Default Adding notes?

Hello Guys ,
I did watch all Kaplan videos read all LNs , along with Pathoma
Now I m doing 2nd read of *LNs , along with 1st Aid and USMLE-rx
I m plaining in finishing this in one month and a half*
But one thing concerns me , which is adding notes , I found my self writing lots of notes filling out lots of page (>20 for biochem !! ) u will say why?
And I will give the real deal in 6 months or so ..*
I know you'll say this is a hell plenty of time! But hold on , I m still a student having lots of other distractors ( 2priods of finals -2 wks each) along with lectures and clinics!
Regardless of all crap being said , one thing matters , my idea is that as my studying is quite fragmented I want to tie things together by writing lots of notes as during this long time I will be forgetting lots of thing*
So what do u think guys?

I don't think people can really comment much on other's prep as it's mostly an individual thing. They can guide you in terms of resources and what NBMEs to take first, last etc., what qbanks to focus on but you make the ultimate decision as to when you want to take the exam, how you want to prepare, the method of study etc.

I think your plan is quite fine. Just make sure that come exam time, you should be able to go back and review all the notes you've made. I used to have the habit of taking lots of notes, only to realize that I would never touch them again, so that personally doesn't work for me. But if making notes will help you tie in things together and force you to revise them periodically, then go for it!

Good luck
