[LINK] Mastering Linear Algebra in 10 Days: Astounding Experiments in Ultra-Learning

Scott Young com­pleted the four-year MIT com­puter sci­ence de­gree cur­ricu­lum in less than one year. This is a post about how he did it.

Dur­ing the year­long pur­suit, I perfected a method for peel­ing those lay­ers of deep un­der­stand­ing faster. I’ve since used it on top­ics in math, biol­ogy, physics, eco­nomics and en­g­ineer­ing. With just a few mod­ifi­ca­tions, it also works well for prac­ti­cal skills such as pro­gram­ming, de­sign or lan­guages.

Here’s the ba­sic struc­ture of the method:

  1. Coverage

  2. Practice

  3. Insight
