Study Less, Study Smart – An Hour Of Sage Advice Packed Into 6 Minutes

If you’ve ever went looking for study advice on YouTube, you’ve probably run across a video called “Study Less, Study Smart.”

This video is a recorded lecture by Dr. Marty Lobdell, a former psychology professor at Pierce College, and has almost 500,000 views. It’s one of the most well-known study advice videos that’s come out in the last few years.

As a student, I often tried to watch it – but since it’s an hour long, my attention would wander. While Dr. Lobdell’s teaching style is engaging, the context of YouTube doesn’t always lend itself to videos of that length.

So, in this week’s video, I’ve attempted to cover 80-90% of the most useful, actionable advice from Dr. Lobdell’s lecture in just 6 minutes.
