Arrow No you don't need

No. You don't need to memorize FA point by point.

The idea is to get to know the general scheme and style of how to take history and do physical.

Nobody can memorize each and every question that we have to ask in each and every chief complaint.

For examples of people with mistakes and yet they passed see this
I have these mistakes in my CS exam!

Hopefully, you'll come back and add to that thread soon
