I have a little over 8 weeks before my exam and I feel there is no point reading tons of review books. I feel I learn more by doing questions and looking up the wrong answers than reading books. However, when I read other threads about people saying they aren't benefitting from doing questions, I'm utterly perplexed. They must have a completely different style of learning from myself because I can't see how if one does close to 10,000 questions how he or she wouldn't excel on this test. My strategy is to master First Aid and then do Q-bank, USMLE Rx, Robbins and other sources. I feel like reading is a waste of time because unless you master the context of how a question is phrased with the distractors, you aren't going to really learn anything. I feel the explanations often do a better job explaining the material than the review books. Something can be taught straightforward in a review book but unless you see how that information is presented or disguised in a question, you will not answer that question correctly on an exam. Am I alone in adopting this strategy? Surely there has to be other med students that are taking this approach versus reading all the BRS, High Yield and Kaplan books?
