Default Sincere Advice Regarding Test Centers

Hi guys!

I know that USMLE exams are standardized tests. But, seems that everyone likes Houston to take the test. After Houston, what would be the next best test center for an IMG? My English skills are not the best. I've heard horror stories of different centers and I don't know what to do. But, obviously in ALL the center people fail and in ALL the centers people fail.

What would be a good place to take CS (besides Houston)?

Default center dosent matter

The center dosent matter.I am am IMG, took my test at Philly and passed.And there are atleast 2 friends who had passed. The key is to understand the exam. Practice with a partner all the cases in first aid. 3 or 4 times. Read minicases and Differentials. And practice typing the notes every time you practice a case. And try to talk to some one who had passed the test. This is my experience.
