Here's how I figured it, assuming with DLC
545 skill points with max special (by the Almost Perfect perk and bobbleheads), quest perks, skill bobbleheads, tagged skills
a 755 skill point defecit.
there are 324 skill books in the game
which we can derive:
431 skill points to earn with leveling when seeking all books without the Comprehension perk
107 skill points to earn with leveling when seeking all books with the Comprehension perk
Yields of skill points of 29 level ups at starting INT:
10 INT + educated at lvl 4 = 658
10 INT = 580
4 INT + educated at lvl 4 = 484
5 INT = 435
4 INT = 406
So with this info, we can see the various ways to a perfect character:
Requiring the least books = 10 INT + Educated + Comprehension
Plan your perks, see if you need to adjust the INT for special points. You can ditch one of the perks if you really must have a different perk, but it sort of destroys the purpose of sparing yourself the book hunting.
"Perkless" = 5 int
Minimum INT to max you out without Comprehension or Educated, but requires up to 320 books. That's nearly all of them.
Requiring the least INT = 3 INT + INT bobblehead at lvl 2 or Intense Training INT + [comprehension and/or educated]
Yields 483 points with educated, and 405 without. I presume taking the bobblehead results in an imperfect character ending with 9 INT, but you could easily just get addicted to Mentats to remedy that. ;P

To start I couldn't make myself lower any attribute below 5, though many will tell you to trash Charisma. I just added some to INT, AGL and PER as I like the skills those help.
I would tag Small Guns, Repair and Lockpick as those (in my experience) are used the most.
While leveling add some skill points to Medicine, Science and Sneak as those are also helpful.
For perks early on it’s great to pick those that boost skills, but late in the game those are a complete waste as you would have 100’s in all your useful skills anyway. So you have to decide do you play giving yourself an easier time early or play to give yourself useful bonuses that last throughout the game (perks that give abilities you couldn’t have otherwise).
