hey Bebix!
Could you please tell me that doing 1 block of uworld everyday in the begining with explanations is good enough or should I do 2-3 blocks daily??
What strategy to follow to get maximum benefit?
Thanks..

Im doing 1 block (plus explanations) for now, because Im still not done with pathology...
so I read RR Pathology most of the day (+ goljan audios) and then I do 1 block as a "dessert"...but I think if your done studying, you should start doing more than 1 block per day!

Just to give you another perspective, I am 3 weeks away from my exam so I am doing 2-3 blocks per day so that I can finish in the next two weeks. Like Bebix alluded to though, I'm only able to do more questions a day because I have already gone through all the material. If you havent gone through everything at least once, I think 1 block a day is a good rate.

Break it down into bite size pieces! If you just think about doing it all, it can get overwhelming. Look at which subject is your weakest and start there. Maybe you just need to do some of Kaplan and not reread the whole thing. how are your scores in UW? Have you started FA? FA is sufficient for a lot of subjects if you already have the foundation (i.e. if you read Kaplan, Goljan, etc at least once before) and much more manageable than Kaplan, so if your doing reasonably well in some topics maybe just use FA. Just try to take it one day at a time and just give it your all each day, things will start coming together.

thanks alot height..i did few things from the uworld offline before but i am doing it online now.i have done few blocks with a cumulative of 65%..
The thing is I can't recall alot of things so I am thinking of doing 60questions a day and then revising these topics.I have not done FA well but i am doing it now..May be I can manage it.
