Group study vs self-study

Studying involves gathering knowledge and remembering them. The method of studying differs from people to people. Some people believe that studying by self would be more effective and fruitful while others, in contrast, believe that studying in a group will help them in knowing more facts and possibly remember them in the long run. Though both methodologies have their own positives, in my opinion, group study is a better way of learning than self- learning. I feel this way for two important reasons which I will explore in the following essay.
To begin with, I would say group studies will help one to understand more about the subject than self -learning. This is because each and every member of the group will share their knowledge about the subject to be learned so that everyone can learn from others perspective and can end up with a better knowledge of the subject. Further, this very thing will enable one to have a clear idea of the learning. My own experience is an example of this. I prefer learning in a group always which helped me a lot in scoring good grades. My friend, though comfortable in studying by self, always ends up with less knowledge compared to me. This clearly demonstrates the benefits of group studying.
Secondly, group studies help one to remember things easily for a long period. In group studies, the same part of the subject is repeated in different ways by the group members. The repetition of the subject will assist one to take the cardinal points well to heart. This enables all the members of the group to have better reminiscence. One example to prove this is my biology classes. My professor, instead of giving long lectures, will always tend to have an open discussion about the topic to be handled. Because of the interactive learning,all the students had their full concentration and listened keenly. This helped all the students to remember the subject and recall it. On the other hand, the professors who gave long hackneyed lectures were not able to get the students attention wholly. This resulted in a vague knowledge of the subject taught and decreased results.
In conclusion, I strongly believe that group studies are far superior and effective than self- learning. The fact that group studies can give a variegated source of knowledge and remembrance is undeniable. The more we enjoy the learning, the more we understand and remember it. Group studies give a great opportunity to enjoy the learning and provide a pool of knowledge.

You are really good writer. Your essay is very informative and interesting. But there is one thing that I want to advice to you to make your assays better. I mean your writing style. Sometimes it's better ask for expert consultation.
