Default which way to go?

Which is a better way in terms of solving rx & UWorld for step 1?

start with UWorld, a block a day consolidating the info and making sure you undertand, and using it as an educational tool rather than an assessment...then moving on to rx with 7 simulations of the test (7 blocks a day)

OR

start with rx 2 blocks a day, memorizing FA this way till you finish rx, then 2 blocks a day of UW to test how much you really understood and could integrate what you memorized in FA?

Save It!

I believe that the first option is the better one, at least that is what I have been doing. Uworld has great explanations, I am literally using it as another "book". You learn a lot from it. You don't even have to know the section that you are taking in uWorld, just go through the questions you selected and even if you get all the questions wrong (since you have yet to finish the material) you still will learn a lot! After you are done studying, you can also use kaplan's qBank to practice as well, or uWorld again, to see what you have learned and what you are scoring now.

Hope this helped.

Good luck
