I know what you mean the explanations take a long time to go over, but do not write down everything. That will take a very long time. I would suggest that you read the explanation and understand what they are saying. And then write down the most important points from that question into FA or into your own notes book. This way you will not write everything and will save a lot of time! Good luck!

have you done first aid? alot of the uworld concepts are already in there and as you ready new ones it is easier to put those notes into the first aid. therefore it makes for a faster review.

Hey nitin, I know it happens to all of us. UW explanations are jumbo and take hell lot of time. When is your exam? Just keep on doing it you will notice after sometime ur score and speed will increase. When u are writing notes try to write in your med essential. In that way u won't end up writing everything. Just write those points which are missing.
Hope it helps
Best of luck.
