Smile Thank you JESUS CHRIST, I passed

Thanks be to THE LORD MY GOD. I am very happy I have passed, to me this is the most difficult one. I used FA and UW video. I practiced on dolls and with Americans less than 10 cases. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME

Congrats for the pass.

How did you practice on dolls, dude!

People are saying UW is not good, do you think so?

Thanks in advance

Default Thank you Jesus Christ I passed

I practised with dolls cause I had no one to practice on. I videotaped my self and timed my self. That helped me to get used to the routine of exam and assess how I am speaking and conducting myself (eye contact etc)

UW video are very good and they helped me but I did not use othe videos so I can not compare.

Default CS, All about practice

Well for those who have friends and people to practice they dont need to use dolls and those who can afford the Kaplan course can do it. I just want to encourage those who are FMG with no one to practice with full time all the time that it can be done with teddy bears or big dolls. As long as you can be really be critical in judging yourself while reviewing the recorded video (while practicing with video). I did not have enough money for Kapaln and I was working full time. I practiced two/one case(S) early in the morning before work and during the weekends about 5 cases with teddy bear. While reviewing the video I used the checklist to make sure I asked all the required questions and I can manage the time well. It paid off
All the best for those waiting for the results and goodluck to those preparing for exams.

Default Thankyou JESUS CHRIST, I passed

Well since the AMG dont have the problem of someone to practice with as they are home, I dont think the PD will care.
Anyways you use what works for you, i got the idea of using dolls from the forum and it helped me alot; otherwise I would practice only during weekends and very few cases (2 at most)

I did for three weeks in timed mode mostly 2 cases?day as I was working full time. Now Remember to find English native speaker to practice with at least 5 cases and let them grade you according to FA checklist. and find a doctor to review tour timed PN (if you will write them) and work on the comment too. All the best
