Help Set Question list/Different Question for each CC

I noticed some people say to just ask the same exact questions for every encounter, while others say to memorize all the questions for different cases. First Aid's 41 cases list very different questions for every scenario, and I found that very difficult to memorize.

Is it better to just follow the same general LIQORAAA PAMHUGSFOSS outline for every patient or adjust your questions based on each patient's CC?

I am afraid that if I don't have a "robotic" routine on the exam, I will freeze and stutter. But using such a routine, one might miss out on a lot of data gathering points (by missing out on all the questions in the 41 cases in FA). The routine works for PAMHUGSFOSS because that doesn't change from patient to patient, but the LIQORAAA/OLDCARTS part of the "standard protocols" only work for pain-related CC's.

For those who have taken the exam already, which method worked for you?
