  2. Knowledge is power. We grasp knowledge by concentrating on thing's of value. If we memorize information before an exam chances are we will forget what is needed due to stress, and wanting to do well. But if we learn the information, if we know the fact's, then we will have the know-ledge. Mike Nash out!
