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?

Based on what I’ve been hearing recently – cheating is more rampant than ever.

Ever since schools have spent long months with remote classes and other drastic changes, some students have turned this chaos into an opportunity of sorts.

I’ve had multiple students (ones I wouldn’t have expected to tell me this in a million years,) admitting to and implicating all their friends into stuff that is straight up cheating.

Remote classes means looking stuff up is easier than ever.

It also means paying attention becomes that much harder – creating more temptation than ever to take advantage of the situation…

No Judgement Zone

I’m not a happy-go-lucky no judgement kinda’ guy. I gotta’ be honest with you here. I can be a bit of a – moving on…

But that’s not the point of this conversation. I want to emphasize this.

In this post, I’m not trying to judge. Stuff has gone a bit crazy for a lot of people. I graduated years ago and I only know so much about how strange this stuff is getting.

What I understand:

1. It’s easier than ever to cheat.
2. It’s harder than ever to get caught.
3. You can improve your short-term results…

And to be completely honest, a huge percent of your competition in class is probably cheating too. That means the students not cheating are at a distinct disadvantage.

4. They don’t even (necessarily) deserve your honesty.

Put another way, I can imagine scenarios where this kind of stuff is perfectly ethical – like lying to protect your friend from the bully coming to beat the crap out of em’ or something. I don’t want to waste time convincing you that cheating is bad for the school – not important. I’m going to focus on the practicality of it.

How To Be Smarter Than Your Friends

From a practical standpoint, cheating is a flawed strategy.

Opportunities usually look like challenges.

When you find out that tons of other students around you are cheating, you’re presented with a challenge.

You’re going to have to work harder to compete with students that have an unfair advantage against you. (Or you could take the risks and join them.)

But that’s also an opportunity because life won’t always give them that unfair advantage. When that unfair advantage disappears, (some of you have already watched this happen, I know it.) the students that relied on cheating will be floundering. Those that stayed legit will get a huge advantage.

Assuming a large number of students cheated, that will just make this advantage bigger because…

Teachers will see the average scores in their classes dropping. Many of those teachers will assume they need to scale down the difficulty. That means, not only will you be better but the work could literally get easier. Your head start could easily catapult you to the top tier of your class.

And seriously though…

How To Completely Fail At Life (And Score High Anyway)

Cheating gives a short term advantage (if done successfully and it remains a secret,) but in the long run, it will always face up against the realities of life.

If your school never notices, maybe your next one will. And if they don’t, your employer will probably notice eventually. They may see your top of the class scores and think you’re all that just to see how much of a dope you are – your scores won’t matter then. (Of course, smart people can cheat too. It’s just a gamble to assume you’re so smart that you don’t need what school is teaching you.)

I’m not saying cheating will make you a failure.

I’m just saying, cheaters are at a significantly higher risk of being a big failure.

Scores matter until they don’t matter anymore. And when they don’t matter, will you be prepared for what you were supposed to be preparing for?

If you are then you can succeed. If not…

Just be prepared.

Why are you cheating?

If you’re cheating because it’s a calculated risk you’re taking to improve your long term prospects in life then –

I disagree with your position (probably) but I understand where you’re coming from. Some students are very successful doing this.

If you’re cheating because:

-you’re scared of failing
-you want to impress people
-you’re lazy
-you’re not capable of passing without cheating
-you like “getting away with it”

Then I think you’re setting yourself up for a very challenging life. These are things that will hold you back for your entire life and they’re way deeper than a number on a report card.

Last thing…

What kind of a world do you want to live in?

I know you can’t stop others from cheating. But if you choose to participate in this kind of a world then you’re going to make it more prevalent. And you’re going to have to live with those consequences…

I’m thinking of a Nietzsche idea that is something like this:

Most people that step into this unethical world end up running through a labyrinth being chased by their own Minotaur of conscience. They think they can handle it before they do it but then they constantly have to keep taking more and more complicated turns to try to justify their actions in their own minds.

10 years from now – you’re a massive success – will you believe you genuinely deserve it? Or will it eat away at you? Will these decisions encourage you to take bigger and more serious risks?

I don’t know. For some people it won’t matter. It would torture me.

You choose the world you want to surround yourself with – if only by what you focus on.

I recommend focusing on honesty, love, and strange Youtube rabbit holes.

The Nasty Truth About Cheating These Days

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.
