About This Class

Ever wonder how people learn highly complicated skills in just a few hours? Or how top students maintain 4.0 GPAs? 

I’ll give you a hint: it’s not magic. It's efficiency.

Hi, we're Nick and Soma.

Our course is based on one simple premise: most people don't know how to learn.

Unfortunately, modern school systems spend years attempting to teach you everything from ancient history to esoteric calculus

But thousands of hours of your time could be saved if, for just a moment, people stopped focusing on what to learn and instead focused on how to go about learning it.

A quick analogy:

Two people are trying to learn a skill. Both learn it at a hypothetical rate of 1 unit per hour. Once a person has reached 100 units in that particular skill, they're said to have "mastered the skill".

Person A wastes no time - he gets right down to work and ends up taking 100 hours to learn the skill.

Person B decides to invest one initial hour of their time into learning two or three simple productivity techniques. After the hour is done, the increased efficiency and productivity allows them to learn at a slightly faster rate of 1.1 units per hour.

Person B will ultimately only take 91 hours to learn the skill. That's 9 hours saved with just a 10% boost in efficiency.

Now what if that single hour could give them a 20% boost in efficiency? In this case, Person B will have saved 16.5 hours.

How about a 30% boost in efficiency? 23 hours. That’s nearly a full day saved.

I could go on and on, but I think the point is clear: modest gains in efficiency and productivity can end up saving you tons of time down the road. And if you’re anything like me, you value your time.

So let’s get more efficient.

Our course is going to teach you how to maximize memory consolidation in three phases: before, during, and after the learning period. And through these three phases, we’ll touch on everything from planning & learning techniques to sleep & nutrition. 

Our material comes from two university degrees' worth of knowledge (Nick majored in behavioral neuroscience, and Soma majored in molecular biology), hundreds of hours of research, and dozens of high-quality, peer reviewed studies on learning and memory.

In short: we are the real deal. And our content will prove it.

Sign up today and become an efficient learner. See you on the other side!

*This is part 1 of a 3 part course.
