Nowadays, various kinds of reference books for college students have come into existence. And many students gain so much that they soon find themselves totally relying on these books.
It should be admitted that reference books have brought great convenience to students. And conversely, overreliance on these books has also caused negative effects. Firstly, students who have got reference books are more likely to believe all the contents in the books and neglect teachers instructions.
Secondly, with reference books, many students tend to be absent from class and become lazy to think about how to solve problems on their own. Last but not least, there are so many different kinds of reference books that a great number of low quality ones are also among them, which will lead to students confusion.
As a college student, I agree that reference books are of great use in our pursuit of knowledge. However, it is not sensible to rely on them too much. After all, reference books will never replace what we are able to obtain from teachers and classes.
