Smile Oti Nogonno CS story

Its the tym to give back to this forum,I got my result today & passed.....!!!!!this journey for Cs was not an easy one (as an IMG)!!!
I took around 5 weeks total to prepare myself..!
Materials ...FA + CSE video + you tube videos (some) + practice practice practice!!!
practice is the main key here..first I had online partner than with a live partner.
I will suggest to find out a live partner ,bcoz it will make u more comfortable on the exam day!!
The exam is not about how u diagnose,but its all about how u communicate,how u build the rapport..& all these things like empathy...!!

On the exam day after all these practice u will obviously make some mistakes but dont worry,be confident.& one more thing is at least try to practice once in front of a person who is already done with this exam ,& it would be even better if u can find some1 who is in the US health system already.
I dint do any course.So I was really nervous what gonna happen...& try to listen or read others experience of CS..that will help u to learn many things.....!!
This forum is a great place...from where i got alot of things...!!
I am really grateful to all the forum members,step taker,sabio,...all of u!!!
special thanks for nativedoctor...
really grateful to aiminhigh...,.(..i wish all the best for u)

last but not the least CSE video..i am really grateful to u guys for the special support...!!

cse video is great to hav idea about the whole exam scenario...i dint subscribe UW so i dont know about that...

I wish all the best for u guys..this exam is not hard,but dont take it too lightly ...

plz ask me any questions..i will be glad to help u...!!!now its tym to hav a gud sleep.......(so freaked out about the result that i could not sleep for last 3 nights...)!!!
