Smile I passed finally

IMG second attempt I got a higher report this time and very satisfied with it. was filled with fear I would not make it. you can read my other post how I was very sad and now very happy. Just now waiting for ECFMG certification.

I prepared for about 5 weeks and I promise you all was used was CSEvideo and FA everyday I like because I can read first aid and then see video on how to do case.
this was priceless information for me.
good luck

I am doing ERAS application now so post any questions and I will respond

Did you take CS before or after CK????

I was planning on doing CS first in december but I checked the calendar and there is no space available until february 2012.
I guess I will have to go with CK first then. I bought UW and FA CS already, very sad about that.
How many months before exam should pick a date for the CS????

hi
chulady,
I did first aid one time with csevideo I read case then watch video of case. then I only watch cases and practice what I see in videos on family members. In exam I do exactly what I see in the videos. I feel first aid give you a good written examples of information regarding cases and videos give you the vision to see how to do first aid cases. I do this over and over many times when I take the exam I remembber the protocol I learn from the book and from videos and I follow it and I did very good on my results. i hope this helps you.I use only the current videos, I do not recoomend to use the download. The new video on the website csevideo.com is vidoe to match first aid almost exact and match actual exam very nice. good luck

evar I take ck first, it no matter which you take, just take it and get it done. one way or other you will need to sit for exam.

@ claus you can download premier but stealing is bad karmic response, I feel pity for your patients, you have spiteful personality. this is why forums are not good to come and visit.
plus premier have insane prices, not worth it in my opinon. I will say to anyone taking cs that first aid and csevido is targeted plan and download is only for 2008 you lie.

please do not send me message, I am busy with eras and your desire to only be spiteful.

Dear cardio99, I donīt see why you said that Claus is only "desire to be spiteful". I think he is only trying to help!!. He never said that you have to "download" premier. Iīm against piracy, but just for your info, now you can really download everything from the internet (yeap, even the new videos)...

Good luck with your match!
