Eventhough my first attempt with uw (offline) sux 50s-60s and my second one rocks high 80s and 90s but unfourtinately we cant depened on second attempts to assess our selves. But one way that it could work is by eliminating all the answer choices in the question and not just choosing the right answer. this way you can guarantee that you know the idea of the question and you just didnt memorize the answer from the 1st time. So in the 2nd time dont worry about timing and discus the whole answer choices if you could eliminate all the wrong ones and you end with right answer then you are doing great.
this is how what i think about how to assess your self from 2nd times on uw. Any other suggestions guys ?

Default good point

Good point but a second time has its advantages :
1- focus on material you werent familiar on first time
2-Let's you get acquainted with the type of questions asked and how to think
3-Let's you also know which topics will be most likely asked

regards
and good luck

You are so right about this.. And just to be clear i didn't say you shouldn't go over it a second time, as you didn't ask this...what i meant is that it wont be as accurate as the first time in assessing your self .. So you have to go over it a second and a third te until you are familiar with all the subjects it covers..
Good luck in yoyr study
