Which is more productive studying alone or group study? I used to study in a group during my college years. There are pros and cons studying in a group. Based on my experience, when you study in a group, you can get different ideas. Sharing ideas is one of the pros in studying with people. You can discuss things and can also get a chance to ask someone in the group if you need help. One of the cons in studying with people is more chitchats than studying. Instead of discussing ideas related to school, you have more time to talk about unneccesary things. I realized studying alone works for me better than a group study. But of course, some people will find studying in a group more productive than studying alone. Always choose the study habit you prefer to be productive.
