Academic Success Tip - Study Groups

Use study groups judiciously as you prepare for finals.

  • Do not skimp on your personal review time by joining too many group activities.
  • Schedule group time when you have reviewed the material enough to gain the most from discussions.
  • Alternate who explains concepts or answers questions so everyone has to “work” and get practice.
  • Have individual practice question time as well – your group cannot help you during the exam.
  • If study group sessions become too frustrating, consider gracefully bowing out to study by yourself or with just one other person.
