I am very fast in typing and I want to type during the exam not write on the PN.
Is that OK?
How do I train myself on it before the exam?
Should I use regular word processor such as MS Word :confused:

There's one problem with that practice page which is it has no live bar showing progress and how much space left.
That progress bar will be seen in the exam

In my exam I was typing but then I had to write the PN in one case because it was an insurance form that has to be filled and cannot be typed!

It's a simple pre-employment form

You'll know that when you enter the room. The SP will give you a pre-employment form that his new employer has asked to be filled by physician.

It's a simple form where you have the history and physicals and the usual stuff.

Usually such SPs has no chief complaint but you may find something when you dig in the past history.

It's easy in one way because you can start writing your form right from the beginning of the encounter so you more time for it but on the other hand it's usually takes longer time than the typical case because you know you have to ask about each and every system and not only focus on the system of the chief complaint.
