  • Tips to succeed in Study

    Use study groups effectively

    Ever heard the phrase two heads are better than one Well this can be especially true when it comes to studying. Working in groups enables you to 1 get help from other students when youre struggling to understand a concept, 2 complete assignments more quickly, and 3 teach others whereby helping both the other student and yourselve to internalize the subject matter. However, study groups can become very ineffective if theyre not structured and if groups members come unprepared. Effective students use study groups effectively.
