USMLEWorld USMLE World with or without Tutor!

Hi

When I do the UW with tutor, I have almost 54 % correct, I think it's because when I see that I have some wrong answers, I get nervous.

So I try to do some blocks without tutors, and read wrong and good answers at the end of the blocks, I have 65-69%.

Is this last way a good way to use the Qbank?
any advice.
thanks

As long as you are reading all the explanations, right/wrong...everything UWorld explains..you MUST read. Everything in UWorld, is the exam.

I'm confused at your question. What you can do is this, do one block of 46 questions timed, no tutor. And after the block is over, you can go back and read all the explanations. If you are still in the beginning phases of studying, you can do a block of 46 questions untimed and tutor. So you do one question, read what the explanation is and move on to the next question. Once you are getting closer to your exam 2-3 weeks. I think it is very important to be using timed mode. And I believe that doing the whole block and then reading all the explanations is the best way to do it once closer to the exam.
