It has been said, “Not everything that is learned is contained in books.” Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?
[b]Usually in the life, people can detect that not everything that is learned is contained in books. Because people should feel the difference about theory that says in books not manifest at all in the life. People need the process of real event to learn and acquire experience. So I think that both sources are important for our everyday life. Because these situations, both sources cannot be away from the other, it is important the combination of both.
Knowledge gained from books almost always say phrases or passages about theory, event logical, methods or something else like hypothesis to check. For example, administration’s book teaches people knowledge about many types of methods to organize and administrate the enterprise, but people do not see how to apply in real cases; in other hand, knowledge gained from experience leads people’s actions, feeling and thought to treat. For example, people find different ways of relating to others in the business, but if people do not learn which type of methods exist so they should not apply.
In the combination of the two sources, either the knowledge learned from books or experience could be the best form for our tasks. Because if only one of the above mentioned sources does not integrated with the other, people should not learn complete knowledge, less to find the priority method to route. For example, when people learn knowledge about administration’s method in the University, the student could not combine theory with real event. Because could be that the student facing different situations with the books said, so at this moment he should not know which type of administration’s method is better for the situation. [/b]
