PASSED STEP 2 CS 4 week study , only first aid and practice with 2 classmates
Dear usmle forum i have decided to help community since it has done so much for me also. i read so many posts and lot of information is wrong and scares people. you do not need to sign up for any programs and pay lot of money for courses for CS exam. for steps yes you need it like step 1 and ck. but for Cs examination you need only first aid book for cs and then read that book over and over. same cases have come for many years now. even if center in atalnta or chicago or houston it is same cases. i have been told from many old seniors same information and am passing it to you because i also faced the same questions only few month back in june. after you finish reading the book take practice notes over and over and practice with 1 or 2 friends. have them be serious as if patient and ask questions back. always introduce urself say the name ( don't have to use real name just same name for every encounter so make it easy like john !).
the time at the end on computer for note is very short. practice 100x on computer writing a note. some of the other students taking coulld not type and were looking for proper keys and letters. this takes long time in few minutes given for exam.
