  • Use standardized patient labs during years 1-3 to your advantage and learn an efficient yet thorough system of taking histories and physicals.
  • Practice on simulated patients.
  • There is a book specifically for the COMLEX Level 2 PE that has some sample cases. I ran through some of them with a friend and memorized a few mneumonics to make sure that I didn’t miss anything for the notes.

  • Read the instructions and watch the orientation video. No other prep was needed.
