Default Honestly who uses snipping tool....?

Everyday seems to be going faster and faster and I'm trying to use Kaplan Qbank as a "learning tool" but holy moly, its so time consuming to write all the important stuff in a separate notebook as many people who have gotten a 250+ have described to do so. Plus you can't just write down the explanation, you have to look at the other choices as well and see why its not the answer. For about 50% of the questions the other choices help you learn as well. To save time, does anyone use this tool?

Hey, how far out is your exam?
If I were you I would rather write down than using a snipping tool. I feel like most things can be answered with FA so you shouldn't write things down that can be found in this book. I sometimes do the mistake that I write something down and on the same page the exact same thing is mentioned already.

Yeah I do the same, but FA does not have everything, I'm following the zum zum method and there are so many things in the Anatomy section that have to be written.

Yes I think it's a must to write everything down on a notebook, later you can revise it over and over again with FA

sorry to ask this silly question but what is a snipping tool?
im also doing qbank and i find that part of the answer is on FA i read the explanation, understand what went wrong and write in FA the explanation in my own words. sometimes there is no space and i have to put post-its or pastE blank pages.
friends of mine that have done both qbank and uworld told me that the answers and explanations WORTH WRITING IN A NOTEBOOK are from uworld not qbank.
so my advice is do the notebook thing on uworld not qbank. otherwise you will end up with a huge amount of information.
