Default The USMLE success academy is amazing!

I took their course and it was amazing. The course has only 3 students to each doctor and the people teaching and working with you have passed all their usmle exams and are licensed doctors. I don't know about the other program so I cant make a comment. I highly recommend the success academy because you will cover over 25 cases with them and its not just a lecture like other places do. I was doing the 25 minute patient encounters with the SP and then we would discuss each case in great detail with the doctors. I was very weak with my physical exams and the closing of the cases and they help me fix all of my weakness.

Default Failed with Gold USMLE Review

Hello Andy! I took Gold USMLE review a while ago and I failed my first attempt with them. Dr. Thomas is a very nice guy, but the course does not deliver. I was told before I registered that I would have experience with different SPs, that they would train me on my weak points, and that I would have daily patient encounters during the course I purchased. All we did (there were 10 other students in my course with me) was discuss cases and each student did a few cases themselves, but the amount of actual training was non-existent and it was more of a "lecture" type course than a "hands-on" training course. I don't know anything about the other course you're asking about, but Gold is not the way to go here. After I failed I ended up practicing with a few buddies of mine and I passed. This isn't the right approach for everyone so it's good that you are doing your "homework" before taking the exam. Best of luck!!
