Now a days students are learning maximum through books. Practical knowledge is very less in many of the institutions. What we have learned through books is to be applied in practicals. But in some cases this is not possible. If we learn thruogh practice it make an impact on our mind. so we can't able to forget the theory learned. So,I prefer practical knowledge rather than bookish knowledge.

all i could say is that there are things that you learn something new and different from books and you learn something new and different from experience. there are some things that you can only learn if you experienced it and not everything you need to learn can only be taken from experience, you need books too. so i would say why not get the best of both worlds. get all that you can learn from books and your experiences. i'm sure both would help you out a lot.
