Embarrassed Exam in a couple of days...

Need advice regarding how to spend these days... I'm sick on practicing cases.

Have practiced all 44 cases three times with a partner with a timer set for 14 minutes, and 9 minutes for patient note.

What's the best thing to do with these two days without getting rusty?

(Been reading mini cases just to keep my mind occupied).

I felt the same way towards the end. If you haven't already practiced physical exams, now is a good time. Watch Phys exam videos and practice different maneuvers...that will give you break from doing cases over and over. Practice note typing for a day or two, try to finish within 8-10 mins.

my friend took the exam, and what he did was to review diff. dx'ss, then take a stop watch and make sure you can hit all the points and close within the time frame... if you have done all the cases over and over again, then just practice the approach, the empathy, the movements.. thats what he was telling me.... im planning to take mine in a few months.....

good luck!!
