Question Newbie seeks advice

Just starting CS prep. History taking and clinical exam are not my strength. I get nervous I can sit down and study for 5 hours than take history and write notes

I have bought FA for CS. It's kind of overwhelming as I don't know any mnemonics and where to start.

I had a similar experience and it's easy to get overwhelmed with where to start. I was sort of winging it at first but then I subscribed to cse videos to help me prepare for the cs and afterwards I wished I had started with that to begin with. It helped me a lot to improve my pn and with developing a system for doing the actual exam.

Good luck!
