Question Reading alone, Qs alone or both?

Hi guys,
Just wanted to ask what are you doing during review
do you do questions only or reading only or mixed both of them in the same day
for me am reading in the morning and then doing kaplan qbank at night. Is that OK or do you have a better method

Thanks in advance

What you are doing is good,
mix reading and questions in the same day is excellent and always keep you fresh as it will change the routine always

but one suggestion, do the questions in the morning and you'll see your performance going much better

Steven Daughtery from Kaplan said this
Do your questions at night when you are tired and stressed out, this way you will replicate the exam environment closely as in the real exam you are under stress.

So Nsonowa, you are doing it right keep on the same schedule

It varies individually ,
From my point of view, it is a nice plan to revise the notes together with questions study every day . You will not feel bored ........

moreover, learning from the mistakes in question study will help you a lot in memorizing facts...
