I also have my exam at the beginning of October. Not really preparing anything special about the abstracts - it's just using some common sense and biostats basics. I wouldn't skip biostats as other questions can appear and you need to know the basics anyway. There will be other biostats quesionts most likely, so you have to prepare for those anyway.
That's just my opinion.

i think you should use 1st aid (step 1) for that purpose and then go straight forward with questions ..
