hi

remember th pn is not that long
its a few small pragraphs and if you do a good hx then you will zip right through it
i suggest you take some time aside fo rjust typing and practice it as much as you can
most typers dont look at the screen the whole time, even if you look at the keyboard and just look up at the screen to make sure your typing it correctly then your ok but my best advice to you is just keep typing take a few hours a day just to type the pn over and over and especially the stuff you think you will have a hard time wiht likie the pe its not in full sentences so that can be the hardest so just practice it over and over
good luck

pacemaker
i used the fa and csevideo for about a month
i passed with a great reprot

i recommend that method but i also practiced with other students and was doing my rotoations at the same time so practiced on real patients too withouth them knowing

you have to practice the behavior you see int he videos alot and watch alot and practice that pn over and over
good luck
