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.)

For $4.99 you can have top-off-the-class grades or it’s free. Want to know more?

Extraordinary grades are not the result of extraordinary efforts.

Extraordinary grades are the result of intelligent efforts.

Most of the points you score in class come from a small percentage of your work. If you focus on those really valuable parts of your score then you can increase it dramatically without suffering for it. In fact, you might get to the point you enjoy improving your scores.

This is something that most people don’t understand because they’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing it. Most people settle for average grades because they know how to get them. And quite frankly, average grades are painfully slow but almost anyone can use almost any method to get them as long as they spend enough time at it. It’s pretty brainless.

Students that THINK have a better way. That’s what we’re all about here.

1. Reassess Your Syllabus

The least appreciated method of improving your grades is understanding your class syllabus.

Almost every teacher gives students a syllabus describing exactly what goes into the students final score. By understanding what that syllabus means, you can focus your energy on the points that really matter.

I remember I had a math class where homework was something like 10% of the final grade. The thing that made that weird was that homework took me well over an hour every single night of class.

That means, I was spending an hour a night on the class to gain only 10% of the final score in the class. I could skip absolutely every homework assignment and still score a 90% in the class.

From that point on, I cleared up nearly an hours worth of homework every night. I did only the least frustrating parts of the homework and my grade was still near the top of the class.

I focused my efforts on test prep instead of homework. That gave me a huge advantage come test time.

2. Get A Full Night Sleep

Sleep is the thing that most students sacrifice first when they have a big test coming up.

Unfortunately, studies have shown that it’s the area that most students should sacrifice last.

Given the choice between studying or sleeping, you should almost always pick sleeping.

Studying is way less effective when you’re depriving yourself of sleep. And come test time, going in sleep deprived can be a major wild card. Some days is will work out okay but there will be other days it will completely destroy your grade.

3. Study Less But More Often

More studying is almost never the solution.

Believe it or not, most students spend enough time studying. They just don’t spend enough focused time on a regular basis studying.

Long study sessions are massively ineffective. Most students end up doing them the night before the test out of desperation. And some students can still score a reasonable grade with this strategy.

The problem is: this long single-day study session requires way more time than a short daily study session would take.

I discussed the evidence of this hundreds of times on this blog.

Cramming might relieve you of the guilt of not studying often enough but it won’t help your grade enough to matter.

4. Take Advantage Of What You’re Good At

A good syllabus assessment will take you far but there is one more important factor to consider in this equation.

What are you good at?

If you’re really good at writing or math or some specific aspect of a course then be sure to take advantage of it and maximize the points you can get for it.

This can be one of the fastest ways you can improve your grade because you probably do the things you’re good at faster than you do everything else.

And… if you’re good at it then you’re bound to get more points from it.

5. Study (Only) What’s On The Study Guide

Study guides are like test syllabi.

Sure… they’re a little less specific but they can be just as powerful.

The first thing anyone should learn to prepare for any test is the information on the study guide. If your teacher is generous enough to hand you a study guide for the test then it’s just about as good as them handing you the answer sheet.

Some teachers literally write the study guide while reading the test. Point by point they ensure the study guide is keeping up.

When you have one of these teachers, you can spend 100% of your study time on the syllabus and the only points you’ll end up losing are the mistakes you make.

On most tests, it’s not that perfect an advantage. Some teachers leave off certain topics off the study guide.

Despite that, focusing 100% on the study guide will usually be your best approach because those are guaranteed points for the test.

There is unlimited information to learn that’s not on your study guide. The study guide is a virtual guarantee that there is something important to learn.

6. Act Confident

We all screw up in school sometimes.

It’s part of being human. It’s a sign you’re actually learning something. Anyone that doesn’t make mistakes is wasting their time because they’re not learning anything.

With that in mind, you have every reason to be confident.

Sure… I don’t know your specific story but I know a few things about you:

  • You care about your grades
  • You’re willing to read this to learn to improve them
  • You are, at least, reasonably intelligent
  • You haven’t given up yet.

The only real failure is giving up.

As long as you’re confident, you never have to worry about giving up.

Not confident? I was that way for years.

The key to solving that is surprisingly simple.

Just act confident. Go through the motions. At first it will feel a little funny but once you get the hang of it, you’re going to start seeing how it sticks.

7. Learn To Study Better

When you learn to become a better learner, everything you learn in school for the rest of your academic career will benefit from it.

A 5% improvement in your strategy will improve your grade (at least) 5% every year for the rest of your academic career. Compare that to learning 5% of the information in a single school subject for one year. One year later and in every other class, it’s not going to help all that much.

Learn to learn better.

My favorite way to do that: read!

We give away free books here at Smart Student Secrets. I highly recommend you give them a read. If you’re really into it then you can join our advanced students.

The 7 Easiest Ways To Boost Your Grades Fast

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.

Please give me the chance to change your life for the better – it’s on me to prove it. What you’re going to do is: click on the link here or below, click “Buy Now”, fill in the boxes, and you’ll get your copy of the book through an instant download.

Warning: Inflation is eating my butt right now. My accountant is saying the prices need to go up to keep up with server costs ASAP or this whole site is in danger. I’m writing this one last message as a last ditch effort to get this book to anyone that wants it. If you want it, do it now while the guarantee and price are still available. You will have it for when you’re ready to start.

Last chance! Don’t miss it at the lowest price and best guarantee I can do.
