USMLEWorld USMLE World Subject-specific blocks

Hi guys,

I am doing UW online for the 2nd time and encountered a problem. When a sub-division has more than 46 questions, how can it be sure that I've covered all the questions in it? Since the maximum number of a test is 46 and the questions I guess is randomly picked up from the subdivision.

Is there a way?

Thank you!

So if for example there are 104 question about subject X.

You do 2 blocks (each 46 questions) then you do the remaining questions in one block (12 questions).

The problem is the second 46 repeats some questions which have been included in the first 46.

In that case you need to buy a new one or two months subscription and go only un-used questions for each new block.

There's no other way.

Yeah. My solution so far is do it again and again. For example, for a subdivision which has 80 questions, I do 46*3=138 questions so that it may cover most of them.

Kind of a waste of time.
