Default Tips for marking Uworld questions

Hello all

I am looking for advice on which questions to mark in Uworld. I am taking my exam August 1 and I am trying to do UWorld at least twice, but I will be happy with going through it once and seeing all marked questions second time.

I am marking all questions I get wrong or ones I got correct, but might have guessed or not feeling strong on the concept.

Any advice appreciated

I advice to do it twice. The second time if you know why the correct answer is right and why the wrong answer is wrong you can just skip skim the explanation.

Doing it twice gives you a better understanding of concepts which you can't grasp from your first time
