Default how important is FA?

I have read it in bits and pieces here n there of FA.. Somehow my score in qbanks doesn't seem to raise significantly, so will FA help in raising ur score or is it just to review in the last few days before the exam?

You should read FA all the way through at least once. Most people recommend doing it more than once. It will help a lot on your qbank scores, I bet.

FA multiple times, at least 3 times if you can. Read to both understand and memorize.
