Don't forget that you can always work with your HC instructor pilot to understand these communications better, or to get a better feel for what is specifically required. If you use these voice communications, you might be doing a little more than what is specifically expected on the checkride, but they will certainly cover all of the bases!

Good luck on your checkride.
