Default I passed.. This is my experience and tips

Hi, i just received my report on the step 2 cs 2 days ago.. and i was so happy... i passed thank God.
I can said that the exam is a stressfull experience mostly for shy person like me. I did it in Chicago, nice people at the center and nice location, it is really close to the airport.
Of the cases I can said that i had like 2 complicated cases and 1 phone call case.
some of the actors are really nice and the other ones are so serious and try to get u with dificult questions...(about 90% of the cases and questions are in the book)
I just studied from FIRSTAID, but i memorized all the protocol and type of questions for every case. After that, I practiced all cases with a mate but i think which really helped me was that I practiced in the real stage and with real time.... all as if we were in the real exam... we started the clock since the "knock knock" until the end of the note, and then we did coments...really this test is practice practice practice...but live practice...because you do all actions and u wont forget them when u are in the test (by skype or chat u just practice the questions that u supposed to ask but that is just a little part of the whole encounter) ...
I'm a IMG and the english is also a big deal in this exam...so try to speak slow and clear and always smile....really the actors feel that u nice and confident and that is the icebreaker.....be nice with the "patient" and always put in your mind like every case is real so act with consideration for the patient....consideration for pain, sadness..i have a case with a patient who was cried...so please... act according to the situation...good luck..... IN THE TEST THE PATIENT ARE ACTING... BUT YOU DON'T YOU ARE A REAL DOCTOR....
