I used it while reading FA. I'd read a page or topic in FA, then read the corresponding card on GT and bank those questions. When I got to about 20 questions, I reviewed the flashcards. I just kept doing that for most of FA. Each morning before I started my day I did flashcards, or I would do them in the night when I was too tired to do much else. If you don't have alot of time, I would suggest doing it for pharm (including all the pharm in each system), path, micro, immuno, and any other weak areas you have.

Took a few months, I don't think it would be possible to do in a month and may not even be worth it. What i would do instead is just do 1 or 2 of your weakest subjects with GT, or maybe high yield memorization things like pharm.
