I posted about this a little while ago and couldn't agree more. No matter how much I studied and as much sense as everything made while studying, my application of the knowledge was shit. Only through practice can you learn how to control your emotions while trading and execute trades intelligently.

I find that actively trading small positions and getting out quickly, even if taking losses, allows me more focus when studying. Winning and losing real money in small amounts helps fuel the research fire. I also think the experience is not linear. "If I know X then I will profit Y". It is both knowledge and trading. "That didn't work x 100 = realization and better trades". I like the saying 'You Earn or You Learn'.
