Preferring to study alone or with a group depends upon peoples study routine and their study habits. Personally, I do not have specific preference for studying alone or with a group. I believe that both ways are useful depending on subject matters and particular situations.
Studying alone has its advantages such as having more time for learning and focusing only on subject matter. If I study alone I would not distract my attention talking with other people or discussing with them either my study problems or theirs. Thus, I would have enough time to devote myself entirely to studying. As a result, I can practice better and I will be more self-confident when examination time comes.
On the other hand, studying with a group is useful and valuable because there are other people with whom I can exchange information and discuss the subject matter. Another point worth mentioning is that studying in a group is of great importance for creating appropriate attitude and skills needed for work as a team in the future. As we all know it is one of the most important skills employers require nowadays. Apart from this, studying with a group can help me regard another points of view and receive more explanations when I am confused about subject matter.
As a matter of fact, my experience tells me that both studying alone and with a group are equally useful. If I study alone I would not distract my attention but on the other hand, working with a group would help me exchange valuable information about subject matters.
Whether I study alone or I work in a group the most important things for me are to gain knowledge as much as I can and to pass my tests successfully.
