Default A different method for microbiology..

Can I start my first review of microbiology by first doing questions, annotating FA and referring back to CMMRS/Kaplan if required? Or do I need a complete review of CMMRS/Kaplan to start?

I want to do this because I don't want to spend any extra time from now on and it's obvious from many posts regarding preparing for microbiology that FA & UW can be sufficient.

Please drop in your personal suggestions regarding covering microbiology optimally.

Read FA then do UW. That would be enough. MMRS is full of very low yield facts.

I believe I can rely on this fact, now that I have come across manyyyyy posts mentioning that even as an IMG, they felt that FA & UW for at least and specifically microbiology was enough.

Thanks for your input

You are welcome, actually first aid+UW are enough for many subjects

Thank you npktun. I'll feel microcards would be a great consolidating tool with all info in condensed form at one place for plain memorization.
