Help Help with CS live preparation courses Please.

Good Morning, I would like some help from you all Please.
I took the CS 3 months ago after listening to kaplan audios and studying with a partner. I failed the Data Gathering only, I got the lowest point. I would really like to enroll in live program in order to get some coatching. I was thinking of the Premier review in NY, which offers 60 cases videos online to prepare and 2 days of live encounters. Has anyone heard about this course, and are there any suggestions, i am scheduled to take the exam on the 1st week of September.
Thank you, Iva.

Default Bad luck

You failed in data gathering! That's pretty strange for an IMG who passed the CK

It looks like you had a bad luck. Because once you pass the communication and language part of that exam the rest is usually easy.

Anyway, regarding Premier Review they have descent vote here in this poll

Default Help CS live course

Thank you for your response, I thought it was bad luck, I don't even understand I asked all the questions of the First Aid, practice everything, passed all the other parts even the patient notes, the lowest was the Data. Anyway I guess maybe I had to practice with someone who could better advise me and tell me what I did wrong. I saw the poll, I was just wondering if anybody had taken one of these courses.
The USMLE world is higher in the poll but there is no live patients or monitors to guide you. I was thinking about the Premier review step 2cs 2 days practice. Anyone knows if they really give you the individual attention you need.
Thank you, I appreciate it.

Thumbs Up try them

I've done Premier Review last January.

It was a very nice three days where I learned many things from them. They have SPs and they will teach you what to ask and what to write in the patient note. I passed the exam in February.

I guess they are good option for you at this point.

Good luck
