After you do you finish your questions, you might say something like Mr. XXX thank you very much for answering my questions, now i need to proceed with the physical examination, but first i will wash my hands, is that ok with you?.. they will say yes, they are actors, not mean people.

When you wash your hands, don't give them your back, give them your side, so they can see you washing your hands properly and with soap. To avoid the silent moment you might ask , is everything in the room ok for you.?

hope it helps, i started csevideo today, they give you lots of tips there, check it out. It's worth the money i think, considering it's a very expensive test.

I watched CSE videos they have tons of mistakes, I also took a course , Learned a lot from the course, but in the course they said dont ask questions while washing hands.

Well if you read different literature for this exam, it's not always the same, this is not an exact science. You might also wash your hands and you could use the time to think about what will your closure be, or what are you going to do with your PE.

I don't understand, if you saw CSEvideo (online .. because the offline version sucks), you took a course, why do you have this question. Use a method and stick with it.
