I know that I can control the number of questions in each block ,, I'm just asking about the total number in the whole bank.

Dude your score is awesome ,, keep rocking

Roughly around 2500 questions... The problem i have is.. Many questions i am not usually sure 100% sure this is the answer cause there is always 1 or 2 distractor(s) ... I guess it is the same with everyone else... Dude i have hardly done 300 question to tell me im doing great... Fingercross... What i normally do is do 10 question at a time in timed mode and study/revise the concerned topics of each question retrogradely...

Well this is a good method for study initially ,, but be ware

The real exam is lengthy ,, You will feel terrible by the end of doing 8 blocks in line ,, So my advice ,, do one block (46 Q) at a time so as to get familiar with the time factor and you can review the entire block after finishing it ,, be ware of time factor in the exam ,, Good luck

Dr Ahmed is right.. I mean i've been solving only 10 Qs at a time and then review the answers..but i got used to this :s so when i tried yesterday to solve like 30 Qs at a time, man that was awfull i couldn't wait till i end the block it was harder and i rushed the last few questions so i can finish the whole thing .. So beware about getting used to solve only few Qs at a time, and do a whole 46 Qs block once in a while timed..
When are you planing to do the real thing guys ?

Hi,
I also started solving UW (around 100 IM questions mainly ID and hematology) and im around the 77th centile..so is that reassuring or not? I am really worried and would like to know your feedback.

Another thing is that I realised im am weak in ID..is there anyway to improve my scores?

I have my exam scheduled in feb too.. >.<

Thanks in advance and best of luck to all
