Having done the question bank, I can say that you only need to know the basics in the ECG. You don't have to know the details. There are major patterns that are tested on the exam and you have to know them well.

Default my ECG must know list

Here is the list that I made and used to prepare. I wrote down the most common ECG's and then kept adding to the list as I came across new ECG based questions.

1. Myocardial ischemia
2. Myocardial Infarction
3. V. fib
4. V. tach
5. PEA
6. Torsade
7. Hypothermia
8. A. fib
9. A. flutter
10. SVT
11. WPW
12. Sinus tachy
13. Sinus brady
14. first/second/third degree heart block (including mobitz types)

I did not get any ECGs outside this list.. others are welcome to add on to the list..
I hope this helps you !! GL!

That's a good list, but I'd like to add, left ventricular hypertrophy, right ventricular hypertrophy, Left bundle branch block and right bundle branch block.
