After suffering from a heat stroke while working under the scorching heat of summer, Lu Zhou, a hardworking but poor university student, somehow becomes the owner of an advanced technological system. With the cheat given by the system, his university life changes overnight.

A Master’s degree? Easy.

PhD? Not a problem.

From a nobody, he quickly becomes a huge celebrity in the world of science. With the missions given by the system, he is on his way to winning a Nobel Prize.

The author is at the very least well read in various aspects of theory in Math and to some degree science. He offers several conjectures and other theoretical problems up as part of his writing content. Like most authors who do the same he gives the basic problem and then suggests that his MC has solved the problem through some unconventional means and offers a bit of those means to provide some authenticity.

Unfortunately the author interjects politics into the story as well as some atheist beliefs. The atheist beliefs can... more>> be said to be part of the MC's character as he is supposed to be some academic wonder-kid, but the presence of his gold-finger kind-of creates a problem for his disbelief in a higher power. As for his political interjections they are jarring at best though fortunately they are rare and more of a side comment.

The normal nationalistic parts seem to be missing in this story to a large degree or they are much more subtle then in many similar types of stories. Interestingly enough the MC seems to have less desire to be involved in China's politics and wants to avoid the nationalism that seems to be required. He is still desirous of keeping China's economy in Chinese hands which is a much more subtle approach. The author still incorporates some of the nationalism with his other characters that have influence on the MC. Of note the normal desire to bring glory to one's country by being the first of one's country to accomplish some task or get some award or create some breakthrough or make one's own country have massive advances in several fields is definitely present in this story. This to me is a normal for all authors that work with modern times and the current world as the background template for their stories. I see this sort of 'nationalism/racism/groupism' all the time, and while not truly acceptable as quality storytelling it is always to be expected. This problem could really only be solved when the author actively decides to make his MC of an apposing nationality such as a Chinese person using Japan or Korea as the background nation with the MC being of Japanese or Korean decent. When doing something of this nature it brings in other problems of authenticity as the author is not going to really be able to tell a story from the viewpoint of a person of an opposing nation. <<less

Although this novel is not the best, I must admit that it is unique in its own way. But I am very disappointed in this novel, As per chapter 1400++, I just very disappointed the decision made by the MC.

... more>>

tldr: I hate the typical trope in cn novel where MC decided to leave everything behind to advance to the next realm

Spoiler alert again!
In mars, "an alien" gave MC 2 choices.
1. Go back to earth and progress according to the current state.
2. Leave everything behind, and "jump" to the unknown future + MC will be given some legacy.
Well, eventually he choose the latter. Actually he didn't know how much time will pass after the "jump". Because he choose to "jump", the outside world declared that he went missing, and eventually declared dead..

Long story short he went to the next century, that is year 2125. Everything he know is gone. His parent, his sister, his company, his friends, and his fiancee. Everything..

I hate the fact that, before he went to mars, MC promised to his fiancee that they will get married after he came back to earth, But eventually that stay as an unfulfilled promise.
And how his company, his legacy fell apart after "bad management".
And how he learned that his closest student failed to become a great mathematician.

And lastly a quote from our MC, "I always thought that feelings are the burden of rationality."

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.

Generally I like anything related to system (* something * system e.g : the strongest system, ultimate scheming system etc.). They are generally fun to read and easy to read too. Don't have to be logical but they provide maximum comedy and fun face slapping experiences.

This time around when I found Scholar's Advance Technological System (SATS or simply SAT-system) without thinking much I jumped to read it and starting chapters were quite good but later it became only academic related no link to real life. MC only chooses the... more>> good mission (not from my view point) , he only choose for himself and hardly found anything difficult yet.

What I found not good enough:

  1. MC literally forgets his life style after he gets the system. Its bound to change his life style but what about his EQ?? His EQ became -ve all of sudden. His conversation with normal classmates and opposite gender is below below average. No comedic vibe at all.
  2. No interaction with system. MC tries to talk with system but gets zero response ?? Author needs to improve it or it feels more of a bland taste when you read it. [Its like someone assigns you mission and after finishing you get rewarded. no other interaction...... no information........ most importantly no system upgrade, it like system is at its peek]
  3. Rewards : getting garbage chance is like 80 % or 90% but he gets garbage hardly. GP (general points) : only uses while solving problems and there is no other option to exchange them except for sub branch technology tree, which is again can be level up using normal method too.
  4. He gets 3 missions to choose from why??? He always chooses most benefiting one. why all other option have to vanish ?? mission should be mandatory for some cases like when he participate in some competition.
  5. SAT-system gives him mission for his life style but he hardly chooses them. [exercise, get a girlfriend, basket ball throws etc. ]
  6. He hardly do any exercise but he is quite fit and conduct his research and all for days ??? really SAT system did not enhance his body. He is the man who fainted from heat stroke and now he did not faint from over working. [10- thesis in a month, while doing modelling practice ?? ]. I get it someone will say he plays basket ball sometimes but still he neglects his health aspect like he is a super human.
  7. Last but not the least, MC did not manage his business properly. He gets everything for granted, hardly felt like he was poor in the story-line.
If you read something like this and have no humor, no sarcasm, no slice of life then you will feel like sleeping not fun at all.

rating : 2/5. at best I can give 2.5 / 5 not more. <<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

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

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.

This story is FANTASTIC! If you LOVE good sci-fi, with technical jargon and attention to detail. You WILL love this story.

It's 'system' trope is actually no more or less than the 'super computer' in brain trope that you get from reading other sci-fi novels like the ones from David Weber's classic Raj Whitehall series. Here it's less action and more drama. Also if you liked the Safehold Series by David Weber, you may like this too. Since there is a good sprinkle of science mixed with the fiction.

Enough science to... more>> make it seem REAL and enough fiction to draw you into the story.

So give it a read. I myself, have found a good gem on webnovel/qidian.

edit: up to 336 Now.

I'm still liking it. Between 209-336 our MC is still a virgin. (sorry. spoiler there) Still clueless about women and stuff like that. Pretty much normal there. Most guys are. Only super OP male alpha's get all the chicks. So if you want that here... go elsewhere. Our MC is slowly building his technical empire. The amount of attention to technical detail is still there and not so overwhelming that I am totally clueless. Good hard science FICTION is like that. So if you are a fan of hard science fiction, where it seems more real than fake... give this a read.

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.

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
