Smile My CS experience; for those worried about the exam and results

I took my exam on the 4th of April, right after my peds clerkship. Didn't have much time to study because of it.

Read first aid and practiced cases on skype as much as possible.

Drove to Atlanta with friends the day before the exam (No studies)

EXAM DAY-

Had the afternoon slot so pretty much freaked out in the morning.
Screwed up the first case completely, no counseling, no closure.
Kicked one of the SPs by mistake when I crossed my legs while sitting. (apologized a hundred times)
Was not able to reach the final diagnosis in 3 cases.
Didn't do the complete physical on most of the patients.
Ran out of time in 3 cases.
Did not answer one of the patient's question correctly.

RESULT-
Passed with high performance

ADVICE-
Be polite and understanding.
Always drape the patient.
Apologize for when you are wrong.
use simple language when you explain the problem to your patient. eg.-I would like to do a sonogram to take a picture of your stomach.
When you don't know the diagnosis. tell the patient that you are not sure, would like to run some tests to find out and give the differential diagnosis
Do not neglect the patient note while practicing at home. It can take longer than you expect it would.
.....and as every one says- Practice is the key.

All the best to everyone
