Default Annotation in FA

Well the way I do it is when I am done answering a question in UW in tutor mode (for example, a question about Biochem DNA replication) then I go to FA reference and find the page number on which the topic is discussed. I read that page or topic or paragraph whatever it happens to be. Then I go back to the question from UW, I write the educational objective in FA (blank sheets inserted in FA binder) along with the question id so I know which question it is. Then I read the rest of the answer, for example the wrong choices etc. If I feel there is anything that is missing in FA that the question is discussing then I annotate that info into FA. Hope this helps.

use a pdf version of FA, then you can search for words... it is faster than going through the index of your hardcopy.
