Hi Kendra and thanks for the question! While I would not spend a lot of time on this subject matter due to the low percentage of questions, it may be a good idea to memorize/visualize some splinting techniques. Also this is an area to drive home about 1-2 weeks before the test. Below is the title of an article with good pictures of some common techniques and fracture management.

Good luck with your preparation and reach out with any other questions you may have!
