@daniel-goncalves, Knowledge is a product of Intelligence , our educational system reward the people who have a good memory , and they usually do well school , cause that´s what school is all about , just remembering facts , applying formulas and adapt to the system.

“They say he have good grades he must be smart” . Well Maybe , but having good grades is basically remembering facts , So he is not necessary smart .

Memory is just a little part of the intelligence and having a good memory is very useful , but the true knowledge comes from thinking for yourself , being observer , making associations , etc…

Knowledge of just remembering stuff is superficial and not very worthy , but knowledge of understanding what they really are talking about is very useful , And can serve as a root of taking conclusions and more useful knowledge.
