Nope... Uworld doesn't have FA page references. I guess you have to look for the topic/page...

It would be awesome if UWorld has FA page references. It would make everyone life so much easier.

But...no worries...

But, by the time you're done with UWorld once...throughly...you would have flipped through your First Aid at least 5 times cover to cover.

And, you would know where everything in you FA by then.

In fact uworld itself can gulp down 5 FAsthats why i think they dont give FA page no..some info of them are straight copycat from harrison(eg:the clubbing,mcd etc)..so i guess they feel its unimportant to write FA page no..but sometimes they do give reference but that is of NIH research paper pagesin case one wants to know more about that topic

hey Avash,
UW takes stuff from Harrision and makes Qs, that's horrible, coz we dont need Harrison for step1. What NIH research paper pages that they attach to some topics?

In my own opinion, its not necessary to learn Fa by doing UW. UW is not straight recall of infos but concept applying...You can learn 2 things separately. Annotating UW pearls into FA makes FA more useful but it takes time...

Avash, could you elaborate on the prev post plz? I don't get that...
