Why do students study with other students rather than to just ask the teacher questions? How is it helpful to study with other students , rather than to just direct question to the teachers, is this realistic? In a class where the teacher is availible to answer questions, and offers to do so, why do you think some people never ask the teacher, but study in groups with each other before class, after class , on weekends etc, and never really talk to the teacher? Does anyone understand the line of reasoning? The students who study with other students in class, and don't ask the teacher any questions are getting really good grades, by the way.
