Default Questions per day

Hi guys,

I'm starting Qbank questions full-time now. How many questions do you think it reasonable to aim for per day? Obviously it's an individual thing, but would 120 per day be doable?

Thanks,

NAC

it depends on your schedule;are you just doing questions or are u reading other materials alongside?
its not a marathon & no of question done per day does not matter.what matters is understanding the concept of how the answers are derived and applying them.some people do 48,100,200,even 120 dly
it all depends on you

I'll be doing about 9 hours of questions per day. I suppose what I should have asked is: how long, on average, does it take to properly get through a block of 48q with explanations?

It depend on person to person. But on average as per others experiences I came to know that to do 46 question fellas take 1 hour and more 2 hours to review. So if you are thinking to do 2 blocks per day. It will take 6-7 hours on average.
Hope I answered ur question properly.

How do you plan to do the questions?
System/subject wise or random?

I have over 1000 questions remaining in kaplan qbank. I intend to do those timed by system. Then move on to UW on timed random. I've got about 30 days allocated for this, so need to be doing 100/day minimum, though I'd like to have days at the end to review wrong UW answers. Allowing for 35% wrong (rough estimate), that would leave me with ~700 to review. If I get 120/day done in the 30 days, that puts me right on target.
