I just wanted to share that reading all the way through the full study guide, DSM, and using the audio CDs were very important in getting my mind back into the swing of assessments and the overall clinical nature of the material. But the absolute BEST thing was reviewing test taking strategies. Being familiar with where to go, what the environment would be like and In particular the day of the exam, being fresh, relaxed, and budgeting my time while planning for how to manage flagged questions.
If I would have gone in my usual “fly by the seat of my pants” mode, I’m sure I wouldn’t have passed!
Thank you for such great material and the variety as well as information for those tips from previous experience. Good luck everyone!
