USMLEWorld Two blocks per day of UWorld; Am I going too fast!

Hi ..

I subscribed for uworld step 1 15 days back and was doing good till one of my friends pointed out I WAS GOING TOO FAST !!!

I do about 2 blocks a day...
I do read all the explanations , take down notes and refer to FA now and then...

I'm scoring around 70 to 75% ... i tried but ain't crossing that...

I'm worried if there is something seriously wrong with the way i'm doing uworld....

Please help me out .... Any advise is highly appreciated... thank you

2 blocks a day is normal. I usually do 2 blocks and manage to answer another block before I call it a day. And I'm pretty elaborate in my note making and reading up.

Maybe your friends are not going fast enough.
It is never too fast to prepare, esp if you are able to review and score consistently.
The faster you finish, the more time you get to revise & re-revise your problem areas.
So keep going. Just don't tire yourself out.
