Default csevideo +fa

I am new to the cs forum. I have not done any exam as of now. Going to start cs for my first exam. csevideo and fa have been recommended by my colleagues in the hospital. can anyone reply to this and share any experience with this course. I have the csevideo program for three months and I noticed the video cases are the same as the cases in the first aid. Please tell me have you tried this and did you do well? thanks

Personally, I would avoid csevideos. The videos are outdated, many mistakes in the PE ad closure, the lady who does them is very artificial and lack empathy. They just arent worth it. I preferred the uw videos compared to cse and along with fa and practice, you are set.

Not to mention their methodology for tricking us into buying their expensive videos.

There have been SIX "forum members" banned so far, because they were lying about being students. They were actually csevideo employees tricking us into buying it.

Be suspicious of newer accounts than January 25, 2016 that immediately start talking about csevideo.

what do you mean outdated? I am watching csevideos that are titled 2015 2016 and they have older ones called classics from 2010 in the subscription. The ones I bought match the 5th edition of first aid how can that be outdated? Im confused. I only came on this forum to get some help with my exam and I am being yelled at and scorned because I am using something I like and believe will help me pass my exam. omg!

Nobody is yelling at you. You asked for opinions about the videos and we gave it. If you like the videos, then use them.

Let's be honest here too.

1. How many USMLE-takers take the CS before the other two exams?

Answer: 1 in 100 (or even fewer people than that).

2. How many people on their first day as a forum member start talking about csevideo (that isn't a csevideo representative)?

Answer: 1 in 1000 (actually I've NEVER seen it apart from a csevideo representative)

RESULTS:
1/100 * 1/1000 = 1/100,000 = there's a 99.999% chance this person is a csevideo representative.

I told the last csevideo representative that their problem was that they were suddenly showing up as a new forum user at the CS step (seriously, you just decide to check out forums for CS and not for Step 1 and 2? It can rarely happen, but not commonly). So they needed an excuse to appear instantly at the CS stage, thus rachelmd gave the background story of "taking the CS first".

The other csevideo representatives also got hyper-defensive, just like rachelmd. And I called out the last representative, rolandomd. Similar names, too

Combine these statistics = csevideo representatives at it again.
