Default venetian inn &suites

i totally understand your situation because i have undergone the same. there are two hotels near exam centre which are affordable - baymount inn - 0.3 miles from centre( nearest), neat and good rooms, cost you around 85 $ a day - you can share room to reduce cost. you may find study partners and safety is ok. but never leave the hotel and go around after 6 pm it is very dangerous. Another is venetian inn - 1 mile from centre, most of IMG go there. you get lot of study partners and you will always get some girls to share room. it will cost you 55 $ a day or 42 $/day if you pay for entire week and if you share room it is only 21 $, the cheapest. room are not that neat compared to baymount. but great advantage is Anil a person (indian) who will cook indian food (very tasty) and he will take you to walmart or anywhere you want for 10 $, cheaper than taxi. most students will be from india, pakistan, sudan, china etc. i stayed there and everybody who took exam from there passed on march 4 and i am waiting for my result. all the best. good luck. do you best. etc etc

Default thanks

thanks. may god pass you and all of us (IMGs) including me.
most important thing i forgot to tell you is how good your prep may be please go at least 3 weeks in advance - 2 weeks may be a bit less because i did the same. you have to practice at least 10 - 12 cases per day and type notes immediately after that. i came with less prep and was depressed for 2- 3days seeing the guys doing extremely good. you learn a lot from those who are exam going. so plan a month or at least 3 weeks to stay at venetian inn.
