I was really amazed to see his group of friends who were together when Shiv Sahay was preparing. He recalled that during this attempt as he was in service; his friends were of great help and made him comfortable during preparation.
He is not the first such incidence, I have been witness to lot many groups of friends who helped each other while preparing for Civil Services Examination.
An effective group helps you solve problems, reach at decisions and explore challenging questions where you feel stuck otherwise.
You may have picked up some information from any source. Put it open in discussion, you get this information firm in your memory by doing so.
If by any chance this information is wrong, other group members would intervene and each member talks about the source of their information and soon you will reach at an authentic decision thereby updating you on this issue.
Just try it out with a particular topic which is giving you trouble. Introduce it in your group and discuss over it. You will find that it emerges crystal clear and will help you recall in examination hall as well.
Likewise, take up a chat about any contemporary issue in your group and observe many a new issues, new angles and information associated with it would come out which probably you were missing.
Be aware of what you do in group as sometimes these group discussions on irrelevant topics results in time wasting activities as well.
