(link) True learning and mastery of material is an internal process, not something anyone can give to you or do for you. Homework and time spent reading (and rereading) and digesting the material is essential to knowledge of the material.

Working in groups on homework sets can certainly be beneficial, however do your final homework writeups on your own. If you cannot do the sets on your own, take this not as a sign of defeat, but an indication that there is still something that you need to learn in order to actually understand the material. Whether you seek help from me, fellow classmates, or from rereading the text is up to you, just don't give up! Often the only difference between the students who score well and those who don't is a refusal to give up.
