    I have been doing Kaplan questions and half the time when they reference the FA page its not relevant to the question. Is UW like this?

    Unfortunately, UWorld does not provide FA page references. Rx does.

    That sucks! How do people annotate FA then? Find the relevant information in the index then write it in? That sounds like it would take FOREVER!

    Your goal should be to have FA down to the point where you know where to turn to find a topic. It gets faster.

    I haven't tried it, but maybe having an electronic copy of FA could help initially until you become intimately acquainted with FA.

    Truth. Its funny how familiar you get with one stupid book after 6 months of studying. Meanwhile, I can't tell you anything that has gone on in the world since Thanksgiving (minus TMZ).

    I used an electronic copy of FA to find stuff and then annotate into my hardcopy.

    This.

    It's so much faster to find words, or cross-reference a side effect or w/e throughout the book using the pdf version.

    Where did they get the pdf originally though? The one I have is digital, not scanned pages.

    You should read FA cover to cover (the content, not actually cover to cover) at least 1x before doing any q-banks. Add tabs for each section and you'll know and quickly find everything.
