ACT / SAT Prep Tip: Form a Study Group

Many students find study groups helpful when it comes to preparing for a test, final, or big project. So why not apply that to the ACT and SAT?

On Track and On Schedule

One of the great benefits of studying with other people is holding each other accountable. Finding a time that works for both of your schedules, and sticking to it, is a great way to ensure you have consistent study sessions.

Teach Each Other the Material

If you really know the material, a formula, or a certain subject, try teaching it. It’s a great way to reinforce your own knowledge while helping someone else gain an understanding of it. Divide various aspects of the ACT / SAT between your group and give a mini-lesson on it to the others.

Social Learning

Some students learn best in an individual environment, but others learn best while studying with others. Conversation, questions, and different perspectives can help a concept “click.” The pretense of other students might make studying seem like less of a drag, or might even inspire competition that kicks motivation into gear.
