Hi there,

It should take you a long time to properly go through a block of questions... Don't worry about others who get through in 2-3 hours, because everyone learns at different paces. As long as you are finishing a block and remembering everything and completely grasping the material, then timeframes don't matter. This is a TOUGH exam, and the way you're preparing is correct! Keep in mind that this is not a race, and that quality studying is way more important than quantity of studying... If it takes you longer than someone else, so what, the goal is a great step 1 score, and if that takes you a bit longer to achieve, at least at the end of the road you will have achieved it.

Good luck in your studies!

Dr. Paul
