    I have scheduled a block of a couple of weeks for reading/reviewing only...then a couple of weeks for only questions/explanations.

    My question is....on days when I do ONLY questions/explanations, how many questions (Qbank or BSS) could I reasonably get through each day? I know it varies depending on how much you know in the first place, but I am looking for a general figure here.

    My guess is a maximum of 2 hours per block (1 hour to do the questions and 1 hour to read the explanations)....does this sound reasonable?

    Sounds reasonable, but you might want to spend more time reviewing the questions (i.e. more than an hour per block). This is where doing the questions really makes a difference. It's one thing to feel like you've got the hang of something while studying/reading, but another when you need to pull out one little bit of all that info you've no doubt jammed in during the last two years. On the other hand...if you've gotten to the point where you are getting 75% or more of the questions right (without guessing), an hour should be plenty to review 50 MQCs. Best of luck!
