In this book I encourage you as a student to get back to the basics of what it means to be a student, not so much in terms of the skills of reading and writing, as in attitude . All too often it is simply assumed that all you have to do is go to the classroom with pen and paper, take and memorize notes. But this is like viewing tennis as merely going to the court with a racket and a can of balls or believing you can drive if you sit behind the steering wheel of a car. The skills involved for each of these activities are much more complicated because they are connected with who you are as a learner, and you need to develop an approach that will assist you in coordinating yourself with, and honing those skills.
