: For the USMLE, What's good relationship between reading and doing a lot of questions?
There are as many answers as there are students! Do whatever makes you least bored! The key with practicing multiple choice questions is to use them as a
STUDY TOOL, don't use them to test your self how many percent you get. Mark all questions you got wrong and circle the right choices. A week later you can
come back and review at a glance everything you didn't know before. This is a very efficient way to study! Of course you do need to "supplement" it with
systematic reading!

: to raise a small score, For this satuation( limited time), which is effective way in spend time? more time in stronger subject or weak one?
You cannot afford to ignore a subject completely. Gross anatomy for example is usually of relatively low yield. Nevertheless You need to study anatomy up to a
certain point to cover the basics. Beyond that, even if you put in MUCH MORE time, the benefit becomes less and less. The tricky part is identifying when
"enough is enough".
