Success in studying and learning has a lot to do with taking results-driven action. Regardless of what other people may have told you in the past, forget the standard comments about “luck.”
Instead, take the time and learn some simple but highly effective studying and learning techniques.

Tackling your daily study tasks and succeeding in tests and exams has much to do with the intelligent use of some basic mental tools; and those tools are pretty easy to understand. In my book Red Rubber Duck's Learning & Study Skill Guide, I focus on three important tools that I consider to be the basic algebra of the art of studying and learning: the Association Tool, the Big Picture Tool and the Structure Tool. My personal experience is that using these three tools will help boost your ability to digest information. More importantly, they can also facilitate the recall of information on demand, which you know is crucial during an exam.
