USMLEWorld How come UWorld in 2 months!

Hey
I cant figure out how does Uworld require 2 months to be finished ?
I mean there are 44 blocks
if 1 block you solved within 1 hour and then revised the answered and write notes for extra info for 4-5 hours then you will do it within 5 hours so if you studied in a day 10 hours then you can finish it 2 blocks/day , so 44 blocks will take 22 days !! I think 4 hours reviewing the answers is very adequate , I think 2 blocks / day is doable and finishing U world in 22 days is doeble , or I am missing sth because I cant understand why everybody says "" finished Uworld in 2 months "" !!

and btw I got another question, how much does doing an NMBE self assesment require time ( doing the assesment and looking for wrong answers) .. more than 4 hours/assesment ? or how much exactly
highly appreciate ur help

It depends, to make sure you're doing Uworld right take NBME at 50% - scored less than 230 - you MUST change your apporoach to qbank.
Don't like for time frame look for improving YOUR knowledge.You can spend 10h on 1 block of UWORLD(look in FA for each question, google pictures/explanations).Whatever works for you the best.

yep, took it 25+25 first half of USMLE, then 46 last half.Fortunately, my first NBME(7) was 259.(it was about 1.5 months till exam)
I don't say that you should spend 10h per block you have to find what works better for you even if it counterproductive thing e.g watching movies/playing games.

25Q=>review all questions+read corresponding page in FA, when next 25Q.
if you learned FA very well you have 240( mb 250).
There's more than 1 way to score high on USMLE, just make sure you're preparring right by taking NBME, though the latter you take NBME teh more predicitve they are.

i think a number of factors will be involved here. how well you are prepared with the concepts of FA before doing Uworld. if you know where everything in FA is, and have the basic framework of everything, then uworld can go by pretty fast.
