Book Reviews on "Red Rubber
Duck's Learning & Study Skill Guide"
The essentials of Vandon’s “basic algebra of studying and learning” are the Association Tool, the Big Picture Tool, and the Structure Tool. The first is a method of assigning physical “triggers”
to help the learner remember list items, abstract ideas, and concrete numbers. Like a visitor to a new city, a student also needs the equivalent of a map and guidebook in order to have a glimpse of
the whole—the Big Picture—rather than meaningless parts. And in the same way that learners need a list of ingredients and steps for the process of baking a cake, the Structure Tool helps to uncover
the organization of detail in a text—the steps, hierarchies, sequences, timelines, and other
patterns of organization. Vandon caps these tools with a “going for day x” exam strategy that includes defining goals, estimating the course content and the skills needed to master it, and writing a working plan, or “roadmap to success.”
Always, Vandon pushes an active approach to learning, and his book is a model of active teaching that involves the body and the senses so as to help Bob, the student, maximize the storage of river water in the bucket and the bottle."
With a background in intellectual property law, Dan Vandon has earned law degrees in several countries, a chore that led to perfecting the tools and
techniques presented in Red Rubber Duck’s Learning & Study Skill Guide. "Red Rubber Duck's Learning & Study Skill Guide" is Dan Vandon’s personal recipe for dealing with an overflow of
information and mastering exams — challenges
faced by all students.
