I am doing testing mode, but smaller blocks. Rather than "copying" explanations ("Oh, I'll read this later"), I find the section in FA and annotate with a few words or a sentence...

When you read each question you have to decide what is the main purpose of the question writer. Try to link every answer together. Also, try to read the concept, not the chips of knowledge tossed to you.

If for example, you have a question about SSRI induced impotence, don't simply read about that, but try and review the general picture of DRUG INDUCED IMPOTENCE which will include b-blockers, cocaine, antiparkinsonics etc etc
