He already got college credits from high school and studying at Berkeley, this important detail is nowhere found in the article.
I've also found that most of the advice sounds great but is hard to impossible to apply.
He appears to be exceptionally clever but a term paper on math and engineering problems are not written with a 12h marathon on the weekend, at least not on my university.
Can anyone recommend serious advice?
He's currently doing a year-long experiment where he's attempting to complete a 4-year MIT Computer Science course in 12 months.
