Hi DrDarius
Could you please elaborate a bit more about your experience at USMLE success academy's CS program? I am planning to take their course. Do they actually have 1 MD instructor at every 3 students? did they give attention to your weaknesses? How true is their claim of having 100% pass rate? I feel like i need personalized attention. do u think it would be possible? It would be really helpful if you could please answer my questions. Thanks a lot!

Default CS Workshop

I would suggest GOLDUSMLEPREP. Dr. Thomas is really good and these guys are updated and have good patient actors. Some of my friends tried Kaplan, but they preferred Gold. Hope this helps.

What is the MD:Student ratio in GoldUSMLEPrep?

I'm looking for a course with updated database and a more personal experience and would not prefer huge batches like Kaplan

There is only 1 doctor who runs the whole program and each batch comprises of about 20-30 students.

Yes it is! I have a friend who took this course and she literally got frustrated because of so many students. I have no idea about success academy. That's why i am trying to ask around people but no luck so far.

Hello Asterius! When I took the course there were only 3 students in my class and only 3 students working with the other instructors to. After all the cases that I did and my colleagues did we were told exactly what we did right and wrong and then they showed us how to improve and how to not make the same mistakes again. I don't know how true the pass rate is but I passed and so did the other students that were in my course with me. The success academy gave me a great experience and I highly recommend them because they focus on each student to make sure they are trained and prepared for the exam!

swede md, you obviously a liar and competitor. doctor Thomas went beyond call of duty to make sure each, every student got whole history, physical exam down pat before getting approval to take real exam. he graded notes for free, stayed with us till like 12 midnight going over patient notes. I PASSED using their services. don't think you took the course because can't run course without at least 12 students as they have 12 SPs available at all times for the students. Meaning 1:1 ratio. Go and study.

It is obvious fake post by SwedeMD, this is a desperate competitor trying to slander a good company, I personally know who this swedeMD is , just look at how he had similar users with MD ending...he works for a competitor, its a fake post, such a fake post may put this IP address and individual in Criminal Court. Go get a life and study
