Which specific type of meditation increases learning?
I'm getting ready for school this February and I want to improve my learning abilities (attention, memory, concentration, intelligence, etc).
Please recommend me an article, guide, self help program, that can increase this ability over a short period of time. Thanks

The short answer is nothing will. You can't subcontract out repairs for your perceived 'deficiencies'.
What you can do is find out from within yourself why you want to learn. Every night before you fall asleep, dwell on the question. If the answer you get is anything but "I'm on a mission to achieve XYZ and I need to get through these steps in order to achieve my mission" then you likely will meander through your learning like so many others do every day. Most people learn without an internally derived reason to because the educational system inadvertently stamps out any internal passion by its need to conform to standards. What is your reason? If it is because the law/mum/dad requires it then you need to fix that part first.
If you can't fix that part right now then it doesn't really matter, you can't get caught into the idea that formal learning is a once-only opportunity. I did very little high school because the time wasn't right for me. At age 25 I began and completed a four year BE mechatronics because that is what I wanted to achieve and there was none of the structure of high school to ruin it.
I got a lot of information and encouragement from watching "The Wall" by Roger Waters/Pink Floyd. It is a semi-autobiographical account of his life and something I relate to closely.
Find your passion first and everything else will align itself with that. This is a fairly fundamental concept that is true for all activities. Where your passion is corrupted by your upbringing/subconscious then address that as required so it doesn't derail you.
