If you want to review questions with heart and soul, I mean by this a good review also using FA to annotate and review, I will say minimum 2 months.

Agree, reviewing and noting to FA takes much more time than actual answering.
2 month very good amount.

hey guys whats a good way to speed up doing the questions .. i have about 7 days left in the subscription and have 800 questions left. Any ideas? Should I do the rest in tutor mode to get things going faster ? or not review the answers i get wrong? (although i like reviewing everything even if i get it right!)

skip reading the answers, which concept is quite simple and known to you.
This way I guess you can cover all 800...

Sometimes you get a question right without you knowing the actual mechanism (well that happens to me sometimes lol) so I tend to review everything just to be on the safe side. But for the questions that i know very well and i got right, i normally just skim through it very fast and sometimes i even skip it if its a very easy question! (however, that happens rarely in UW )

Agree with it, among right answers there are some "guess" type corrects (which you said is not sure), I think they are Must to be focused.

In UW in utilities part they included - search by 'keyword' option. This way you can select pool of questions on topics which you feel loose.
I think it is very good way to review.
