A study group is a small group of people who regularly meet to discuss shared fields of study. … Often, a leader who is not actively studying the material will direct group activities. Some colleges actively set up study group programs for students to sign up.
While study groups can be a great resource for learning class information, still take the time outside of class and your group study to put in work on your own. There might be certain aspects of the material from class that will be easier to understand if you go over it by yourself. Then, you can bring what you know to the study group and help other members.
One of the most effective ways to prepare for class discussions, tests and exams is by using a study group. Study groups provide a number of benefits to the learning process. As such, many college professors agree that group study enhances students’ performance.
Why does it work? In a group environment, you’re less likely to procrastinate and are also forced to become more organized. Group study also encourages you to explain things aloud. By speaking to and listening to others, you often improve on recall ability, or ability to remember information on test day. Group members have many perspectives and will always bring up ideas and thoughts you’d never considered.
Finally, you’ll likely find that the benefit of group study reaches far beyond good results on tests. It will build self-confidence that you can use for the rest of your life. Speaking to small groups will prepare you for speaking to larger groups in the future—or more official groups such as college admission panels or hiring boards for a job
