It becomes necessary to get some fine details but not all the books. Just some sections to get better understanding.

It becomes important if ur first read has been for a while especially people working or engaged in other activity while studying might forget most of the material so in this case reading it again is highly recommended.

Yes...nsesereso is rite...if you dnt understand anything and reading FA without understanding then it's gonna hurt you...so keep looking to those books for topics you dnt get or getting wrong...I studied all the notes 2nd time so it depends how much you understand and how much time you have...let me tell you second time reading helps a lot...if you have time go for it...then FA will be like a cake walk....

I did it too. It helps big time. I mean u could now finish books in just 2-3 days.
But the reality is questions matters bigger time.
