hey I am planing on using only U world also . But how exactly did you study from U world. And how many times did you have to go over the questions before you memorized it? I plan on doing my first pass of U world in subject wise tutor mode-- and I will try my very best to memorise every point as you said. And my second round I plan on doing it in random timed mode to simulate the exam. Do you think this is good idea? I plan only using U world and no other text book. Will this be enough for 99. Thnks

DO NOT DO THIS!!! Do them random and timed everytime. Don't do subject wise, because the real test isn't subject wise. If anything, save subject wise for after you've gone thru it once, and if you have a specific area that needs work, then MAYBE do it subject wise. Don't try to memorize the questions either, just know the concepts. Know them COLD.

no not at all! once ur done with UW, the 2nd time will be nothing close to simulating the exam! so for the first attempt, do it RANDOM TIMED MODE! read the explanations throly. and once u r done. do it in tutor mode. make replica blocks in ur first attemot. by marking qz in a block. then create a block with marked questions. and suspend it! and then go back to the block u did and unmark. do the same for evry block!
i did the UW 3 times!! it depends on howu do it! 2 times should be fine provided u do it wisely in ur first attempt.
n i dont think jus UW wil do good. u need to do Kaplan LN thoroly. so much stuff i got in exam which was frm Kaplan LN.
hope this helps
