The concept is very interesting, the story moves slowly but overall its a good read if you can keep up with it. Probably not other's cup of tea as seen in the comments, but it sure is my cup of coffee just like the MC of the story.

probably the most popular urban novel on qidian

but sadly it isn't that fun to read.

the research into maths is good and all, but the solutions are not presented (durh cus the author cant solve them) and all the "tech" and "math" is skipped over.

... more>> this novel, just like the author's previous work is a little nationalistic as well but that isn't really a problem because you shouldn't be reading chinsee novel if you dislike such things.

one interesting thing is that while the MC "pushes"tech forward due to him solving maths, the consequences of doing this is never shown and the MC just goes on to continuously rack in cash from awards and more. It's a little bit disappointing in this regard because he not only solves math, but many problems in other fields of study as well.

as for the MC and his family+friends, nothing ever progresses which is again, very disappointing despite how the entire universe revolves around MC. <<less

1/5 - F Tier - Can be enjoyed.

So far, it’s pretty much what you would expect from a story like this. I would say, the main selling point would be his progression through knowledge. However, the ‘drama’ in almost all cases seem superficial at best, fake, and unnecessary at worst—as if added just for that sake alone. A padding if you will, done to extend chapter count but not so much to move the plot.

The side characters, at least the ‘main side characters’ have some level of development, but minimal.... more>> Every other character comes off as one dimensional or just a quick gimmick to fill in the screen time.

The MC is the type where you are led to believe had been smart all along but just failed to put in the effort. Even after gaining his system, he sometimes smugly calls himself a genius—which isn’t wrong, it just makes one wonder ‘Why are you being so smug for?’ You were barely anything before acquiring your cheat.

This is a story to be enjoyed when you wish not to think too hard. At least, the updates are consistent at an average of about 2 a day. <<less

The author put a lot of reasearch into his story making it realistic. The plot heavely revolves around academics but its exactly this that makes it boring to read.

The university life revolves around participating in research and math. Some problemes he encounters in his work have been proven in reality and are explained in detail. Once in while he will get a mission to pick one from 3 choices, but it is obvious what he will pick everytime. Through this time he meets various people, famous scientist and solves math... more>> problems, establishing his fame and connections.

With every mission solved, he gains levels in the system. Every new level up improves his tinking capability. He sloves almost all of the missions on his own instead of relying on the System. After around 400 chapters the MC's reasearch focus shift to things that have not been done in reality.
A lot of cool stuff is created by him, unfortunately it is not much explained what influence it had on the world.

There is a little bit of drama, with people trying to steal his research, but it gets quickly solved. All of his buisness is earned with patent rights and managed by his CEO that he met in university.

If you can make it past chapter 600 the story slowly unfolds. World politics start playing a role and based on his reasearch the country starts constructing mega projects. The outline of his business empire gradually forms, with him earning several billion USD per year. Overall the pacing is slow and there is only a little bit of character development, but it gradually speeds up as the chapter count increases.

At first I thought this is one of those exciting novels. The MC sounded like a regular human would in the synopsis but he's far too different in the story.

- First of all, he's very unrelatable. His character is the template used in most "research-focused" genius you'll find in other stories.

He just doesn't show a lot of qualities that should appear in a human, you'll even think that he's some sort of a robot, the side characters have more personality and more relatable than him.

- It's repetitive. 394 chapters in... more>> and I already see a huge case of repetition. He's doing the same thing over and over again. It really failed to hold on my interest, it becomes bland the more I read while hoping that it would change, but I grew bored before that.

One important thing about a book is that you have to keep your readers interested, even if the story picks up later on, the process shouldn't be boring for the readers or else they will end up losing interest before you could even get to what might be the interesting part.

- Other than that though, I'm not really the studious type so I don't know if the detailed explanations about some scientific and mathematic stuffs in this story are bullshits or real, whatever the case, it was pretty impressive, be it bullsh*t or real. <<less

Like most novels, it has a interesting start. A few arcs or chapters in it falls off the cliff, I do like the concept but the story and character is just boring. All the guy does is study this, code that none stop and lets others take advantage of him and the system. The MC had the opportunity to study and world famous colleges yet he refuses them and stays at a no name university. Nothing really interesting happens occurs in this story; theres no face slapping, all i've seen... more>> so far are the professors and students begging the MC to do this and that, he does it and moves on the to next thing.

The author even wrote that, he, the MC is more suited to coding, writing than doing ANYTHING else in this story, because of that I'm going to stop wasting my time reading this novel. <<less

This is a modern-day sci-fi system series that starts off with the MC struggling his way through college. He arrogantly tries to stay outside passing out flyers for pocket change while wearing a mascot costume in extreme heat and has a heat stroke, which allows him to connect with his system. This system allows him to study hard and learn mathematics and science easily. He uses the ability gained from the system to score perfectly in math and completely neglects other courses required to graduate, such as history.

The MC emphasizes... more>> memorization over learning. There is a ton of reading with minimal practice and application. Anyone who's struggled with calculus, organic chemistry, or any other difficult courses but came on top of them in the end can tell you that practice problems and discussion are the ways to survival. My organic chemistry teacher, who was also the chemistry department head back when I was getting my bachelor's, always told us to keep practicing until we dropped and then to get up and practice again. This strategy was effective, albeit painful. The MC does not do that and focuses on using rote memorization to comprehend math and computer science of all things. He just reads the books and skips all the intermediate steps to quickly produce something, whether it is a thesis paper or an app. When he needs something, it falls into his lab whether it is fame, connections, money, or something else. The plot-kai is gradually becoming stronger, and the MC is coming off as overpowered, which can be entertaining for a moment but then quickly becomes boring. This really cuts the suspense and limits the opportunity readers have to cheer for the MC as he struggles and works hard. Training montages are great things.

The science and math don't necessarily make sense or agree with the rules and standards of our world. Although it's fun to read arguments from the flustered experts in computer science ranting in the comments section, anyone who is a stickler in said fields may want to turn a blind eye to some of the MC's actions and reasoning. So far, he's focused on math and computer programming.

That said, the beginning of the series is excellent at motivating people to get back into studying and self-improvement. This series came across as inspirational and made me want to get back into studying more, even though I've already graduated.

The MC appears as a genius thanks to his system, but he's still an immature college freshman who impulsively does things without planning them out. Even after the heat stroke episode, he can't seem to stay out of trouble for even a full month. Even though he doesn't plan things out, the Plot God comes to his rescue with serendipitous encounters, which I mentioned before. He never seems to face any negative repercussions of his actions, which limits his opportunity for character development.

Overall, the MC's depth is quite lacking. Even when mentioning his pitiful family, there's not much connect to them, and hardly anything has been revealed about them. The side-characters are even worse... They essentially exist as their roles rather than complex, realistic characters of their own. It's hard to develop an emotional attachment to anyone in this series thus far.

The racism and sexism are minor so far, but they are present.

Henyee Translations does an excellent job, as per usual. They could compete to be one of the best translation teams on all of Web Novel. Grammatical errors and typos are minor.

This series has an excellent start, and I even donated spirit stones to it. More recently, however, the plot feels forced and more insensible. The MC is not giving me the inspirational vibe he did in the beginning, and the story line seems to be dragging. If the series goes back to its original quality or improves on its weak points, then I may continue to read it. If the current quality stays the same or worsens, then I'll probably drop it when it goes premium. I hope this is only a temporary issue. <<less

Very Interesting to read, so far characters are being developed at a good pace. MC is getting the screen time he needs and understandings of the system are kept obscure yet understandable. The math is not heavily focused but thoroughly discussed so you can gauge the difficulty in comparison to students in other years.

A very enjoyable read.
