Hi Jason,

I am about to take the CS.
I would definitely do HEENT and a Neuro exam.
In the HEENT I would look with the otoscope at tympanic membrane as well as for any discharge/trauma.
I would also do a Weber and Rinne.
As for the Neuro exam, I would ask the patient to walk across the room, test Cranial Nerves and access muscle strength.

This is, of course, if I have time.

If there is time remaining, I would probably do romberg, heart and lungs
