Arrow My CS Experience

I wanted to share exam experience with you guys. i got my result today and i passed. I took the exam on april 24th in chi. i am from the states and went to a Caribbean medical school.
For my preparation i used the first aid cs book, Usmle World, CSEVideo and i took the one day Kaplan practice session ( where i went in and practiced the whole encounter there).
today as i look back, im glad i used all of these resources. the first aid book is a must (go over the mini cases too). Usmle World i did because i wanted extra practice. the CSEVideos videos give u an idea of what the encounter is like and what to expect. im really glad that i did that practice thing with Kaplan.
Because it helped me realize some mistakes that i was making but didnt know i was making them. and so i saved myself from making these mistakes on the actual exam. and i picked up a few a few pointers too.
during the exam, I basically took it one case at a time. just forget about what happened in the previous room, and go into the next encounter with a fresh mind. Don't ponder about mistakes that you made because it may ruin your next case.
when i was done with the entire thing, i came out with the worst feeling ever. and thought that i for sure failed the exam. all i could think about was the mistakes that i made. it took me awhile to get over this.
hopefully this helps. good luck to everyone!
