Yes, I created a study group when I was in college, but it was difficult because everyone has different times. I think it is very important for you to study with friends or people with whom you feel comfortable, in this way learning is more meaningful and you can be more constant in your process.

hi can you please tell me if my writing is correct

Hello yoyoraw

I'm afraid we don't correct users' texts. If you have a question about a specific word or part of a sentence, we're happy to help you with that. 

But I can say that your text is quite clear and the only error I spotted was 'its', which should be 'it's'.

All the best

Actually no i have not created a study group before. But, i would like to be in a group one day, because i feel its a useful way of studying. Plus, its more fun to study with a group than being alone .

I've never created group study but i think it's a great way to motivate each other and to make us more smart.
My tips :
- for making group study four or five people is enough because more than 5 become more crowd and hard to get focus on.
- Consistent, if we had make a deal to make group discussion then we decide the day and time we will meet. Be consistent to do the group discussion. Sometimes only on the beginning we have to do then later become stuck and finish.

Hello, I haven't created a study group, not a stric group but I had been in a lot of group depending of the assignment and if we want to get a higher degree we used to have meetings in differents places. A few years ago we didn't have cellphone's and we get focused on what we had to do, not as these days how Mujtabaaman says, were all the students have mobile cellphone's and they get easily distracted

A study group is a good idea, due to students may share ideas and improve their knowledge about different study subjects.

When I was student, I created a study group with my classmates. We usually met on Monday to organize activities and homework. However, each member had other duties as sport or elective classes, for that, always someone did not attend to the meeting.

The study group helped me to understand other point of view and share ideas, notes and prepare exams.

I had a good experience with my study group, despite we did not regularly get together.

No, I didn't. But I study sometimes with my friends, so I have some experience.
Tip number one : try to have few people in the group, because if there were too many students in the group, it will be almost impossible to study seriously, and it will be like hanging out with your friends rather than making a studying group.
Tip number two : take you phones away, because it will only disturb from studying, so just put it away or don't use it.
Tip number three : take breaks, because studying for long continuous hours is unprodective.

Yeah, I'd love to study with Grob, but not more than four people, like he says, " I think anything done with Grob's participation comes with the best result."
Is my writing correct?

Hello r0000ma

That is grammatically correct, though I would separate it into two sentences (after the word 'people').
