session could end up being worthless! You could end up frustrated at spending so many hours at the library without actually learning anything.

Step 7: Advanced Taking Notes Techniques
Using Resources
3 questions
+ Putting Techniques into Practice
5 lectures 13:19

If you’ve read through and completed each step so far, then you’ve written down the essential facts necessary for understanding your particular topic in your notes. Read your notes carefully and try to find similarities or connections. You may use the mind maps method to describe the topic in a more visual way. If you find that some notes are unclear, adjust them using notes from other sources, or study the same source again.

Step 8: Finding Essential Facts

It’s important to move this newly learned information from your short-term memory to your long-term memory in order to be able to recall the information any time you need it. All of the important facts are written in your notes, but how can you make sure you don’t forget them? Simple! Sort and associate the facts.

Step 9: Drawing Complex Picture

This is the final step! I hope you’ve realize how easy it can be to understand even very complex topics without superpowers or expending extraordinary amounts of energy. Continue using these techniques on an everyday basis. After you finish one topic, move on to the next. You’ll find that you’ll improve these techniques every time you use them on your own. Each of us are different, and we each have different skills and habits, so you’ll surely find ways to further enhance these techniques and make them even more effective for yourself. I’d love to hear the tips you find useful!
