Default Any advice for Step 1 test day?! Would appreciate that :-)

Dear Friends,
My step 1 exam is in three days. Based on what I've found here the best break time distribution is:
Block 1 and 2
10 min break
Block 3
5 min break
Block 4
20 min break for lunch and stuff
Block 5 and 6
10 min break
Block 7
Any idea on this? Do you also think this is a good strategy?
One more thing, I've heard that you may not take your watch with you into the test room; how did you keep your break time?

Also remember that if you end your block early, that time can be used for extra break. I took 1 20 minute break for lunch and split the rest up. Try to eat carbs during each break so that you are full of energy. Also minimize caffine so you dont have go to the bathroom a lot
