I attended C3NY. Dr. Swartz at C3NY said that one guy was recording the conversations using his/her watch. The guy messed up. No more watch in the exam. Dr. Wolfe at Kaplan said there is a clock on the wall in each room. I put a clock on the wall in my room to practice. But it is not easy to look at the clock, though. When I practice, I set a timer at 8 (end of history), 13 (end of PE), and 15 (final) min. You can feel when you should move on to the next. Hope it will be helpful to you. But I am still worried about running out of time for the closing (the most important thing in this exam). Should I write down time plus 7 min and plus 12 min on my paper when I look at the clock in the room? I will try it in my practice. Let's see if it works. Does anyone have any other good idea?
Yeah, one Harvard med student I met during my CS "encounter" (haha) said he got cut short and told his pt that he had a medical emergency (as he ran out of the room while the buzzer went off). He passed too.
