Hi all forum members,
I decided to start keeping a daily log of my progress to stay focused, which is a big time problem for me.

I plan to take my test on January 17, 2013. So I have exact 8 wks. I have done all subjects once from Kaplan. Now plan to do IM from MTB2, Peds from MTB2 and 3, the rest of the subjects from Kaplan. I am doing UW for the 1st time, only 700 questions done so far.

My plan is to finish one read of all subjects by Dec.7 .

I will be doing IM 20 pages daily + one minor subject 20 pages daily + 66 questions daily.


Nov 17 Target = 20 pages Psychiatry + 20 pages IM + 66 questions

Done with 20 pages Psychiatry smiling face Will watch videos and will report after finishing the videos.

  #16

So sad that still could not finish 30 pages....too many distractions disapproval

I am starting the block of questions now, and will finish the remaining pages after that.

STAY FOCUSED....STAY FOCUSED.... I CAN DO IT!!!!!


  #17

What I finished today:

30 pages IM
10 pages Psych
One block questions


It's been a whole week and I could not pick up speed yet... I found out two reasons for that:
1: I get frequently distracted and lose time
2: I start my day late.

Will try to fix both problems tomorrow. Will wake up early and will start early.


  #18

Starting with IM

Will report every hour to stay motivated.


  #19

Read 6 pages.

Will report in an hour.


  #20

Finished my today's IM portion smiling face

Lunch Break!!
