Default Uworld

Hey guys .. Hope you are doing well with your studies.
I have a question here regarding UWQB , I am going very slow through it doing only one block per day but reading all explanations and educational objective also .. And though this is supposed to be great but I am actually spending too much time and only reached 10% of the questions!!
Do you suggest other methods to go about uworld that doesn't necessarily sabotage the outcome?!
You input is much needed and greatly appreacieated..
Best regards

it all depends on how much time you have on your hands. I found UW explanations really great, the question bank is worth every penny. If you have enough time, just stick with your pace. You will get there, don't worry.
On the other hand, if your exam is in a few weeks and you are really under pressure, UW has this "educational objective section". If you got a question wrong/or got it right by guessing, read it, write down what you don't know and move on.

The bottom line is, you really have to learn the material one way or the other. If you like taking tests and reading the explanations afterwards do that. The other way could be cramming KLN or any other study material you have all day long and using UW just to ensure that you are learning the stuff well.

Please, do not be frustrated. Studying for this test is not easy. It takes time and patience. You are not alone my friend.

Thanks for the reply. Frankly I got frustrated with my current pace but according to your advice I should just be patient and carry on because I have much time before my exam date.
Thank you and best wishes for your endeavors current and in future
