Hope you all ace it
After you pass the exam (I have confidence on this) please tell us how you feel after you left the test center, and the mistakes you think you did.

Default congrats to all future docs!

Hi everyone,

I am an IMG from Bangladesh. I started preparing for step 1, but ended up taking step 2 CS first to increase my confidence before step 1. I took my CS on Nov 5 from LA center n my result came out today, Jan 30. And i passed!!!! I got high with star in CIS n high in SEP & ICE.

Preparation time: August-October
Materials used: First Aid, CSA vdos, UW vdos
Course taken: Kaplan 1 day practice exam
Where i put my effort: timing, CIS ( i took proper hx, cut down on my physical exam n did a good closure to make the patient happy. i dealt w/ challenging question in almost every patient bcoz i had time even after closure!)

Here is some tips for those who will take CS in near future:

1. Firstly, all i used for preparation is: First Aid 2012 edition. This was my main study book. i went through it 3 times & reviewed the difficult ones before my exam. Other than this, i used Khalil's Note & Neeraj Note for mnemonics. And yes i made my own mnemonics too. Fun way for memorization!!! BUT DON'T MESS UP WITH IT. I know some people who use too much mnemonics n ended up with blacking out! Oh I used CSA vdos to have an idea about the encounter n Uworld vdos for physical examination.

2. The best way to prepare? Get a study partner, online/live. You need to practice a lot n lot n lot. practice cases with your partner. When you are fluent enough in history and closure, then go for practicing physicals. You don't need to be perfect in physicals, you just need to do it.

3. Finally when you are done with everything, practice it within time limit. VERY IMP: Watch your time!!! I tried to finish every case within 12-13 mins. In real exam, it takes longer than your regular time.

4. For patient note, try to type a patient note everyday. make your own patient note while you practice cases. try to memorize the short forms of commonly used words like w/, w/o, NC/AT, PEERLA etc to save time.

5. Some people told me before CS that Houston is better for IMG. But i saw many IMG who failed in Houston, but passed in other centers. So don't get confused. Some people say that LA SP's has problem w/ our accent. I don't think so. Just try to speak slow. You can correct your accent a bit talking to a American friend for Intro & Closure. That's what i did. It took just half an hour, but was helpful for me.

6. Finally just before my exam I took Kaplan 1 day practice exam. If you have interaction w/ american patient, you don't need to do it. As i didn't have that, i took that test 15 days before my exam to increase my confidence level. It helped me to find our my weakness n work on it so that i could perform better in real exam. If you want to take practice exam, my advice will be take it when you are completely done w/ your preparation, but at least 5-7 days before your real exam.

7. On exam day, you need to be really confident and calm. It's a 8hrs exam. So keep up your energy. Don't panic if you don't perform well in one encounter. Go for the next one w/ a clear head n mind... otherwise it will spoil your next encounter too.

I think that's enough. Hope my experience will help you a bit. Good luck!

Adrita
