1st thing, read the 1st chapter & understand whats this test all about.
2nd thing, understand & memorize the DDx of chapter 2.
3rd thing, read & practice the clinical cases with ur friend, one time ur as physician , the other time u r SP.
One month preparation is enough for CS
Good luck

hello I want to respond to ur question on what to study for cs exam. I did the new pattern on firday the 13th and hope that was not a bad thing. I did my work for the cs exam for a few months cuase I cancelled first date I had in May then rescheduled it. I am a weak studnet in all areas so I have to be extra careful with exams. My study material was at first uw alone and I was kinda lost so I swithched to fa and read it a couple of time and finally understand what it was saying and how to do the interactions I am grateful to csevideo otherwise I would have to be lost. I used csevideo for almost 2 months cause I had a date change and when taking the exam I say for sure the videos was a nice and clean match my exam was close to what I practiced in with a sp and what I watched in videos. the patient note was hard from the begining in practice my advice is practice pn as much as you can in timed format I will discuss more of my time in cs exam when results come so bottom line see fa a few times and act out what you see in csevideo a few times at a least a month and use a partner and mix it all toghether and pray to god and you will do ok!
