Hi!

I’m Red-beard The Pirate and I’ve helped thousands of students get killer grades with my book (and I’m even talking about the procrastinators too.)

Only $4.99  and you only pay it if you see the results you’re looking for – otherwise I walk the plank matey!

Want to know more?

The best way for the average student to improve their grades is to stop studying.

For now…

Stop studying with that strategy that isn’t getting you the result you want.

This is the exact opposite of what most students do.

They see a low grade. They’re disappointed. To feel better, they spend more time using the same study strategies they’ve always used.

And, if they’re lucky, they will see a small increase in their grades.

Eventually, this strategy will hit a wall. There is no way around it.

 

Study More And You Will Collide With Reality

Studying “more” comes with costs that most students ignore.

Most students fall into habits with their study routine.

They might study an hour a night. Or more likely, they’ll study 5 hours the night before a test.

They won’t change anything as long as it’s working. That makes sense.

When something goes wrong their first instinct is to study more but that immediately destroys the balance that had been achieved.

When you study longer, you do other things less.

You have to spend less time with your friends.

You may have to spend less time eating.

At the very least, you’ll have to spend less time relaxing at the end of the day.

This study strategy used to work because all of these things were balanced.

Increasing your time studying tears time away from other things you find important.

That imbalances everything.

This is what leads to…

 

The Number Of Killer Of Awesome Grades

Procrastination kills your grades.

When you have the right study routine, procrastination is almost non-existent.

Procrastination is your bodies natural reaction to the self-punishment you’re forcing yourself through.

If you don’t spend enough time doing what’s important to you, you’re not going to want to study.

It doesn’t matter if what you want to do is productive or not.

Your body and brain will fight to focus your attention on what matters most to you.

There are ways you can reprogram yourself to think differently but you shouldn’t expect to instantly change your natural instincts.

(Don’t try and change your behavior before you change the way you think.)

More importantly than that, if what you’re doing isn’t working well then you’re not going to want to do it!

It’s foolish to try and fill a bucket with a hole in it.

Your subconscious is going to see that hole and think, “I don’t want to fill that bucket. It will take too long. It’s boooring.”

Once you repair that hole in the bucket, most of those objections disappear.

Studying is boring when it’s not working. It can take forever.

When you fix the problem in your study routine, most of your objections will disappear.

Studying becomes easy.

And the craziest thing is: it can take less time than you take to get ready in the morning.

During my busiest semesters in college, I’ve always spent more time in the shower than studying.

 

Your Teachers Can’t Tell You This Stuff

Most teachers don’t even know the strategies you’re about to learn.

In the United States, education is regularly ranked among the easiest college majors.

Don’t take that to mean they’re not intelligent. It’s just a different environment.

Teachers usually don’t need top notch strategies to keep up with their classes.

Sure… they can benefit from these strategies. They just don’t absolutely need them.

Where you’re going to find the most powerful study strategies are in the hardest degree fields.

  • Look at medical students and see what they use? (Active recall… more on that later.)
  • Look at law students and see what they use? (Creative expansion… more on that later.)
  • Look at what math students and see what they use? (Precision… that is just what it sounds like.)

Certain strategies are essential for average college students in super challenging majors.

For example, it’s almost impossible to learn thousands of terms and definitions without active recall.

You don’t have to be in the hardest college major to appreciate these strategies though.

In fact, since they aren’t essential to surviving, you’re going to be more capable of thriving.

The average student may need to study an hour a night to keep up in class.

A student that understands these strategies can usually study less than 15 minutes a night.

 

How To Bring Your Grades Up To The Next Level

There are hundreds of complex strategies that I’ve taught over the years but the most simple of the strategies are the most powerful.

Most of what you need to know can be learned with a few hours of practice.

 

Active Recall

Active recall is practicing to remember stuff.

Answer this question: what did you eat for breakfast this morning?

To answer that question, you may have had to think a second. That second of thinking is active recall.

Visually: If you have the urge to scrunch your face and look up when you’re trying to answer a question then you’re probably using active recall.

Practice remembering the things you want to remember.

Don’t read it repeatedly. Don’t highlight it. Practice it.

Flash cards are the classic example of studying like this.

 

Creative Expansion

This is a term that’s been coined by a few different people to mean different things. I’m hereby recoining it blatantly.

Creative Expansion is taking what you know and turning it into something more based on other things you know.

This is a hard process to imagine because it’s so broad in its implications. The more specific my example is, the easier it will be to debunk.

If you know two facts:

1. George Washington was the first US president.
2. George Washington was a general before that.

You can make up the statement: George Washington developed his impeccable leadership from his years as a general.

Notice there is a new detail that has nothing to do with the facts. It assumes:

George Washington had impeccable leadership.

That’s very reasonable to assume because he became president and was a general before that but it’s not necessarily factual. You need for evidence to claim that genuinely. Mostly though, people don’t care.

Most of school is related to this form of creative expansion.

You take what you know and you make reasonable assumptions.

This allows you to turn what you don’t know into something that you can score points off of.

90% of teachers don’t care if you’re completely right.

They care more about when you’re wrong.

If you provide an inaccurate fact then you’re in trouble.

If you provide a logical and potentially verifiable fact then they usual will assume it’s fine. (There is an exception for controversial stuff.)

Practice building on the facts.

Use that to improve your grade with less memorization.

 

Prioritization

This is the most versatile strategy any student can learn.

It matters in every aspect of your academics.

In each class, focus on the assignments that are valued the highest.

Don’t waste time on assignments that don’t have obvious value.

Use your class syllabus for this.

In each semester, focus on classes that have the most impact on your future.

In high school, that often means focusing on courses for your major. It could also mean increasing your lowest grade to increase your chances to get into a top-notch college.

In college, it usually means focusing on classes related to your major.

In general, it’s good to focus your energy on the classes you plan to make a career in.

This expands into your personal life too.

Don’t waste time doing things that you don’t think are valuable for you.

I was like you too.

I was dissatisfied with my grades.

Then I got the chance to master academics.

That’s why I love sharing what I learned so much.

Now thousands of students have applied these strategies to create amazing results for themselves.

Nothing gives me more satisfaction than the stories these students tell.

You can change your grades for the better.

(You can tell me the story :P)

Stop Trying To Improve Your Grades – Until You See This

A B&C Students Guide To Mercilessly Crushing A Students At Their Own Game (While Laughing Your Way Towards The Ivy-League)

Are you smart but getting meh grades?

The smartest students are often the ones the school system leaves behind. It’s easy to motivate a half-wit (or even almost-wit – like a horse with a carrot dangled in it’s face to get it running. Giddy-up horsey!

You would never fall for that, right? Then this is for you.

It’s easy to procrastinate when you’re getting a raw deal. That’s the smart thing to do.

Academics is a game – and its prizes are good. Really good! There is more to the story than that though. What do you have to do to get that prize? And that matters even more than the prize. Study 18 hours a day for straight-A’s and a high-paying job someday in the distant future? Ughhh… Not me. That’s for sure.

I scored near the top of my college Engineering class while studying less than 15 minutes a morning. And seriously, I don’t sound like a super genius, do I?

Hint: I had barely scraped a 1.0 GPA in high school and I wasn’t skipping and having fun with friends either – I was… dare I say… trying my best.

Big Tip: trying doesn’t matter unless you’re experimenting or already using an effective strategy. Trying without an effective strategies is a waste that can plop your grades in the stinker. First step – STOP TRYING with ineffective strategies.

You got that?

Look… I’m a bit crazy. I get it. I’ve read hundreds of books on grades, learning, and memory. I spent sleepless nights studying obscure academic journals. I swear, I even read the book “How To Read A Book” and didn’t have to drink alcohol to do it!

WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF!?

You wanna’ know why?

Don’t tell anyone but… I care. I was emotionally crippled by the school system. I had heartless, lazy, and downright mean teachers (and a couple good ones that couldn’t help.) It took years for me to untangle their mess…

And I went to college and beat them at their own wretched game. Top scores. Easy studying. Time to make friends and impress the ladies. (You know… the important stuff!)

But I know… I wasn’t alone and I know there are others facing similar and worse challenges than I did. And I may be out of the warzone now but I can’t in good conscience leave you behind without my arsenal.

That’s why a decade ago I founded Smart Student Secrets and got link backs from LifeHack, HuffPo, and good college professors with names I can’t pronounce from all over the world that see these strategies crushing every day. But forget about them… the emails I get from grateful students… that’s the stuff a good life is made of.

My newest book is, in my opinion, the best book ever written for students that want to absolutely crush the academic game.

It gets you to focus your energy on the most important aspects of grades – giving you leverage on the system.

It shows you the big painful studying, you’re not benefiting from – that you thankfully get to stop today and forever.

It takes the latest in academic research on memory and puts into your hands, the exact memorization strategies that a Purdue Professor proved can let someone memorize 2.35 things for every one they’re memorizing now.

And this isn’t about “working harder” – and it’s not about “working smarter” either. (I cringe every time I read that phrase.)

It’s about working only when it matters most and creating the habit of motivated and effective learning.

I guarantee this… You can skyrocket your grades with my book while studying less than you ever had to study before. If I’m wrong, send me an email and I’ll refund you – no questions asked.
