do most of you do the questions in the 1001 book while your doing or studying that lecture or do you finish all lectures then go back reviewing the 1001 questions

i tried to do them all while working on the corresponding lecture, but that was way too much work. Now, I just have designated day in which to work on them.

I first do the lecture questions and the 30 minute exams. If I do poorly on both then I will try to complete most of the questions for that corresponding lecture in the 1001 book. Otherwise, I do fewer of the questions. Regardless I do them afterwards but never on the same day that I do the lecture.

Are the EK1001 books like the 30-min in class tests? Or are they like the section sample questions? Clearly, the 30-min tests, being passage driven, seem more useful unless you're having problems with fundamental concepts.

Just trying to figure out if I should get some of them. I've just started studying, but I'm getting 9 & 10s (mostly stupid mistakes, not huge flaws in thinking) and just want more practice taking passage questions without using the AAMC practice exams until it's closer to test time.

I did them after I had read the lectures for the week (I followed the study schedule). After doing those and the Mini-MCATs for the week, I reviewed the lectures after going through the questions so that the material stuck better.

They are just like discretes. I thought they were good to pound in the concepts of the sciences without the passage to rely on for extra information.
