I'm doing my first pass too, but right now I am only using FA, CMMRS, and gunnertraining.com. Basically my strategy is to try to get a really good understanding of FA (actually trying to memorize alot of the micro and pharm), and just using CMMRS to clarify things or if I need a mnemonic. After I finish reading each bug in FA, I read up on that bug on GT and do the review flashcards. I will have 6 weeks dedicated time to study starting March, so my goal is to do at least 1 pass of FA before that and bank all the GT flashcards. I am not very good at just sheer memorization, but I think micro and pharm needs a lot that so I am using flashcards.
Good luck, and hope that helps!
