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
