From what I have heard, Houston is the best for IMG- the reason why i scheduled my test at Houston.

Where did you hear that? I really dont think there is a difference in which center you take. I am guessing you know someone that failed at another center, and someone that passed in Houston or something like that.
If you wanna take it there that is fine, but to anyone else: I would just take the test center that is the most convenient for you (cheapest flight, closest distance, etc). Don't base your decision on reports like this!

It's all over the internet. Also explains why every other IMG wants to go to houston. Check out CS forum and u will find 70% IMG aT houston asking for an SP.
And I personally don't know anyone who went to houston. Just my observation from the exp of diff guys.

Hi i don't mean to say you are wrong, at the end if you are well prepare you should be fine in any center but, for what i understand you are evaluated against the people that is taking the test with you, so, more IMG go to Houston, and less go to Philadelphia, it is an advantage to be evaluated against your peers instead American graduated since they do better in the test.
