Life is Too Short, Be Happy
If there’s something you don’t understand, someone else may be able to explain it to you in more detail. In return, you may be able to help them on a subject they may not understand.
Studying in a group works best if there’s not a crowd. 5-7 people is more than enough to cover all of the topics in a few hours. If you’re working on a group project, you may want to meet 2-3 times to make sure everything gets done and you don’t put everything off until the last minute.
If you find it hard to study in someone’s dorm or apartment, try a coffee shop or rent out a room in the library. If your professor gives out a study guide, break up those items evenly between the group members and have everyone write down everything they have from their notes and anything they can find in their textbook about those subjects.
Once everyone is done, you can share what notes you have and everyone can complete their study guide. Now is a perfect time to ask about any subjects you may be confused about. With everyone still together, you can cover those tricky concepts or come up with tricks to remember formulas or vocab words.
If you aren’t given a study guide, you can make your own! Using your textbook, write down the main concepts from each chapter and do the same step mentioned above. Not only will this make studying a whole lot easier, it’ll probably be a lot more fun! Stock up on snacks and coffee and you’ll be good to go.
