Question When do you give back the blue sheets?

Just wondering, when exactly are we suppose to give back the 12 blue sheets? Is it after every patient encounter, or at the very end altogether?

I am asking so as to write some mnemonics if I have time on one of them that I can use to write the workup tests w/o forgetting anything.

you can not write anything on a blue sheet until the announcement (2nd) is made. Each sheet is taken from you by after the end of each encounter when u finish typing

You will write your PT note immediately after the encounter, then when the time is up the proctors will pick them up.

There is a USMLE orientation video on youtube which will explain all of this

Here is the link to the first video : http://youtu.be/Sf3qORetxJs
and here is the link to the second video: http://youtu.be/A254VgSA62M

The ones you will watch during the exam day are newer, but the information is still the same

Both above comments are true.
Also you can write on the back of the blue sheet if you run out of space. But wait till the start announcement.
