First Aid Going back to studying the First Aid

Hello everyone!My situation is like this, I was doing Qbank questions and was getting destroyed.I had a 42% accumalative on 44% of the Qbank done.I saw the Kaplan videos and studied the Kaplan books once and would write some notes on my First Aid, but never really got to study the First Aid well.So now I am going to study the First Aid from front to back and then continue on with the questions.What do you guys think?Opinions please...

I think that's a good plan. Try to get through FA pretty quickly, and then start back on Qbank. The reason i say try to do it quickly is because if you go through it too slowly, then you start to forget the things you read in the beginning. Repetition is key, if you can manage to read it at least a couple of times, things will start sticking. Good luck!
