Post Beware of csevideo

I have been researching csevideo and there is a LOT of controversy. I suspect that csevideo representatives are acting like students and tricking people into buying it.

Examples:

1. A long discussion about csevideo
Opinions About CSE Video

2. user "chirlly" and "heart22", all of their posts are suspicious
http://forums.studentdoctor.net/thre...p-2-cs.849912/

3. user "Helenmay", "naloxone", and "Exammaster" almost all of their posts are suspicious:
http://www.usmle-forums.com/members/exammaster.html
http://www.usmle-forums.com/members/helenmay.html
http://www.usmle-forums.com/members/naloxone.html

For example: Exammaster and Helenmay joined usmle-forums on Oct 7 and Oct 8, and almost every post has been mentioning csevideo.
Exammasters first post on usmle-forums says "Ruby two month membership with csevideos" and Naloxones first post says "CSEVideo Diamond membership"... this is just not how people talk. It's how one person talks.

Seems like we should carefully consider it before paying a LOT of money without thinking.

I guarantee that some people will come to the defense of csevideo, but it seems that only masked representatives are the ones defending it. It is "smart" to trick us into buying it, because there is so much to gain ($99 is the LOWEST price on their website).

This is just my educated opinion on the matter. You can make up your own mind.

1please don't go accusing me of anything. This is a public forum
2 those post you labeled are three years old and pointless like they don't even apply
3 I paid 400 dollars to watch CSEVIDEO and I would do it again it was as worth every penny. I got my emails answered in less then a hour or sooner most times the material including the videos audios matched my exam in detail plus my cases were the same in the exam and I could follow the fa with the csevideos and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to pass their exam with high performance first time around!!!

4 you need to careful before go around accusing people of bs! I worked hard for exam score and I take my time to come here and help other people so please watch yourself

Exammaster, you replied just as I expect you would've.

Allow me to reply to your 4 points:

1. Yes it's a public forum, and I am simply giving my opinion, just as you have. There ARE representatives of various websites and commercial products on the website that mask as students. I've seen it before, and personally even had several of them banned.

2. Posts three years old saying a product is terrible, and posts that are misleading/tricking people into buying a questionable product IS VERY RELEVANT, for better or for worse.

3. Wow, $400 is a lot to pay for videos that most people suggest are worse than free videos. Your experience is clearly different, but I am just saying it like from what I've researched.

4. I'm not trying to make a personal attack. Again I am expressing my opinion on the matter. Sorry if I've offended you, if you are a real person with no stake in csevideo. Unfortunately I cannot determine whether you are or not, I can only see your previous posts, and the fact is they are extremely suspicious to me.

Lol. If you did your research or even used CSEVIDEO you would know the videos I saw are not from 2013 those are called classics the ones I used to PASS MY EXAM are from 2015 nothing like the old videos. So really get off my case. It's an awesome program and helped me to be totally prepped for my exam from 2015 not 2013. Get your facts straight! They are not even 2013 old videos it's 2010. The post u put up is 2013 and has nothing to do with the 2015 website or videos

You can't be tricked to buy something because it's advertised. The website shows exactly what your buying And they say the videos are all new from 2015 And I would do it again. It was well worth it. Instead of using some u tube stuff those disorganized and not directly applicable to the current cs exam. I guess it depends on how badly you wanna get a high score the first time. So IMO CSEVIDEO IS the only way to do that alongside the fa and a sp.

I'm sorry your so bitter. I hope you have a great day!0

Ok dude, you stick to your story and I'll stick to my research. Let's at least agree that a good life principle is that everybody should do their own research before blindly handing over 100s of dollars to anyone.

This makes me SO ANGRY when I can't trust people's posts. I hate how some users have ulterior motives. It is a terrible abuse, misleading people to get their money. It's a crime. I wish people could be convicted, but instead, people do it as a clever deceiving marketing campaign. Argh. On this principle alone, I will never ever give a dime to csevideo. Having fake user accounts like chirlly and heart22 at http://forums.studentdoctor.net/thre...p-2-cs.849912/ is so so so so so wrong. Shame on you.

I'm not a dude. I'm a doctor. I think you are a advertiser. You spend way too much time worrying about stuff. Oh your link is from 2011. I'm feel very sorry for you. You need to get help. I hope you are not going into the medical field.

I'm not interested in wasting my time arguing with you. You have a personal vendetta. Please stop wasting students and the forums time on your imaginary issues.

May god help n bless you

My "worrying" was a little research that saved me $400. And I want others to make a weighted decision too. I'm not telling people not to buy the product, but I'm telling people what I suspect and why I suspect it. Others wcan come to their own conclusions. This is not a smear campaign. Believe it or not, I had a user banned for being a closet-representative of OnlineMedEd several months ago. I was terribly disappointed, because OME actually has excellent videos that I have used.

Anyone reading my links will agree this is not imaginary. I feel like I had to bring this up to protect other users, to at least instill them with some motive to investigate before blindly spending money.

Come on, man. This is getting silly. Just let me share discoveries I've made without attacking me. Yes I've given my opinion. And yes you've given your opinion. Let's just leave it at that. I don't think you're helping your cause. You may even be doing more harm.

Exammaster (and the others I mentioned) has now been banned by usmle-forums because he works for csevideo. Justice has been served. Please do not use csevideo. They act as students and say how great csevideo is. They are deceptively tricking you into getting your money. A company like this doesn't deserve your time or money.
