## Notes - From the book [The Unfair Advantage](/the-unfair-advantage), having a good education is a vast Unfair Advantage. - Formal education happens at school or university, while informal education is the education you undertake yourself of your choice. - Knowledge, network, and signaling are the three main benefits of a good education. ### Knowledge - It's the purpose of education what you learn in school, which includes literacy, mathematics, and facts - and then more profound and more specialized at university. ### Network - When you go to university, you'll meet others who have also managed to gain entry into that university who are intelligent and driven. ### Signaling - It's the same as credentialing, which shows others that you have the skills and intelligence for specific jobs. - It also means status if you to an elite university. It gives you immediate credibility. ## References - [The Unfair Advantage](/the-unfair-advantage)
