hey anisha. okay so you have about 3 months right.when doing the questions do you feel like its an "understanding of the questions problem" or a
memory problem".
i know its early and a little scary,but if you tell us an Nbme score,you will get a lot of good feedback from many people here that can help you.
see what you think is the best move for you now.
cause initially i had an awful time while doing the questions and i realized i didnt even understand what they were asking.
anyway good luck.

I am having the same issue as you Anisha. My exam is in november too. But What I try to do when doing uworld questions for now is I focus on the concept being asked in the question. I write down whatever i need to write or sometimes I dont even write anything down as long as i feel i get the concept. Sometimes i write in fa, sometimes in a notebook. I am banking on my second run through questions to make better notes in fa. Not sure if this is the best way but tht is what i am doing.

Bad Idea! Stimulate the real tests online. If you want offline NBMEs however, I have them. PM me if you want them!
