Learn More, Study Less (MIT in 1 year)

Learn More, Study Less by Scott H Young @ TED

MIT Challenge

He has studied complete MIT undergrad curriculum in computer science available online for free, that includes videos of lectures, tests and exercises, and then tested himself on real exams that are also available with solutions on MIT, and in less than a year. The "trick?": online can speed up or skip lectures, and focus only on effective materials and labs.

"...the most effective method is intensive practice combined with trying to form deep intuitions about the principles involved, then this matters a great deal. Because this is also the foundation you can learn anything from"

He also traveled with a friend in 4 countries for 3 months each, to learn language.
Apparently that worked well also, since they used immersive, "no English" learning.
