I passed and I'm still a student. It's more about acting than it is about being a real doctor. Just act like you would if your grandmother was your patient.

u should do the kaplan 35 cases you are most likely to see. it tells u how to handle the challenging questions. well all i can say is when in doubt, try to help out the patient in the simplest way rather than have him confused. even FA gives quite a good insight to handle those q's. i thin k its in the beginning. i hope it helps. lemme knw if i can help out,.
