Default General CCS issue

Is it just me or does this happen to everybody here?
I'm really having a hard time with the CCS questions. They're not difficult, pretty much straight forward but I forget the most obvious things and get stressed because I think I don't make it in time.....
If I would have all the time in the world or just write it down normally, I wouldn't have an issue.... sigh...

Same here.I too am in the same dilemma,but I think practice is the key.The more scary part though for me personally is that there are different cases in real exam,hope I am aware of theory to attempt those CCS cases.

So, I just did that case in UW...., anyway, without going into details, it's a case that needed to be admitted, which I did, I ordered all the correct treatment and so on, checked on the patient daily while on the ward and reviewed his labs and so on.
Anyway, when I check the explanation, everything I did was correct but UW said that I should have released him after 2 weeks and then go on with different steps. Well, I know that, but I didn't make it to 2 weeks in hospital, meaning, that if you check on the patient daily, your time runs out and there's no way you make it to 2 weeks, unless you just go there (which then..., he's in hospital but you don't check on him?!?!). Any help?!?
