Question How to improve ICE

I failed in ICE portion of CS. Really disappointed and came out of no where.

My exam is in January but trying to get a closer date. How do I improve in the ICE portion. I attended the Kaplan course and went through first aid. What exactly are they looking for and how can I improve?

I didn't type the patient note in caps lock, does that really matter?

Did you use the mini cases of FA?
I think this is pretty good for Dx and work up and those are parts of the ice.

Practice typing the PNs with a timer and also go through the mini cases, they will help you narrow your differentials.
