I think it is purely subjective and speculation, but everyone has their own experience. In my school, most of the top of the class were in study groups. I see them as a way to fill in the holes of your arguments and what not. There are a lot of "independents" who get to the library at 0800 hours and are doing terrible. i know this, not because i go to the library at 0800 (my gf does and she's top 2) but she tells me about 3 people in general who always claim they are studying (independently) and every time she sees them and i see them, they are on facebook, playing bejeweled, thinking about studying, writing away messages about studying, but then not having any time to actually study. I feel like study groups are good once a week- we meet once a week and do E&E and hypos, so if you are talking about every day study groups, then no, i can't see the benefit and i see your point. but general, one, two time a week study groups, then well, i think they can work wonders.
that's just my nickel.
