 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.

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

Do you find yourself doing well in some classes and struggling mightily in others?
Do you procrastinate and avoid studying whenever possible? When you finally actually study do you suffer from S.O.D. (Sudden Onset Drowsiness)?
Do you struggle with time management and feel like you never have enough time to get through all the material?
Do you study your heart out only to get to the exam and see a bunch of stuff you overlooked?
Do you find that no matter how hard you study, when test time arrives you become insanely nervous and everything you learned escapes you?

FAQ's

This course is a complete system for studying smart that will reduce your stress, make you an independent learner and dramatically improve your academic performance. No more tutors, no more cramming sessions, and no more test anxiety!

This course is for any student, of any age who wants to be successful.

After this course, you will have the skills and confidence to successfully tackle any class.

All A’s are not equal. You may be getting great grades, but if it is taking up all of your time, then you need to get more efficient. I want you to be getting straight A’s, and studying half as much as you are now. In college, I was able to get grades good enough to get into Stanford Medical School only studying 10 hours per week, total! Student who have gone through the 5 Pillars have gotten A’s studying even less than that. This course is not just about getting the top grades, it is about getting the top grades with less stress and less time spent studying so that you can have a fun and enjoyable college experience.

Although I am a doctor and a Stanford medical school graduate, I was not always an elite student. In fact, I consistently under-performed, so much so that I graduated high school with a measly 3.3 GPA and after my first year of college I was told I didn’t have what it took to get into medical school. I devoted myself to learning everything I could about learning and studying and then I spent a ton of time practicing and refining strategies. This course represents the complete study system I developed over the past 15 years. I used it in college to get grades good enough to get into Stanford Medical School. I used it in medical school and scored in the top 10% of students on my medical licensing exams. I know that some students struggle more than others, don’t worry, that just means you have more room to improve. I have taught it to all sorts of students, and they have all reduced their stress, are more organized, utilize their time more effectively and improve their grades. If you are someone who has struggled a lot, it will just take you a little longer to get to the top, but you can do it!

Absolutely not! First, I do not teach tips, tricks or any other gimmick. I believe that meaningful and lasting improvement can only occur with a comprehensive plan, executed fervently. This course is a complete system for improving every facet of your studying. The 5 Pillars work together to synergistically boost your performance. Second, you will not find anything like this on the internet, or anywhere else for that matter. I am a true learning and studying expert who has been invited to speak at universities and conferences around the world, including at universities like UCLA, Rutgers and Stanford.

The earlier you get informed and get the tools you need the more your life trajectory changes. Also, I want my students to never stop learning and improving. Therefore, all my courses come with lifetime access, lifetime upgrades. I want my students to transform and absolutely DOMINATE everything they do!

Absolutely! No matter what you are majoring in or what your career goal is, this course can help. Premed coursework is amongst the most difficult college coursework. Therefore, if you aren’t a premed, this course will help you be extremely efficient and get the grades you want in a lot less time.

This course is the key to dominating medical school. This system allowed me to finish in the top 5% of my Stanford Medical School class while not having to study on any weekends. I have countless medical students who are enrolled in this course and using it to efficiently manage the huge amount of material and the lightning fast pace of medical school. If you are about to start medical school or are currently not performing as well as you would like, this is the help you’ve been looking for.

This course is appropriate for high school students, community college students, college students and students in any graduate school. This course is the most versatile study system ever created and works at any academic level and in any class.

The transition back into school is rough for non-traditional students because it has been so long since the last time they had to study for classes and because most non-traditional students have additional obligations like work and family. The 5 Pillars will teach you how to organize yourself, how to get life under control and how to make the transition a snap.

It takes some of the principles and strategies from the 5 Pillars and combines them with other research-based and experience-proven techniques to create the ultimate MCAT study system.

Yes. Many students live in utter chaos never knowing what the day may bring and just how much procrastination they are going to suffer from. The end result is these students always feel like they don’t have enough time and like they are out of control. A study schedule defends from chaos, and this course teaches you my innovative prioritization, to-do list and scheduling systems. It’s the solution to your procrastination problem.

Yes! The key to deeper understanding and long-lasting retention is repetition. And if you don’t have proper notes, you can’t get your repetitions in. This course teaches you a system for taking clear and concise notes that you will look forward to reviewing because they make your studying so active and engaging.

Yes! This system creates independent learners. A major part of that is teaching students not only how to read fast, but how to organize their reading and make it highly effective and efficient. Most students are scared of the textbook because they don’t know how to access the information and synthesize their own meaning. In this course, you will learn my innovative Radical Reading Routine that will turn you into a super reader.

Yes! So many students suffer from crippling test anxiety. After this course, test anxiety and test underperformance will be a thing of the past. I will teach you proven techniques for managing stress and anxiety before test day and on test day so that you will start looking forward to test day. And then once the test starts, you will have high-level problem solving and test-taking skills to execute to perfection.

I have many students with learning disabilities and physical disabilities.

If you have a disability, you are at a disadvantage. In order to overcome a major disadvantage, you need a major solution, and that is this course. It will teach you how to work and study differently in every way from how you schedule your time, to how you read, to how you take notes and even how you approach life. With the 5 Pillars you can be certain that you have everything you need to succeed despite your disability.

I supported myself in college by starting a tutoring company. But, my company wasn’t the typical tutoring company because I didn’t teach students individual subjects or help them with their homework. Instead, I taught students how to study, how to approach their classes and how to become independent learners. I was able to charge almost $300 an hour for my services. Why were parents begging to pay me that much to work with their students? Because I worked with my students to make sure that after 3-6 months, not only would they not need me anymore, but they wouldn’t need tutoring ever again. Crazy, right? Well, I have taken the same approach with this course, I want you to be an independent student who doesn’t need anyone, including tutors and even teachers. Students who have taken my 5 Pillars of Studying Less & Getting Better Grades course have been able to stop going to lecture and office hours, they literally don’t need the professor. They are independent because they learned how to identify the high-yield, testable concepts and how to efficiently teach themselves the material. Not having to attend lectures and office hours to have the professor teach them has opened up hours and hours of free time in their schedule they never had before. Time they use to study more, or more commonly they use to have more fun with friends and family.

I am a true learning expert and educational visionary. I want your experience with this course to be life-changing and long lasting. Results vary, but you will definitely see some immediate gains from the course within a few weeks. Many students go from low grades to getting mostly B’s or even mostly A’s in just one school term. However, I don’t want you to focus on quick gains, because then you will fall victim to quick fixes that aren’t sustainable. My course makes you better term after term, and the longer you apply the strategies, the more refined and effective you become. This is really cool because that means there truly is no limit to how great you can become.

You should enroll in this course TODAY. The sooner you get into this course, the sooner you can start implementing the system, tweaking it to fit you perfectly and refining your processes to become your absolute best. Waiting to enroll until you are struggling in classes is a mistake. Why struggle, why stress when you can have fun learning and dominate your classes without even breaking a sweat? Save yourself the trouble and get in the course now so you can start working your way to greatness and top grades.

No, I DO NOT offer refunds. Why? 3 reasons!

    • Because I am an expert in mindset training. By not offering refunds for my courses, I force students to think long and hard about enrolling. Then they have to make a firm decision to enroll. This creates mental buy-in and students fully commit to doing the work and getting better. Commitment is the key to Success.
    • The commitment is so important because what I teach is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what most students learn about studying and academic success. Things that are different or challenge our belief systems can be aversive and cause us to want to quit or reject the teaching. Case and point, my study course is called The 5 Pillars of Studying Less & Getting Better Grades. I have had university administrators buck at the title and ask if it is an error. I laugh, and then explain that although most people think the more students study the better they learn, it is not true because as they advance in their education, they aren’t able to create more time and then they feel overwhelmed and their performance suffers. By teaching students to study as little as possible (I myself only studied 10 hours total per week in college) it allows students to live a life of joy, abundance and efficiency such that they always have the time and energy they need to perform. By forcing students to think about and then commit to using my course, then they will not disregard the teaching, they will dive in and they will succeed!
    • My courses are research-based and experience-proven. I am a true learning and student performance expert. I have worked with thousands of students and across the board, students who are willing to learn and willing to put in the work, get the RESULTS! I’m committed to bringing my students the best teaching, innovative strategies and unflinching support. I am committed to making their dreams come true, so I demand that they also commit to making their dreams come true.

"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

"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!

"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."

Cee G
Excellent

"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!

"After reading testimonials and hearing Dr. Pinesett's story, I was convinced that I needed to sign up for his course. I wasn't the best student in my undergrad, so I knew that in order to start a career in the medical field, I had to make some drastic changes with my study habits. The price of the course is honestly worth every penny! I can't wait to be a better student and DOMINATE every class! Thank you so much Dr. Pinesett for your hard work, dedication and tough love approach that will help others in the long run!"

Joyce C
This course has SNATCHED MY EDGES!

"Do not get hung up on all the 5 star reviews. This is not Amazon or some online shopping site. This is the real deal. Finding and using the right resources is often what makes us different from another. The course not only shows you exactly what you need to succeed academically, but it also gives you the tools to live the way you want to live. That's powerful. "

Chris Wu
A Course for Your Life

"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!"

Cortney Doyle
AWESOME COURSE!!!!!!!!

"To start, I would like to just thank you to Dr. Pinesett for this amazing course. I just finished watching the series and evaluating myself so I can start changing all the things I have been doing that hinders my chances of being 100 percent successful. This will not all happen overnight but implmenting this course and utilizing the "human tool box" will allow me overtime to be the best student that I can be and ultimately dominate the rest of my undergrad, mcat, and lead me to slam the front door open to get into the medical school of my choosing. Dr. Pinesett is just an amazing guy who truely cares for all his students. I cannot say enough good things....if your thinking of getting in this class do it!!! It will change your life too!!"

Jonathan Parker
Life Changing!!!

"First I checked out the 21 Days to Stanford because it was half off. Then I found out there was a payment plan option for the bigger courses. 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."

Sasha Cannon
Amazing

"The 5 Pillars of Studying Less and Getting Better Grades" course is one of the best investments a pre-med student can make. After completing this course, I saw a drastic improvement in my grades and overall happiness. I am no longer as stressed out about academics and have more time for the things I enjoy. "

Casey Torres
PLEASE SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS and ENROLL ASAP.

"This course has extensive details on how to get your gears grinding. If you struggle with focusing, studying, or test anxiety; you need this. If you are motivated and passionate about school then the five pillars will give you that one up you need to start DOMINATING and getting ahead of the game. Dr. Pinesett is extremely knowledgable; by doing his research and providing FACTS as to why some methods we use as students do not work he opened my eyes. "

Jenny Hassan
Must have for students who want to excel!!

"Absolutely loved the course. I was able to learn so much. I will be implementing all the different techniques I learned into my studying. Thank you Dr. Pinesett!"

Tahreem Kamal
Loved the course

"As a nontraditional student I am always looking for ways to maximize my studying time and efficiency. This course fine tuned my skill set and introduced new methods that I had never thought of before. An absolute must for any student, not just in college but even middle and high school students. The course content alone is worth the money, but then you also get the added support from the webinars and the discussion group! Dr. Pinesett is a driving force of motivation and accountability. He will help you with the tools and is the first to tell you that ultimately your success depends on you. If you are interested in taking one of his courses and are not sure where to start, this is it. This course alone will put you on the path to success."

Jessie Bloomer
Wow! Just WOW!

"In this course, Dr. Pinesett delves deep into the intricacies and details in becoming a master studier. He also provides a logical, yet super motivational approach to learning and tackling any type of material, regardless of how dense and complicated it might be. I wish this course was available when I was in undergrad! I love how Dr. Pinesett challenges us to aim and to never settle- this is key if you want to succeed. This course isn't for students that just want to survive in school. It's for those that want to DOMINATE. In fact, many of these concepts in this course can be applied to our personal lives as well. Although I would say this is my go-to resource for study success, I am going to challenge myself to become even a better master studier than the great Dr. Pinesett! For anyone that is on the fence about taking this course, DO IT. You won't be disappointed at all!"
