Hi Yasir,

I am currently on my first read, and I am using FA as I go with the topics, its easier to look at their summaries and mnemonics for me as I go, this way when I come back to FA after my first read ( god willing), I will then be used to its format and where things are.

I am just speaking from my experience.. haven't attempted any usmle world,nbme or any mcqs yet, so Can't tell u if my approach is amazing, but It does help summarize things and re-inforce them.

Finally, GOOD LUCK! I hope we do well in the exam!

The best source is UWORLD no doubt! Kaplan Q bank is equally good. FA is a an amazing review book. Use it along with ur qbanks.

All the best !
