Wink I took the CS exam in Chicago on Friday

Hi everyone,

I took the CS exam yesterday in Chicago:

I have some small worries;
  • Peds case did not say SP name and she was angry women on phone and rushed me and i got confused and did not ask baby name
  • in cns case did not do Romberg
  • in another case SP say not one word and this i just say can you tell me more and he say all i need to ask him
  • in cough case i did not do tactile fremitus

Other stuff I felt confident about

I typed the PN and practiced each day on timed program

I did all cases from FA on my sister 2-3 each day and i say live practice was very big help for exam.

I hired a tutor for one to two days to assess me in the end and he say go for it.

I used csevideo for almost 7 weeks and followed all PE and and patient note protocol and did exact like them.

I cannot tell my cases but all cases of my exam came from csevideo and this was confident building as I see this program many times before I take the exam and I felt my exam exactly like csevideo program, you must use them for your exam with live practice and one case I had from Neeraj notes

post any questions

I just didn't understand what you mean by that...

I'm going to take Step 2 CS in Chicago in a month, I'm thinking about subscribing the CSE Video online course... So, as you said, it worths it...

thanks for your report.

I strongly believe this as an advertisement for CSE Video usmle course
why you people flood all usmle forums with your ads indirectly
you people can make ads directly instead of faking this at forums

@ all forum members

Just believe yourself and study standard books and follow NBME guidelines on how to prepare for cs exam with usmle cs tutorial

Beware of this fake posts..don't fall in to traps

@Moderator

plz monitor fake posts..its a kind request

Hi,

@jriella
the SP was very sad and very quiet he say nothing to me i say hello and do all the opening and drape for case. i am not able to say all details i say this sp talk very little i say to SP is there anything you would like to me know i have not asked you ? sp say yes my sleep problems and then we talk, SP give me the answer. this i m scared for, maybe i did wrong thing because don't know exactly what i need to ask since he say nothing for most 10 questions. he just shake his head yes or no.

@witecloud
i find the tutor in Jackson park hospital i was doing usce there for 2 weeks and he was first year family resident and i pay him 25 dollars two time to observe me doing some cases if you are in Chicago go to Jackson park hospital and see the tutor ads near the library or on I'm floor. i will find his email and send to you in pm

@alliswell

Disagree with you. She doesn't look to be advertising for CSEvideo.
The admins in this forum are very particular at this issue, they immediately remove spam and advertising posts, not only they want to keep this forum clean but also they want advertisers to pay them and not get away with free ads!

CSEVideo has been mentioned in hundreds of posts and also they advertise directly in this forum so they don't need an extra phishing post.

i took the exam in la and failed

im so sad veen sad for weeks now
i will follow your recommendations
how long do you recommend to use these videos for i just got it for a month didyou watch every day
what about the study guides did you follow them as well im talking about csevideo i just heard of them from you post and willing to try i am ready to scream that i failed once and used very expensive programs that i wont mention. i went over in each case my pe was very long and i washed my hands when i walked in and that took up much of my time cause i did not ask any questions during that one to two min i feel l lost alot of valuable moments doing that and doing a super long pe.
congrats on taking your exam and thanks for any response

Hi

I would like to ask you that where did you stay at Chicago ? Is there any nearer accommodation (either hotel or inn) near to Test center. I prefer walking distance or just 10 mins drive.

Thanks
