With the Educated perk, you gain two more skill points every time you advance in level. This perk is best taken early on, to maximize its effectiveness.

— In-game description, Fallout 3

Educated is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

Effects[edit | edit source]

This perk provides +2 skill points per level, as in classic games. It has marginally more utility than in Fallout 3, as there are far fewer skill books to provide bonus points (52, 65 with add-ons) and the level 50 cap provides a total of 92 skill points. However, the higher level cap also provides more skill points, ultimately reducing the utility of Educated.
