I really don't think i'm going to retain all that much from these small blurbs and stupid mnemonics; i also don't think "annotating" it (w/ about 5 weeks of study time) is gonna be a good use of time. has anyone decided to not use FA. what's your strategy instead? i was thinking about picking up the "Step1 Secrets" which seems like it may be good for conceptual systems-based learning - that is easy to retain. For anyone that has this book, do you feel like it covers most of the subjects sufficiently, e.g. covering the molecular aspects, etc. OR is it primarily just path oriented?
