Wink chienpolska CS experience

Hello all:

I took my CS in May 13 and got my results in June 26th and pass( second attempt), couldnt be happier anymore! And here is something I would like to share:

First of all, I want to thank my fantastic study partner from Bakistan, without your help and advice I would never make it. You are awsome!!
I have been struggling with CS for over 1 yr bcz I failed my first attempt last July and I couldnt match bcz of this. From this January I praticed with my study partner, so my preparation time is 3 months. Please dont check forum how much time you need for this bcz everyone is different and this exam is so weird that forum is not that reliable, bcz no one knows how they grade it. Plus, this is my second attempt, so i really dont want to risk.

I never go to any single review courses so my material is basically FA and materials from my study partner.

general advice: ICE: ask someone to check pn for you and follow all PE from dr. swartz( youtube can find it)

CIS: Just do whatever you will do in the real clinic

SEP: this is the filter for us IMG, so plz practice practice and practice with someone else, dont just close the door, lock the room and practice urself. find someone who is going to take exam too, dont try family or friends who are not taking the exam bcz they are not on the same boat so they will not give you too much constructive advice.


and last but not least, this exam really needs LUCK, so GL to my conrads on this forum

Congratulations on passing. I have a question. What did you do differently on your second attempt in order to pass?

practice is issue, you really need lots of practice to form your way of dealing this exam!! But be sure to find a good partner, either via internet or face to face. otherwise you are just wasting ur time.

if you like one case a day for next yr then i think this is more than enough. i watched CSE at the beginning then i think this is just wasting my time bcz she is making a lot of mistakes, so i dont recommend you to subscribe it at the beginning or any time of your preparation.
