Study partner

What are your guys views on a study partner? Is it something I should look into or not? I feel like it wouldn't hurt, right?

Some people have strongly suggested it to me but to be honest, and I don't mean to sound like a dick, I couldn't find anyone who was aiming in the same range as I was.

I want the best score possible and the only people I knew were aiming much lower so I felt like I would be tutoring them mostly and not getting the most out of my own studying, but that's just my thinking.

I'm sure if I put more effort into finding a good partner with similar goals, the overall process would have been much easier. I say try and find one, but make sure you have similar goals!

A study partner that doesn't know as much as you do can be an opportunity for you. Teaching the concepts to someone who doesn't know them forces you to articulate the concepts clearly which, in turn, can reinforce them in your own mind. If you can't explain a concept clearly then there is a good chance that you don't fully understand it. (I'm sure at least some people will disagree with that last statement though.)

A study partner with similar goals can be good and bad too. If your study partner is progressing faster than you are, it can be discouraging, on the other hand the competition can be motivating.
