I have exponentially increased my academic performance thanks to this course. THANK YOU a lot Dr. Pinesett. You literally saved my whole life because I felt so defeated and beat down before getting into the course. Dr. Pinesett literally stopped me from committing suicide due to poor grades. I love you Dr. Pinesett and thank you for saving my life!

Forget everything you think you know about studying…

I did, and it took me from the brink of flunking out of college to studying only 2 hours per day and getting into Stanford Medical School!

And now, I’ve been able to spend the past almost 20 years teaching students how to get motivated, get focused and study efficiently, so they can be happier, more productive and take control of their future!

If you’re like most students, you think you already know how to study because your entire life people keep telling you that school is easy, all you need to do is:

… Be more motivated

… Dedicate yourself

… Stop procrastinating

… Use your time wisely

… Take better notes

… Read faster

… Study harder

… Study actively

…Study efficiently.

Am I right?

Now, let me ask you this, if you know what it takes to be a successful student, why aren’t you as successful as you want to be? Seriously, take a second and ask yourself, if you know what you have to do to succeed, why aren’t you the student you want to be?

Ask some more questions:

  • Why aren’t the A’s you do get as satisfying as you know they should be? 
  • Why do you dread studying?
  • Why are you always strapped for time, never being able to get through all the materials? 
  • Why do you do well in some classes and struggle mightily in others?
  • Why do you procrastinate and avoid studying whenever possible? When you finally actually study, why do you suffer from S.O.D. (Sudden Onset Drowsiness)?
  • Why do you find that no matter how hard you study, when test time arrives you become insanely nervous and everything you learned escapes you?

I’ll tell you why, it is because there is a HUGE difference between knowing WHAT to do and knowing HOW to do it!

I knew what I was supposed to be doing if I wanted to get A’s in college and get into medical school, but I didn’t know how to actually do it. And if I didn’t even know how to do it, I surely couldn’t do it at a high-level and to do it at a high-level every time. Consequently, my dream of making my family proud and saving lives was slipping away. 

It took me thousands of hours to learn HOW to be a successful student and even longer to be able to implement what I learned.

But, you don’t have to go through what I did because I have dedicated my life to empowering students and I created The 5 Pillars of Studying Less & Getting Better Grades for you. It’s a proven system for studying smart that brings together the latest research in mindset, neurocognition, time management, and studying with 15+ years of my own trial and error working with students.

This is the first and only true HOW-TO-STUDY system that lays out specific, practical and immediately actionable step-by-step instructions on HOW to STUDY ACTIVELY and CONSISTENTLY, and to do so in a way that allows you to actually ENJOY SCHOOL and ENJOY STUDYING!

The 5 Pillars of Studying Less & Getting Better

These are not a bunch of random tips, tricks and hacks. These 5 pillars make-up a comprehensive study system that will help you be more independent and more successful. Each pillar builds on the one prior:


Pillar 1:

Teaches you to remove all the things that are stopping you from actually studying, and studying at 100% focus. In working with students, I have found that before learning to study better, students need to learn to actually be studying, instead of just thinking they are studying.

Pillar 2:

Now that you have removed the waste from your studying time and it is actually studying, this pillar breaks the semester into discrete intervals and teaches you how to allocate your study hours so that you can avoid procrastination and get WEEKS ahead in your classes so you NEVER have to be nervous about getting everything done.

Pillar 3:

Everything is in order for you to start studying. But, what should you study? This section will teach you the importance of focusing in on the key concepts and testable points of courses. With this understanding, you don’t waste time on low-yield material and you ensure that you won’t be blind-sided by material on the test. In this section, you will also learn how to turn that focused studying into active and impactful notes.

Pillar 4:

Now that you know what to study, we turn our focus to distributing all the material out over the term so that we can stay ahead, maximize active repetition and breeze into finals completely confident that we understand everything at a superior level to other students.

Pillar 5:

You’ve worked hard all quarter. Pillar 5 teaches you how to overcome test anxiety, capitalize on your hard work and dominate tests. Culminating with reflecting on how well you executed your study strategies and overall study plan for that term and begin to make adjustments for the next term to be even better.

The beauty of this course is that it builds a strong study foundation that is effective with any and every class you take. You can then personalize it and build additional skills off of this foundation as you move through your career and become more nuanced in your approach.

No matter what classes you take, what challenges you face or what level of education you get to, this system works! To this day, I am still using this system for my studying. It even works with Anesthesia. 

In as quickly as a few weeks, you will be able to:

Thrive in any class, on any topic, and with any teacher because you're a versatile learner. 

Structure your studying so that you look forward to study sessions and have boundless study energy.

Break up the semester strategically so that you can utilize your time wisely, enabling you to have more free time and avoid stressful cram sessions.

Break any class into its core components so that you can organize your studying and readily identify what is likely to appear on your exams.

Overcome test-anxiety and let your true inner master test-taker shine through.

It will reduce your stress and transform you into an efficient, independent and completely unstoppable student… whether you are in high school, college, grad school or even Med school!

Ultimately, you will become an independent and unstoppable student. Completely confident that you can study less than everyone else and still get better grades.

"Through this course, Dr. Pinesett explains how to condense the information of university courses in a way that I honestly did not think was possible. He shows techniques that can be done by anyone and proves that it doesn't require any special talent to become a great student. This program is so complete that it inevitably motivates you to improve in all facets of your life and to challenge yourself in personal aspects as well. Dr. Pinesett is very accessible and he genuinely cares for the progress of his students. This course gave me the tools to change my grades and the confidence to know that I can get even better with time, which is very inspiring since I am a super senior and have struggled to find the right way to learn during the past years. "

Ana Lopez

Amazing course!

"This course opened my eyes to so many of the bad habits I had in undergrad and why I wasn't as successful as I could have really been. Dr. Pinesett breaks studying completely down into it's most potent components. I have a completely different, more in-depth approach to studying now."

Lerena Holloway

A MUST for Serious Students!

"This is an awesome course. This course teaches students how to be excellent students. This is everything you need to know to be able to succeed in Undergrad. This course covers everything from how to remove learning barriers to taking effective notes in class. This course is very unique. It teaches you the skills and techniques you need to know to reach your full potential and be the best students that you can be. I totally recommend this course to all students."

Emin Babaei

The Secret Sauce to Success

"Just signing up for this course was a lot cheaper than the useless professor and tutors I paid for last semester. I feel so much more able to retain information. The material is easy to go through. I also take notes and pictures from the course so I can review sections at work. Reviewing the strategies to get my study strategies down. I have even passed them along to family and friends who said they are thankful for the new tips. Thanks Dr. Pinesett!!"

Chester Charles

So much Value

"I still go back to this course because it is so rich in detail. I finally felt like I could do well in college. The strategies are presented in an organized way; it's easy to find exactly what you need. I am a better student because of this course. As Dr. Pinesett says, it isn't enough to just listen to it. You must IMPLEMENT the techniques and be consistent. Hard work on your part is essential in order to succeed. In addition to study strategies, Dr. Pinesett talks about how to have a proper mindset when studying. This honestly makes a huge difference in how effective you are with your studying. All in all, I would really recommend this course. "

Thi U.

Fantastic Course!

"As an older non-traditional pre-med, I thought I had reached the peak of my studying potential. However, this course took me on a deep dive of study strategy and uncovered many things that were holding me back. With these new strategies in hand, I’m excited every time I sit down to study; because as we know effective study strategies always lead to student success. Those of you on the path, you won't be disappointed with this course! Well done Dr. Pinesett, thank you! "

Brandt Hausmann

A Must for Serious Student!

"This course will teach you how to maximize your time and resources. It is well organized, easy to follow, and guaranteed to yield results if implemented seriously. It is the epitome of "working smarter, not harder". But what made the course enjoyable is Dr. Pinesett's friendly and relatable personality. He speaks from the perspective of someone who has achieved the goal but still empathizes with the pre-med struggle."

"This course has been very powerful and meaningful because it helped going through my semester in a so smooth way that I cannot even describe it! I struggled at the beginning, I have to admit that, but as Dr. Pinesett repeats billion times, it takes effort, motivation and consistency! Never give up folks, and let's get that MD license!"

Roberto Sacripanti

Just awesome!

"This course is amazing because Dr. Pinesett teaches you study skills and techniques but more importantly how to apply them to your learning. Dr. Pinesett gives you more bang for your buck. Seriously over delivers in this course. He is always adding extra content and is available to help if you are having any issues with the course. This course is for anyone who wants to improve their grades but you must be willing to put in the work required or you won't be successful. Invest in your education and buy this course you won't regret it!"

Juan Nieto

An investment worthwhile

"Thanks to Dr. Pinesett for taking all your time and effort putting together this course. I will definitely have to go back and re-watch some things as I go through my courses but the money spent on this course was worth it. I already feel more confident in my study-times. Thank you again, Dr. Pinesett!"

Dawn Payne

Dr. Pinesett is the bomb!

"If you need to improve your grades this course will CHANGE YOUR LIFE! As a first generation college student, education was never a huge value in my family. It was often more important to my family that I be working or cleaning the house, with academics coming in dead-last as a family priority. Needless to say, classes in high school AND college were tough . I floundered CONSTANTLY. I was always "hoping" that I'd get a great grade or that I would just make the mark to "pass" a course. I retook multiple science pre-requisites because I'd failed them initially and I honestly just thought, I "wasn't the type" to do well in science courses. I resented my classmates that seemed to have all the scientific brains handed to them lol I was REALLY ON THE FENCE about getting this expensive (to a student) online course..I mean really..buy a "course" online from some dude that's talking about Stanford and that he has an "insider perspective"..it was a real hurdle to get over..plus I didn't have 500 bucks just laying around. After some prompting from my significant other I BOUGHT THE COURSE..the whole time muttering.."if this is a scam..I swear..I"m calling my mom..“. All I can say is WOW..this course takes you from a weekly "I hope I get an A" and turns it into "I hope I get the highest score in a class of 100 students" lol. I've literally become so cocky (in a good way) about my ability to get bomb grades (REGARDLESS of the class) since I've taken this course..and I'm only 60% of the way through! (it gives you a progress meter). This course takes ALLLL the guess work out of getting good grades..make no mistake..you WILL have to work your whole booty off in the front-end and you WILL have to tweak it slightly for different courses (guidance with examples on just HOW to do this is provided), but if you follow the instructions (they're simple) and don't BS, you will shock yourself, with what you can do. I haven't told Dr. P yet, but I SET THE CURVE last week on my BIO exam..the class average was a 65%!! haha! (sorry to be that guy). I couldn't believe I set the curve..like I literally asked the instructor if there was some mix-up because I felt guilty for taking a smarter students credit..I've always been the type to RELY on the curve TO PASS..not set it.. A wise man once said "never play yourself", which I take to mean: Never knowingly do something that has potential to jeopardize your future goals or ambitions. If you're REALLY trying to go to medical school and you're not confident in your ability to do well in current OR future classes OR medical school..then VALUE YOURSELF enough to pay the money and just sign up for the course..I just started this course and I haven't gotten less than 90% on ANYTHING..in my classes..feels so weird to say.. Anyway, become an "A student".. because if you're like me, I'm sure you've stressed way more than necessary about classes..time to end the stress and start having free days during the week to watch Hulu plus! (or more responsibly -to volunteer) lol Good luck!"

I took physics 2 during the summer in 6 weeks. I had already started this course before my physics class but I was so nervous about utilizing the new technique so I did my regular old studying on the first exam and pulled out a 77%. I was heartbroken and angry at myself for being so foolish. I then started to use Dr. Pinesett's teachings and on my next 2 exams and the final I was able to get As and raise my final grade to a 93%! If you want to save your GPA and get good grades then use this course! I cannot recommend it more and even sent an email out to my entire physics class telling them how I saved my grade. In addition, I started the first 2 weeks out by studying 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. By the end of the 6 weeks I was studying at most 3 hours a day 4 days a week. I literally studied less and got better grades. It was remarkable. It gave me more time on the weekends to spend with my family and not feel pressured to stay indoors and miss out on my summer fun. BEST SUMMER CLASS EVER

 Amazing. I have been struggling with my online summer classes because it was taking me so long to get through the material. I’m only 45% through this course and already my time spent drowning in material has been practically been cut in half. I’ve learned how to optimize my surroundings, cut out unnecessary time consuming habits, how to effectively schedule and plan my learning sessions. Summer I was all Cs for me.  This course has not only helped me succeed in acheiving better grades but helped me recover some of my sanity too. I work 50-55 hours as a bank manager and school was taking up every minute of my free time before this course. It would have taken years to find this information on my own.  Dr Pinesett is an amazing human being and one of the most brilliant minds I have come across in a long time.
