    Hey guys, just was wondering if they provide us with blank paper to write out all our quick thoughts and notes in the exam. This way it'd be written for questions that may show up according to the same topic later. Let me know and of course good luck!

    Hey guys, Couple of questions: 1) Are you allowed to wear a watch inside the testing center? 2) Anyone in the US/Canada have problems using a pashmina? I know these seem strange, but I'm just basing this on my school rules.. and I couldn't find anything specifically online.

    The official usmle bulletin states that candidates are not allowed to bring personal stuff, paper, pen, etc. to the test center. So do the prometric centers provide paper/pen to candidates for making rough notes? Or making notes itself is not allowed altogether? Previous test takers, please comment.

    I took a DIT class and they stated that once you enter the test center you can quickly jot down notes on the erasable marker board that the test center gives to you. For example, you can just quickly jot down formulas that you might think you'll forget. Is that okay? Or are you only allowed to...
