Nope. Not at all!

As I mentioned, most of my friends including I, havent touched a patient since over 1 and a half years or more, some like 3 years. So it doesn't really matter, since the exam is NOT about knowledge! Rather, your interpersonal skills, and how well of an actor you are!

And no, Kaplan course is NOT required. If you have fear of public speaking, or problem in communicating, then it may be helpful. Otherwise, its not required.
