Chegg has a registered service mark for “a smarter way to student.”  They also formerly had a registered mark for “a better way to student,” but that mark is abandoned.

So did they register a trademark for the "Smarter way to student" slogan,
or more generally for the use of "student" as a verb? Presumably they
weren't allowed to register "student" per se. As for "Everything is
figureoutable" is apparently also the title of a "New York Times #1
Bestseller" that I must have missed last fall:
