Question Should I annotate everything?

When doing questions i get right should i read all wrong explanations and annotate the little bits of info i dont have into first aid? I find that it is taking very long to go through all the explanations and might have to skip sometimes it takes me the whole day ? Am i doing something wrong?

Should i just read the small review caps for the one i get right and move quickly on?

You have to read everything in U World. Both the right and wrong answers. But annotating is just a personal preference. If you think you have the time, its better to annotate it. I personally did not do it as I thought it would be time consuming. But I regret slightly on not doing so.

Annotate what you feel is important but read everything in the explanation even the wrong ones too.
