Smile dgrasic CS Exam Experience

i did my exam back on May 1st in Chicago. i had some really bad days leading up to the exam. i flew back from Croatia 2 days prior, i was really jetlagged, i was sick the morning of and my flight was cancelled the day of the exam but fortunately i caught a plane 4 hours later so i came to Chicago 1 hour before my exam started. Coming in i was really out of it and loaded up on coffee because i was passing out during the introductory film. i made a bunch of errors throughout the exam just by being really fatigued but I ....
- introduced myself, shook hands, drapings, asked to sit down to write notes, was confident and smiled
- localized physical exam concentrating on the generalized problem
- always summarized the physical and history and then summarized what the 2 most probable diagnosis were and what tests id run
- answered all question
- used first aid and the videos

Result: passed

any questions. ask away?
