1. how many hours per day u devoted on studying
2. how fast you can grasp main concepts from Qbnak explanations
3.how good you are on limiting yarself to some unnecessary external distructors e.g sign i facebook , twitting , play with yar phone , much yawning and daytime naps , lazyness of unexplained origin (LUO )
4. How fast and clear you can make yar own notes from explanation that you read from Qbank , note not everythng is necessary to know from these commercial Qbanks
5. How u can distinguish things to understand direct form explanation , and things u must put a certain notes in yar FA . if u will write everythng , then will take you more time to finish than normal
6. lastly is how good you are on concentrating and focus while you reading . 12 hours with poor concetration isnt real useful compared to just 6 hours of maximum concentarion . because at the end of day u will have reread same explanationagain in another question of same concepts , waste of time here . note , not everyquestion in qbank has somethng new to teach you . repetition of concepts is there , and will be even in yar exam like that .
CONCLUSION :
for ana average student and below average student who is dedicated to study , this is what can be seen :
UW = 1st time ( 2blocks per day , will take you 23 days to be done wth 47 blocks in UW and some extra 20 questions if i remeber it well )
Kaplan = is more fast here , 20 days u done . many questions are here but some are just not necessary to read them or put much concentration according to me and my experience .
USMLERx = be attentive here with your FA and will take you about 25 - 3o days be done wth it .
DIT = 7-10 days only , given that u had some knowledge before in yar FA .
All these is estimated in 12- 16 hours study per day . mine was 10 -12 per day , because am still med student . so is up to you and yar pl;an .
