Wink Passsed the CS, experience

passed cs..gave my exam in phili in april on 19th,,and by gods grace i passed.
was scared because its cs right and i m a img u never know.worst thing was the result was on my birthday.anyways want to give away my tips ,
people say practice ya its really imp but those cse videos r really worth.i mean i didnot buy those but 2-3 r available on there site.they r pretty the first aid ,,its really like a bible i know its boring ,,nothing more then a lulabibut its worth it.secondly practice 10 cases ,,,if not even live ,get hold of someone on skype,it helps .
just be calm ,confident at many times in my case i was one of 2 imgs in my group .obiviously i thought if i had a chance all of them being american graduates,but my husband kept on telling centres dont matter.
last but not least practice ur patient notes .and yes dont worry bout physical examination.remeber those r actors who r bluffing
.just practice the those lines like knockin,introducing ur self,being considerate,draping patient.askin them if they r comfortable.offering tissues,(i remember i kept on giving tissues to one of them.till roll was empty).basically dont stop ask questIONS .say mr/miss/say sorry even if u r not.say thank u.. wash ur hands..explain why r u doin the physical examination.and yes dont fumble if u forget things its ok ur human.most imp...
u can waste 1 min in front of the door..write down patients name age... diagnosis and differntial diagnosis,,doesnot matter if ur the last to enter
,,,,remember god and u r differnt take experiences from everyone but in the end its u and ur mind and how u can act.
