Can you drive a car by reading a book about it?

Many emphasize too much up on memorizing definitions of various subjects, theories and other related things. According to me it is good to know about them but too much emphasize on memorizing definitions will have an adverse impact up on students learning process.

Learning by heart will limit the knowledge of the students by preventing them from reading extra materials such as novels, newspapers, magazines, and other useful books that are interesting students hence I suggest all the students to read and understand deeply the exact meaning and purpose of a particular definition, not to memorize them merely for the sake of tests and examinations. Try to read a lot about various issues instead of memorizing one or two definitions. Reading various matters will increase your reading speed, Improve your vocabulary, enhance your analysis power and expand your general knowledge.
