Hawaii Passed my CS in 4 Weeks

Hi, I am new to this forum its my first post. I was very happy to see I passed the CS exam and I wanted to come out and share that. I only have the step 1 left to do.

My story: I have two kids and new baby on the way and a Husband. I am from Hawaii and am doing clinical rotations. I did not have a lot of time to prepare. I started with the some study partners doing the things we do in clinicals and some students were saying we cant do all the stuff in clinicals in the CS exam. I looked for review courses and with two kids its hard to afford a lot. I got a discount code from csevideo and got them for one month. I could not study much because I am pregnant and it is takes a lot of my energy. So I did as much as I could. I watched all the videos a few times and did the FA with it. I was scared in the exam because I am showing and did not want the SP to think I could not do the job right. I did everything I saw in the videos I followed dr Reynolds in all the details and got my score report today I pass pass pass.

Thank you for your good work csevideo made my exam predictable and easy.

My cases: i would say all of them are in the videos set 1 2 and 3. and some from fa.

Patient note: I did alot of practice on this one because I hear alot of people have a hard time so I did it alot and was ok on the score card.

the exam: was slow in the begining and the center was hot so I was uncomfortable I had one phone peds case and the room was cooler. the people students and workers were nice, lunch was not so great bring your own. I work slacks and flat shoes and my hair in a bun was dressed like I do in clinicals.

so thats it if you need to ask anything go ahead

oalso another reason you are lying is because PN score is not scored anymore,

so I wonder
a) how bad is the bussines with Jennifer and her flawed CSS videos
b) did you Copy this post from another one some where else

now if you want to say anything answer why u lied about the score sheet showing your pPN score, why u lied about the date you got your score.

I smell a TROLL


it funny that some people actually believed her story and lied and thanked her, this shows how bad this is, we need a moderator on this forum, someone who will call out trolls for who they are. using a pregnant mother and having kids as a cover was smart but .

Smell a big TROLL

anyone else see why CSS videos sticky us closed , we can't comment in it, I guess they figured out there is nothing good that will. one out of it.

100% agreed.. I mean, this is a troll, but for me csevideos had some importance in the very beginning, to have an idea, but after a while I had to abandon their model, since some people who failed in CIS I personally know attributed their failure to the fact that they've adopted CSEvideos format.. And I agreed with them, since their method is:
- based on asking tons of closed questions, which is not graded anymore in this new format,
- their physical exam part is pretty poor (prefer UW and Dr Swartz videos)
- there's no empathy at all Dr Reynolds seems like a robot asking questions
- they're lazy enough to not adequate their contents to the new changes..

I think this is a perfect example of why not choose CSE vidoes for your prep.

CSE is crap...i watched 2 videos and wondered if i would even pass (esp i CIS) by using it...yes this post seems like a BIG TROLL. Those examinees in CSE look like as if they were chronically constipated and forced to do the encounter.

and moreover you are saying that you were able to watch these videos FEW TIMES and do FA with 2 kids and 3rd on the way?? kinda fishy but all the best for your pregnancy. Wish you success in future also.

Looks like a poor attempt by someone to advertise CSE Videos.
It is interesting to note that the CSE video thread was first moved to advert section (due to the bad publicity they were getting due to their own fault) and later on the thread disappeared altogether (couldn't handle the criticism).
Yesterday the thread resurfaced but you can't comment on it anymore.
All this shows how shady their business is in addition to poor delivery of service and a non-existent customer service.
Interestingly, 2 years ago they said "next year we will have another 120 videos with a textbook" BUT it looks like they have been sleeping since then.
I just can't believe they "dropped the ball" like that. They had the entire market of CS for themselves but did nothing for 2 years (to improve the videos/improve the delivery of service and have a customer service) except sitting on their ischial tuberosity hoping to mint money without investing anything for as long as possible!

I planned to buy CSE videos when I started my CS preparation but later on I skipped this idea and bought UW subscription.Two days ago, I was watching a CSE video on utube and realized that the lady is not even performing the PE correctly.

The thanks especially goes to NOVOBIOCIN who posted on the forum about it.

That's what GM, Ford and Chrysler did few years ago and it didn't turn out very well for them !

They are choosing such a wrong and unethical mwthod to make money and sell their material, specifically targeting ppl. Just imagine there are so many female doctors who have kids and trying to keep balance between their families and taking USMLE. They become a soft target when they see a post like this.
