Default My opinion about CSE video


I am an old graduate (13 years )..I passed CS in my second attempt..I used CSE vidoe in my both trials...
I took Kaplan live course a week before my first attempt.English is not my first language ...I failed in SEP and ICE .
My First trial I used kaplan book and practiced without time (WRONG).
Kaplan was vey useful only in CIS but they over estimate ICE and neglect ICE specialy physical exam..

CSE vidoe is very useful in SEP(Excellent).It's essential if you are not a native english speaker and if you study audio component you pass SEP with ease.
It's also very useful in CIS ...If you imitate Dr.Virginia in all case and every thing you will pass.
very good in Data gathering more Questions than in FA.and realy you need ask many focused will how to ask many difficult questions.
The only weak point is physical exam....Dr virginia do it very fast so if there is a physical sign she will miss it.
my first time i did not know how to use it because i sticked to kaplan but my second time i stress on SEP audio section and i pass this component with high performance.I listened ,pause and repeat with myself.

My recommendation :It's the best for value course but search for another source for physical exam(I stated in many threads physical is important and you will find real patients and many signs either real or acting).
Many may say:no time ..But if you practice with time (you will do the manouvers correctly and in the same time fast).

My best wishes for good luck and passing CS
