Give us more details

There's really no perfect answer for everybody.

Several factors come into play, like what did you do before UW, What's your aim, When's your exam, Is UW a primary or supplementary source ...etc

We can give you more specific answers if you provide more details about your plan.

In general, students tend to finish one block per day in the beginning and then with time they progress towards two blocks per day. This is provided that UW is the last thing they are doing after mastering their primary materials and FA.

No need to hurry

If you feel that you are not remembering FA very well then your speed is adequate. Don't go faster as you may lose focus and which may result in low scores. Take your time. The deeper you go into UW the better will be your score.

Stop UW at the moment ...

Scoring 40% in UW is certainly worrisome. It looks like your primary reading was not good enough.

I suggest that you stop UW now. Do some other easier bank such as Kaplan Qbank or Kaplan Qbook for two to three weeks. Keep revising FA or Kaplan notes (whichever you are comfortable with). Then return to UW in late May or June and keep doing it until the exam. You may repeat the wrong UW questions if you have time.

Adding UW notes to FA is a good idea but NOT everything. Be very selective. Most of UW explanations you have already known and read before. The idea is not to memorize whatever UW is saying but rather to grasp the concept and to know how to answer twisted questions.

Do NBME after a month or so. It predicts your score better than UW.

Wishing you all luck
