Each level of Educated will add +2 skill points when you gain a new experience level. This Perk works best when purchased early in your adventure.

Fallout and Fallout 2 description

Educated is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout Tactics, J.E. Sawyer's Fallout Role-Playing Game and Lionheart.


Each level of this perk grants +2 to skill point gain per level. Although the perk is theoretically attractive, the point of perks is gaining additional abilities or combat modifiers, not increasing skills. A high Intelligence already provides more than enough skill points, as do the various skill books present in the games.

The perk is even less useful in Fallout Tactics, since only ranged weapon skills really matter at a high level (Small Guns, Big Guns and Energy Weapons).
