Yes, a newbie should usually try doing things the Racket Way first.

This guidance is especially helpful when the Racket Way is 
counterintuitive to the newbie (simple examples: snuggling parens, using 
mutations a lot less).

Two caveats:

* A newbie can't always tell what's the Racket Way, nor whether there 
even is an applicable Racket Way.

* Racket is not a cult.  And there is no ladder in the middle of the 
room, beneath some bananas.
