Books and experience are two main resources for people to gain knowledge. Many peoples use books as a chief means for increasing their understanding while others prefer the real experience. In my opinion, books are, in one aspect, more important.

First of all, knowledge in books is systematized and reasonably arranged. In today society, time is one of the most important force making success and books has helped people save time in retrieving information by their systematic arrangement and directly bring more benefit to people.

Secondly, whole data in books is standardized so by reading books, students can learn a lot of useful basic and professional knowledge which is very helpful for their future work and study. In several countries, many books are published by the government to be a educational tool for pupils. Furthermore, they're also the fundamentals to establish criteria for many jobs, helping employers easier to hire employees for their work.

In conclusion, I think learning from books is very useful and comfortable for students. Although getting experience is also very important in today society, books are the best way for everyone to get knowledge.
