Books are more significant than experience, but we can't live apart from it.

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? (IELTS Exam)
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience


Knowledge is multisource in our life. One of these sources are books the other source for Human beings is experience. It is clear that books are not the unique source of knowledge and recognition but they are the most important source.

First, books are inevitable an essential tool for learning because they actually elicit and conclude the experiences, efforts, stories, cultures and civilizations of peoples all over centuries in the world. For example, reading history books or novels give the human a huge pieces of information about social life in different countries over past times. Second, those books are authored and written by influential figures in societies such as scientists, researchers, scholars, and politicians in all arenas of life. Reading scientific or economic books for instance, increase your information about biology, physics or business that are based on searching results and precise criteria. As a result, these books can be source of laws and rules for government and officials to manage and administrate their societies in all aspects.

On the other hand, it is right the fact that human learns from his experience by participating in several situations in his lives that are not mentioned in books. However, this experience benefits and influence one person only ,who faced difficulties, struggled to achieve his dreams and attempted to change his life but not the other people. For example, if anyone set up a business and failed, he will not follow the same pattern in managing his work next time. Otherwise he will put a new plan by avoiding the mistakes he done first time. This undocumented event highlighted the personal situation of one person in economic status not the life of all people and not in all fields of knowledge.

In conclusion, books are an intrinsic source of knowledge and more significant than experience but that does not mean that we can live without or dispense with our daily brush.

Need a bit eye-catching statement to attract the readers. Let me give a try:
Humans' best companion in search of knowledge is perhaps books. By reading books, people will be able to broaden their horizons on many aspects. The most fundamental lessons in our real life, however, are sometimes cannot be learned without experiencing it. As such, it is clear that people cannot learn everything only from books, experience is equally important as a source of learning.

Hope this helps.

I think experience is the better source to get knowledge than any other source. Because books are just collection of words. We can simply write. But it is not that much easy to prove. We always remember the things that we experienced than we read.

Your essay is well written, but could benefit from some development.

the most important source...

Your intro should mention the contribution of experience, ad outlined in your paragraph about it!

our daily brush...

Again inthe conclusion, you merely touch on the experience issue. You actually give equal paragraph time to both and so should thoroughly mention it in the conclusion.

Your grammar and vocabulary are good, as is punctuation. You merely need to expand on your intro and conclusion in terms of mentioning the human experience angle. This would more fairly encompass what you expound upon in the body paragraphs.

Good start!
