ya for me it was sufficient..i completed uworld by doing a block daily for 2 months....(some times i did extra 20 q's when i have time though)...it'll take around 4-4.5 hrs to finish a block with explanations...so u can have a plenty of time for reading purposes(like f.a, DIT or anyother).......i divided it likewise ,it differs with different persons right.?
i didnt do any other qbanks side by side with it(but after completion i did few offline usmlerx) as i studied parallel f.a and some brs books with it....

but i think u have 3 months time right..?....so if u want to again review the uworld then bettr take 3 months...as for my case i have offline version from which i'm reviewing them again

Hi I have a question. Is it possible to read the explanations and make notes on the same day? Or we need to separate days for reviewing the explanations.

Thanks!!

ofcourse we can...it's better to study and note them on the same day...many takers mostly will do the same i heard....but keep on reviewing the extra stuff you have annotated when u find time

If you do two block per day = 1 month ok ( i did that )

If you want to be comfortable and do one block/day = two months more than enough

put in you mind, do the block of UW + read the explnation and write note will take about 3 hours .

Best of luck

Is it possible to copy all the Uworld notes in FA? I mean is it possible to accommodate all the notes? Some of my seniors had theirs written in a separate notebook and recommended me the same. I too want to write my notes in FA.

ya...it depends on the method you prefer.....i mean someone would write the whole thing into seperate notes(for them writing it in notes would be beneficial)...someone would make them into small important points into F.A (as for me..i prefered this method).....it depends on you..

honestly saying i'm not the person to suggest you coz i didnt even give the exam...so better if you would take suggestions also from already who took it.....good luck

yup. i did that. UW about 50 blocks, so if you do two block every day, so you finish in 25 days.
but put in your mind that each block with read explanation will take average 3 hrs.

Good luck

Did any of you do something in particular before starting uw? Because many people suggest even another qbank before uw. Should i at least read fa cover to cover? And if i only need 2months of UW, can they be the last 2 months just prior to the exam? I also want to take the exam late Dec, so that gives me 3 months but i still want to do something the next month to not feel like i'm guessing on the questions.

Thanks a lot guys :-)

I have subscribed it for 3 months . In my 3rd month and havent finished it yet. Depends on your speed and how much notes do you takes from the explanations.
