Hi

I had a similar plan but instead of doing 4-5 reads of KLN, I incorporated FA into the plan as its highly recommended!! What I did was - I went through KLN & videos ONCE and now Im focusing on UWORLD and 4-5 reads of FA !!

"Study smart, don't study hard!" --- FA has a lot of HY topics wit only the HY information that you need to know for the exam. You can spend a lot of time learning detailed concepts about everything which would be good as well but considering my plan, I dont have much time left for my test and have to rely on FA!

Well good luck!

Hi Hope2Pass, I have heard many mention the videos. Could you please tell me where I can get hold of them? I don't live in the USA, so it will not be possible for me to physically attend any live lectures.

Thanks very much!
