First Aid Reading FA more than 10 times

Hello, I've finished my 1st read from kaplan and some BRSs
I am aiming for 270+
do I have to keep reviewing the books or just keep memorizing FA with Qbanks??

I have 5 months left.. and I keep worrying about forgetting stuff that are in the books but not in FA, and I cant add everything to FA..

I need your help

Wink FA isa

to be honest, i feel that it is better to eat every word in FA rather than going though a bigger source, from what i noticed in solving questions, almost 90 % of questions are from FA

so it is either u know concepts that constitute 90% of the exam by your heart
or u have a general knowledge of 95-98 % but u still not acing the 90% coz u diluted ur concentration over wider sources.... and there is no definite curriculum for the exam ....meaning u can study the beast Gojan rapid review and still get a question outside it

my exam in on late march so u can't rely on my words coz i didn't take the exam yet, but this is my methodology and i hope it works fine enshalla :sorry:
