Forming Study Groups

One of the best ways to review during the week or before an exam is with a study group. One of the biggest advantages to a study group is that you get to listen to the information from another person's perspective.

 

When you decide to form a group, keep in mind the following qualities that identify an effective study group.

* Everyone who attends the study group should make a commitment to come prepared.

* Make sure you all agree on a location which is advantageous to studying.

* Don't hesitate to address issues which are difficult and hard to understand. Difficult concepts must be addressed for thorough comprehension.

* Group members ought to be classmates. A workable group does not require that the members be friends.

* Always have a plan before you come together to study. Study goals are always important.

It is not necessary to belong to a study group for every class. However, you will find that for your more difficult subjects, verbal analysis and input from others will help.
