Question Gunnertraining - too much low yield info?

Anybody else find that GT has a lot of low yield stuff they force you to bang into your brain?

In the anatomy section I find that there's soooo much info that's not in Kaplan or in FA. If it was just a bit of extra info I wouldn't mind since I could annotate it into FA and it could possibly help me answer a Q on the exam, but when you have 5-10 extra points per topic it get's hectic.

I'm hoping the other parts aren't as low yield.

I think the best feature would be to allow the user to omit points when reviewing the flash cards.

I haven't tried GT yet but there's a flashcard software I found in this forum while browsing old threads. You might have heard of it already. It's called ANKI software and you can download different decks of flashcards using it. You can add/delete cards. I just tried it for a bit but I haven't fully used it yet. So I can't really assure you of the quality or helpfulness.

Default No time for it

Gunners TRaining is good. But it gets too much.
Not just the infor but after you do the flash cards and take the quiz. They get added to the next day review and then as you keep on doing them the review file just keeps on increasing. Its a good resources. But its something to be used early in prep.
Not if you are only preparing for step 1. I would recommend review Kaplan, First aid and Uworld. Rinse and repeat rather than Gunners. In my opinion, if you really want to do something in gunners, use it for the Q bank.
I have the subscription for 6 months but I find it really hard to use it.
