Ran out of time but passed
I ran out of time at least twice but I always counseled the patient as soon as they had a problem occurred. For example, if the patient smoked I suggested that they quit, if they were promiscuous I told them to use condoms. When I typed the patient note I started with ddx first then did history & typed the physical last. My first case was my hardest because I kept running out of time.

I studied first aid, kaplan and, CSEVIDEO, uworld. I practiced typing notes all the time. I practice with partners 5 days a week for 6 weeks. I had 1 live partner I practiced with 1x.

My advice. Use first aid book, CSEVIDEO, practice with a partner & practice typing with a timer. You can do it
