i'm hoping for 5 weeks, putting in 8 hour days. how long did it take you??

just curious how i should pace the reading, using both BRS path, phys, and pharm cards. will start Qbank once FA is memorized.

thanks.

That would be a phenomenal waste of time...unless of course you slacked during MS2. Be very comfortable with FA...don't bother memorizing every line (except maybe pharm side effects).

I'm not much of a memorizer but I would try to know the common associations in the back of FA cold.

FA should just remind you of what you already know. If you find that there is a lot of stuff in FA that you are unfamiliar with, then it might be worth your while to learn the concepts well from a more thorough source. I don't mean to sound harsh - FA is a very useful book, but it is not a good use of time to memorize it.
