Wherever you consider more comfortable. In my case, at first, I started a new notebook, where I annotated and made summaries from Kaplan and added stuff from Uworld, or from the web. And I also started adding a few stuff directly into the FA book. But then, when my summaries started becoming more complete, I left FA aside, and only used it to double check my own info.

I actually prefer writing directly into fa , the pro is you don't have to write from a to z , majority of the facts you can find in fa , so you can just add up what's missing . Hence , save more time in reviewing , this is just my thought .

i feel you are right ....annotating on the FA is the way to go ..... it certainly saves time and helps to keep things at a particular area to review later ...so whenever you review FA , you review all your annotations as well ...whether kaplan ...UW ... Usmle Rx ..... you don't have to look for other notes and it is time consuming you see ....every time you will read FA you will search for that same info in your notebook and it takes you extra time .... so keep the annotations short and small and be smart about it
