What is the difference between effective and efficient?
I have checked these two words in the dictionary, but they translated them into the same Chinese word. I am very confused about how to use them>
Thanks for your help!
yangxin appears to have the meaning correctly.
efficient basically means the something is done without waste. For example an efficient car uses less fuel.
effective basically means that it has done something adequately. For example an effective medicine effects a cure.
