Our free study groups are a priceless alternative to an overly commercialized test-prep marketplace.
When one teaches, two learn
Leverage our unique learning model to ace any exam in first attempt
Studying can sometimes be difficult and challenging. While some prefer the lone wolf approach, many candidates prefer social interaction with peers to compare notes, discuss problems and motivate one another. If done right, participating in a study group can be one of the best ways to prepare for an exam. Each year many candidates participate in informal study groups, finding them an effective way to study for the exams. Our study groups are comprised of six to sixteen motivated professionals and will meet once a week after normal working hours or on weekends.
Study Group Advantage
Candidates, from different backgrounds, pass all levels in first attempt
- Discipline is one of the primary advantages cited by candidates for joining a group. The weekly meetings are scheduled to help candidates stay organized and on schedule.
- Diversity of experience and skill sets among candidates. Many of the more difficult concepts can be clarified by a candidate who has experience in that field. The group builds on the collective knowledge of all the participants.
- Camaraderie and peer pressure can help you keep a positive attitude. Your anxiety level is likely to spike several times over the next few months, and a close-knit study group can provide valuable motivation and support.
- Forming new relationships along with an expanded network of industry professionals are additional benefits of joining a study group.
How it works
Successful study groups need structure and discipline
- Study Group create a study plan and adhere to it.
- The group move in unison – No one is behind, everyone is always encouraged and enthusiastic about their learning. When someone feels left behind, the rest of the group and the coordinator quickly bring him/her up to speed.
- All participants use the same study material, go through the same study sessions and participate in a weekly group session led by Group Coordinator.
- The weekly group sessions are meant for quiz, interactive discussions and clarifications of the concepts that the participants have already read.
- Every few weeks, the group takes a full-length practice exam of all the material covered upto that point.
