Mix mode= Timed tutor. Category=ALL. Sub-category= ALL
^I think thats what the member meant.

Going over FA after annotating it should take you about 10 days (+ try doing 100 UW questions/day)

and then repeat...

No maximum amount of time you can spend on first aid. Go over it as many times as possible while doing the questions. It really is the highest yield source. I had at least 3-4 questions on my exam which were on stuff in first aid that i remembered going over literally the night before...and may not have got right otherwise.
