Although studying alone can be convenient, studying with a partner or in a group has many benefits. Did you know you can get the best of both worlds? AATBS has online study groups through Facebook that are free to participate in. You can stay in the comfort of your typical study space while reaping the benefits of a study group. They are private, free, catered to your specific licensure, and monitored by our in-house coaches.
Here are 5 reasons why you should join an online study group.
Do you have a question about your exam or a certain concept? In an online study group, you don’t have to wait until your next group get-together to get questions answered. Other people who are in the same boat as you are easily accessible. An online study group also doesn’t have a specific meeting time and place, so participating in the group will fit well into your study schedule.
When you are only held accountable to yourself, it’s easy to cut corners. If you study alone and skip a session, no one has to know and you are the only one affected. But, when you have group members to hold you accountable to the times you have scheduled to study, you are more likely to get it done.
You will understand some concepts more than others. When you don’t understand something and you are a part of a study group, you have plenty of different people to help you see a concept with a new perspective. You might even be able to help someone grasp something that you are well versed in.
Along the same thread of learning concepts from others, you can also pick up on new study techniques from people in your study group. It is easy to get stuck in a rut, bored, and burnt out from the monotony of constantly studying the same way. In a study group, you can pick up on fresh ideas of how to shake things up in your study sessions.
In an online study group, you will likely see people celebrating their passing scores and receiving praise from other group members. Witnessing the success of others who you have journeyed through the study process with could be just the motivation and inspiration that you need to know that success will be yours too!
