Listening Very slow pace with the first day of prep

Hello everyone, This is my first day studying for Step 1, and i find myself reading at an excruciating slow pace (30 pages of BRS physio in 7 hrs). My question is should I skim through these review books multiple times, or take my time taking notes?
I have around 6-7 months to prepare.

Hello,



Just take your time and make the notes. And when you start revision you will feel much familiar to the material and feel more confident about what you have studied.

So best thing is make notes for the very first time... try to understand every concepts!



All the best!

First time of reading is the slowest! So dont worry! It just takes a lot of time to get used to it, but its totally normal to be slow. Just understand what u read, add notes to FA and u will be fine. When u go through it again a second time it will be much quicker+ there may be some parts u dont have to read anymore since u know them already. Best of luck!
