You should not be shocked. The member who started the thread has been banned from the forums due to faking profiles and his reputation level has been dropped.

We cannot give you personal opinion about CSEVideo or any other third party advertiser because our policy is to remain unbiased with no preference to any of them.

Our USMLE Polls are monitored for artificial inflation and we find fake profiles voting we delete them, therefore we strongly believe that those polls truly represent the opinions of thousands of USMLE Students and they are reliable.

So if we want to subscribe it, it will be solely at our own risk, that is OK with me, but seeing such a post has created a cloud of doubt, whether it is worth trying or not, time is crucial for everyone of us, so we don't want to waste it experimenting.

we should not blame any study courses for our failures. Everybody studies the same FA and kaplan books, but some score 99, some fail. It depends on how you approach the study materials.

There is no mystery. Here are some reasons why.

1. We have a full sample on our website, this is a sample , yet it gives you a good idea of what the membership includes in terms of patient encounters. The encounters in the membership program are not samples they are done with precision and accuracy on every level.

2. No one is perfect, next year we will have another 120 videos with a textbook. Thank you, we are learning so much about students and about being a part of the USMLE world as a teacher, from everyone. Thanks again.

3. In order to pass the USMLE STEP 2 CS exam it is presumed that you have completed at least 24 months /2 years of clinical rotations in the United States or another pathway. Therefore, you are expected to maintain a certain degree of medical knowledge and insight. The CS exam expect's you to know how to apply your education and training quickly, empathetically and efficiently. Some students take this exam without that background and this can make it very difficult to prepare for and or pass the exam.

4. Where do we fall in, it is simple, not shocking and not mysterious. We are AMG's no different from any other person on the planet trying to be or become a Doctor. Believe it or not, in our rotations we learned pamhugsfoss, liquoraaaa, and pretty much a lot of the same things everyone uses with some exceptions’ to either get through rotations or pass the CS.

5. gives you a good idea of what is expected of you; and what you can expect on the day of your exam. In addition, we give you an intrinsic perspective of how to use your experience in the room with the sp. What type of behavioral protocol is necessary, the format and content in which you need to ask the pertinent questions, the physical exam done quickly, correctly and specifically for the CS exam.

Thank you again and Good Luck
