Question To write or not to write notes in CK...

To write or not to write notes in CK...

Hello guys... I'm a "new" guy here.

I'm starting my preparation, and for that I'm using KNL LN, MTB 2 and 3, KNL QBank and UW... First book that I'm readin: IM.

Everything was okay until I bumped into these questions:

Should I write notes from KNL LN into MTB CK? is that really necessary? or reading both books + highlighting is more than enough? I have 4 month for these exam...

Any advice will be more than appreciated.

If you find that a piece of information is valuable for your preparation, then you should do it, because MTB is a book that needs to be read more than once. But the key to everything will be UW QBank. It will not only give you the question format you have to deal with on the real exam, but it will also train you to beat the clock (if you do your question blocks timed ).

I write it all down.
I will not have much time during my further reads to go back to KLN

I write everything down too.
The only problem is fitting UW as well! Probably gonna use big post-its or whatever.
