When most people think about learning faster, they think that's something only geniuses can do. People who get great grades without endless hours of work must be just be smarter than the rest of us. Right?
Research shows that different methods (the kind smart people often use instinctively) can have dramatically different effects-even for normal people like you and me:
Using deeper levels of processing allowed students in one study to remember twice as much information. (Hyde, Jenkins 1969)
Small differences in how you practice can mean the difference between rapid improvement and staying on a skill plateau forever. (Ericsson 1993)
Memory can be hacked. Joshua Foer went from mediocre memory to 2005 U.S. Memory Championship winner, able to memorize thousands of items at lighting speed. All using a simple technique I teach in this course. (Foer 2011)
Better Methods to Better Results
Changing your methods can have dramatic results. I've documented this myself, learning MIT's 4-year computer science curriculum in 12 months (see my TEDx talk if you want to learn more) as well as a year-long language project, including learning Chinese to an upper-intermediate level after just over three months.
More importantly, students who have taken my course have as well:
John P. cut his studying time by 75% while improving his grades.
R.J., a former C-student, aced his professional exam in half the time.
Nayamot, went from failing to acing his chemistry class using just one method I teach.
Santiago went from barely passing with no social life to top grades and thousands of dollars in scholarships.
Deepali aced two years of material in two months, while still scoring in the top 1% for a national engineering exam.
How Can You Learn Faster?
I'm not going to hold back-I'm going to tell you what the secret is right now. All of these results are achievable through a learning strategy I call holistic learning.
Holistic learning is the process of learning by making connections.
You see, most students try to memorize information. They hope that if they repeat the ideas enough times, they'll finally understand and remember it on an exam.
This can work-but it's incredibly slow.
Holistic learners don't do this. Instead they work to link ideas together. This forms a web of knowledge which can allow you to remember things you'd otherwise forget. Think of it like thousands of access roads between the knowledge in your mind. If a main route is taken out, you can still find the knowledge you need.
Holistic learning helps you remember more, but it also helps you learn better too. By linking ideas, you understand them better. Holistic learning, therefore, can make you smarter-by allowing you to access knowledge in a way your friends and classmates can't.
What Learning on Steroids Will Teach You
Here's what Learning on Steroids will teach you:
How to work without distractions or losing focus.
Organize your time so you can get everything done without the stress.
How to remember anything you read, the first time you read it.
Easily remember the facts and rules in biology, medicine and law.
How to study for standardized exams like the SAT, GMAT, MCAT and LSAT.
Develop a deep intuition for hard ideas in math, physics and engineering.
How to learn skills like programming and languages without stalling.
Take notes that help you learn more while in class.
Learn the productivity system used by a bestselling author and MIT PhD.
Learning on Steroids is divided into twelve modules. Every month, you get a new module (once you're a member, you can upgrade to get them immediately, if you prefer). Inside every module you get:
Implementation Guides - These will each teach you a new tactic for learning faster. Many of our students, such as Nayamot, have improved their grades and cut down their studying time with just one of these. Every month you get two new guides.
Video Guides - These build on the implementation guides, walking you through examples and teaching you extra tips you can apply.
Live 1-Hour, Online Workshop - Near the end of the first month, I'll be running a live, online workshop. I'll be covering new, advanced content as well as answering your questions. If you're worried you won't be able to make it, a recording will be made available!
Ass-Kicking Emails - Each week you'll get a new ass-kicking email delivered to your inbox. This helps you stay on track with whatever new learning skills you're testing out, offering you motivation and tips to stick with it.
