Star Need advice on how to use UW

Hey everyone, I have my exam the end of september. I finished going through pathoma and kaplan once and have been doing uw now. It seems like it is taking me a while....I can only manage to do one block of uw a day because iam taking notes from the questions in my FA. Do you think i should stop taking notes or something else? This is my first pass through UW.

i had the same problem. you will realize how important those notes are when you're revising at the end. keep doing what you're doing and absorb every concept you see on UW, by time your note taking will become better and you'll see many repeated info which you won't need to write again

You know what i found to be helpful was downloading the pdf version of first aid on my smart phone and instead of using the index in the back of the first aid which i find useless sometimes. I would just search for keywords on my pdf first aid and then flip to the pages in my first aid to annotate into from uworld.

It shaves a little time off from going through the index or looking for key words .
