Hello
You will need a fresh copy of the most recent csevideo and Ed five of first aid
Watch each video they match the new first aid. Get the 2015 csevideo for say like two month and practice each one with a sp and read the fa cases I passed doing this. I am helping other students and they tell me this also has helped them to know exactly what's in the exam. The csevideo room and history and pe are perfect for the real exam. If u have questions I can help.

I got a copy of Kaplan core cases 2013, and FA 5th edition, also i have many videos courses like UW videos, Kaplan also, and premier videos course and CSE videos... Is a good idea to read both books : FA and Kaplan core cases?

Hi I did cover the kap cases and it was not like the exam at all for me I used csevideo 2016 and the recent fa this combo was in exact mirror of my exam cases and experience. For me the csevideo in the video exam room instruments sp and almost every detail I seen in my exam. Most important was case outline was like fa and video match cases in my exam and each fa case. I pd 45 dollars for complex book and put more time in trying to see what it was telling me then studying. The csevideo fa new Ed is worth the money. I did prep for almost three months. Because of my children. I tutor now for free based on csevideo and fa. If you need help tell me.

Mommy is right. Good advice. But fa alone is not enough even if you are in clinicals. The Cs exam is different there is alot of acting and your time is limited you have to be precise so a video course like Csevideos shows you how to use those 15 minutes is worth it. You need to know how to use the time like first minute for intro the tie for he separated by time for pe. Definitely use csevideo to manage your set up follow the doc and you pass. Imo

Only place to get current csevideos is on the website and they give you every year they have. Like they have a set of classics all the older videos then they have like four sets of new ones I think are 2015. The money is worth it imo

I strongly recommend the gold cs review it was very good and they will grade your notes up until your exam they have a new grading system now for the patient note
It was very helpful and their cs notes are very good
