Purposes of conducting this research are to find out students’ attitudes toward group work implemented in their classes and to conclude advantages and disadvantages of group work based on students’ attitudes. Handing close-ended questionnaires to 84 fifth semester students and doing interview to seven students was done to get data of this research. Research showed that students’ positive and negative attitudes were found to be balanced. Students’ positive attitudes showed that they enjoy the group work because they share and discuss their ideas. As for the negative attitudes: students spend too much time talking about unrelated topics and their contributions to the group are not balanced. From these results, advantages and disadvantages of group work were concluded.

Meanwhile, the most disadvantage of group work is that group grade is unfair. In conclusion, there are still some parts in group work implementation that should be improved even though it brings positive effects.
