It seems that technology is growing at an exponential rate often giving one the feeling we are left well behind from a knowledge point of view.

Do you think it is a good idea to continue to study throughout one's life?

Yes, definitely. Life is all about learning. You don't need to be doing formal study to learn, just paying attention.
I think humans are ALWAYS learning, it's a matter of whether we continue to do structured studying or not. I haven't studied for about 8yrs now, and I don't think I'll ever study in an institution again but I'll be learning as long as I'm alive!
I agree with Meggf. However in the career department it is almost a requirement. Besides that..studying can be fun.
The Internet now is the tool of choice for me, I am amazed quite a great deal.....at just What! is being done..
Some is good, some is scary!
I agree with Jennifer. Life is all about learning, but not necessarily in a formal setting.

There seems to be so much pressure in today's job market to have all the papers and certification. It is almost a given that if you want to excel in a career that continued learning is important. However, there are also areas which you can learn from which you can't necessary get in a book. I guess it is the direction one chooses and the balance one wants.
Yes I think so but then again I'm quite nerdy and I love learning new things.

With my job, I have to participate in continuing education conferences as to stay up to date with the latest technology and medicine in my field of work. (I work in the veterinary industry).

But I think it is a good idea for everyone to educate themselves to the highest degree. It keeps your mind active and fights boredom.
I agree with Vee.
Absolutely. You can never know enough.
I enjoy 'hobby studying', no exams whatsoever, of various subjects in which I'm interested with DVD's from 'The Great Courses'!
I think it is vital to keep learning until we die.
If you are asking about study in a formal sense- then I don't think that is necessary for everyone. I Iike to think my doctor is up to date on the latest research and techniques. The same would apply to many professions.
As a child I remember my parents discussing professional students . People who gain one degree after another but don't seem to put them to use in a practical way. I don't think that is a good idea because the student misess out on the life lessons and common sense skills that we learn from doing a wide variety of things.
As with many things - balance is key..
