Unhappy Time for pn

Hi colleagues;
I have my test in 10 days ..... i feel ok with gathering the info, PE when there is time to do it and the closure, but my PN worries me a lot because i don't have enough time to finish it. I start with Hystory, then diagnosis with its findings and workup and i leave the PE for last and i never finished. Any advised

just practice typing patient note for the rest 10 days. The more - the better! This is the only way you can speed it up. If you type 10 PN every day for 10 days (you will type 100 notes in total) - I am sure you will do good.

Try do type HPI and PE first and then just copy-paste relevant History and PE findings in your DDx. I do it this way and it seems to work.

Do you mean copy & past function works on real exam PN.
Thanks.

Thanks.
This question was asked multiple times on multiple forums and answers are somewhat controversial. I believe more people say it does work.

A friend of mine, who took the test in May in Atlanta said that it worked. He even asked that question on pre-test briefing at the testing center and the proctor said that copypaste works.

I will be very happy if recent test takers share with us if they could copypaste on the test. This is critical for all of us, whose CS is still to be taken
