I have the same deal as my final in a few weeks...I suck at access (it almost always ends up being too big) but the rest isn't that bad. Circumferential filing and length control are really important. Irrigate between file sizes and I always find it helpful to go back to a 15 and work my way back to the current file, making sure each file goes down to length (tedious, I know). I am by no means an expert, but I always had problems blocking myself out and this helped tremendously.

Good luck!
