    Please advise on an adjective that means...Thanks, teachers!

    If I want to say a person is full of knowledge, what would be the best word to describe it? Thanks, teachers! ^o^

    You could say that person is knowledgeable. Of course, you could simply say that she is really smart.

    :wink:

    If you wanted to describe them in a negative way, you can call them a 'know-all' or 'know-it-all', but I can't think of an adjective with this meaning.

    You could use "omniscient".
