Question Review FA during 1st pass of UWorld?

Hello folks! Need some advice.

I'm currently doing UWorld & annotating facts to FA. I've been a bit slow with this process and couldn't find time to separately review FA alone. Although by reviewing FA daily I might get a few more questions in UWorld correct but I really wish to be done with UWorld soon.

Am I making a mistake by not dedicating some separate time to review FA topicwise or in weak areas?

Same here . it takes too much time to write uworld notes..i made almost 300 pages notes and spent almost 10hr on a single block..then i stated FA and realized 80% content is already present in FA.SO better first read every word of FA..

P.S: though i wasted 2 mnths on uworld alone but now i am revising notes and FA and i must say i made a ryt decision .. so make notes if u have tym otherwise first read FA

That's a very helpful perspective, medicalbiology!

I have been referring directly to first aid from UWorld and the pattern of my FA coverage is completely dependent on the random topics which are tested in UWorld but I've not been able to separately go through FA topicwise.

And I'm following your advice regarding UWorld
