Default Quiz approach

Hi guys,

I am writing to manifest some difficulties that i am facing during USMLE WORLD.

I'd be glad if some one could give me advices.

At the moment i have done the 25% of UW. I am doing 2 qz/day but I am very concerned of my attitude. I ve realized that the biggest difficulty is how manage time.
At the beginning i started with the approach that i used for the step1: reading carefully, thinking to the answer and than search the answer in the list. This really worked for the step1 but after 3-4 quiz i definitely realized that for the step2 is not the case.. so many times the answer is not there and I have to mark the most probable and not the real one. More over I have to rush for ending the quiz just in time. It is normal? maybe i am not using the best approach..
At the moment, after 25% of quiz i can say that i am on the average range but i am very concerned that my learning curve will not raise. I have the feeling that my result depends on where my eyes causally will be and not on what i will study..
how can I improve my reading ability? is this a common situation? sometimes to read faster i don't put attention to the real meaning..

I read that the kaplan qbank is longer..
do you think that I should train with that before go through UW?

Thank You
