That's true my friend, every time you make mistakes in your life that's experienced that you want not to do it again. You will refrain yourself on doing it that in the future like working in many things.

yeah, that's right. when you experience what you have learned, it will also sink in more into your mind. do you have a learning experience that you can never forget?.. thank you for your response.

Experience is a great way to learn. As a matter of fact, it is the best way. Of course, it is good to study about things and know how they work. But without the hands on experience, you just don't really know. I think it is nice to talk to other people who have had an experience, and that will help you be more prepared when you get ready to do something for the first time. But afer you have done something for the first time, the second time you go to do it, it is a lot easier. And the more often that you do something the easier it gets. Just like my job, for the first couple of months of doing this job I found it a bit challenging. I thought it was really hard to do the work very fast. I really wanted to be good and get everything done before the end of the day. Now, that I have been doing the job for quite a few months now, it seems a bit easier. Of course, since we are using a new computer system, sometimes new things come up that no one has ever dealt with before. When these things come up, I try to figure out how to do it. The first few times it is a little difficult, but it gets easier every time. I hope that this information is a bit helpful to you kharlav. Have a great day, and happy learning.

Experience is the ONLY teacher, not only the best teacher. All advices -- spoken or written -- can only tell things to increase your understanding. But until you actually do try it one or more times, you can't say that you have learned it. Being able to understand something is superficial; being able to do it on your own is the REAL thing. So experience is supreme. It has no substitute.

yeah, reading and hearing from other are limited, and you most likely forget it. we remember experience more than what we hear or read. thank you for your response. Happy mylotting.

Experience is the best teacher. I realized that I learned a lot when I experience to repair more pc. I did not learn it during my school days. I did not remember what I learned in school. But all I learn in my experience in repairing pc, I remember them. Like in our life, we learn because we experience it. Still the best teacher is experinece not our school teacher.
