IMG. I plan on going trhough FA CS and also kaplan course CSA guide.
Once I have read the pte encounter completely and I feel familiar with History taking questions and physical exam I will start with the cases. I am searching for a live study partner in Miami area to practice those cases from FA and UW.

With FA you have more than enough!...an if you really want to see the videos (waste of time & money!), just google it and you can download for no $...

totally disagree with prpink, it was worth every penny
I would not have passed if I did not know how to manage sp's
i dont recommed the free download i have seen them and compared to the 2011 they are dramtically different, the exams are samples that were put out in 08 I used the ones on the site they are more liek the real exam.
I have seen so many people fail this season so something must be going wrong, i think my suggestions csevideo and fa and my experience two attemps can help you guys pass.
