Why Study Groups Work

Research shows that students who study together learn 2.5 times as much as students who study alone. Here are some of the reasons that studying in a group is so effective: 

  • Community. Your study group will unite around a common goal—to do your best on the SAT. 

  • Accountability. You won’t let teammates down because they’re counting on you to show up and stay focused. 

  • Support when you need it. The group will be there to help you get unstuck. 

  • Stress relief. Sharing a plan with others reduces test stress.
