Both the group-study and self-study methods have their advantages and disadvantages. There are numerous reasons why I would like to study in a group; I will explain here a few of the most important ones.
Sharing knowledge which is learned in the class rooms and books is an excellent way to learn in a better way. Some point that the lessons professors taught you, your friends will help you to remember for a long by sharing the knowledge.
You can discuss a topic with them when some point is unclear. For example some students in my university offered to include me in their group in order to study together. It seemed to me a waste of time because I usually preferred to study alone. They convinced me to accept their proposal and with time this turned out to be the best preparation for any examination that I had ever done in my entire university years. I understood all of the points that the professors mentioned in the class, and we discussed other points which had not been made distinct. This experience taught me that studying with a group is the most effective method for most students.
Secondly, some students are good at math while others are good at biology. We are all different from each other, and we are interested in diverse subjects. A group provides a way for students to help each other with their varying weaknesses. Best students at my university were very smart and they usually do well in every subject. I did poorly in biology and therefore, I asked him to join our group to help us study. All I can say is that I loved to study with a group.
I believe that studying with friends is the most valuable way to learn. Not only do we share knowledge with each other, but we also assist one another in overcoming our weak points.
