    Hi Pankaj,

    Personally I dont suggest you to prepare notes for the MCQ’s but again it differ from person to person, as because by the end of the year you will be having more than 3600 questions which may break down your motive

    Try to find out the article on internet/suggested books because you’ll be having strong meomorable on those you have invested time and energy and what you have researched rather than what you have just read.

    For example: Q.10 – It does not make sense to note down this question, if you read the article on FMKP, that will help you out to expand your learning skills
