Question How many blocks per day?

Hi. I just completed the second read of Kaplan and now doing FA as well as uworld. I wanted to ask how many blocks per day is everyone doing? And what's your performance in the start. I have done 8 blocks as yet and 65% is my average performance. Is this going in right direction or should I give another read more thoroughly and fa as well before I think about performing better in mcqs. This is depressing me because I thought I read my books well

Dude 65% in uworld means you have done well with your reading part ... Because remaing 35% is additional information that uworld is giving you ...
Thats y uworld is special ... It's not easy it helps in teaching the students the gaps that are left in fa and Kaplan ..
Don't worry yiur scores will improve as you finish of the bank .... Read every answer right an wrong learn from it ... You will rock ...
