Smile I read it

I read it, it's a great book, it tells you how to work on your weaknesses and how to master the MCQ puzzles, this book teaches you what others (UW, Kaplan, FA) did not teach you.

It talks about strategies on how to tackle MCQs, such as how to break down complex questions in bits and pieces of factoids and how to focus your brain on solving the problem.
Caution: it does not work if you haven't started doing questions yet, you have to start doing questions and then it can be helpful.
