Listening CSE Videos. Are they reliable?

Hello everyone, I have heard of people using CSE Videos. But are they reliable? Is there any one who has passed after watching those videos? Thanks in advance.

There was THIS thread not so long ago that discussed this matter, in fact the discussion was so heated that people got warnings and things went crazy for a while.

I would recommend you use the search function the next time you want to open a thread, just so that the forum is not polluted with the same question over and over.

I saw that thread too and I think its just angry outburst, I ignored it because I know alot of other people using csevideo and I went ahead and got the platinum subscription its for a month and I like the videos alot for alot of different reasons I will post more of my experience with csevid as I continue to use it but for now I'd say yeah its pretty good I would recommend it so far.

I subscribed online to csevideos back in May and when I took the exam it was nearly identical to what I saw in the videos. I felt a lot better about my performance especially with the PN. When I took the exam the first time before subscribing, I had some issues with the timing. But I did a lot of practice with the timed PN on the site and that helped.

Maybe later I will use CSE too.
All best with your prep.

I've explained my impression before. I think it's useful in the very beginning! But beware of imitating their robot dressed like a doctor! This will probably cost you a failure in the ICE component.

I don't regret subscribing to cse. The videos are identical to what I experienced in the exam and they were helpful. I think the doctor in the videos is very professional. Either way, the exam was not about how well I can imitate someone.

Without discussing any details on the cases from my exam, I will say that the videos on the csevideos site accurately represent what I experienced.

Just took my exam a day ago and in a word csevideo pretty much matched it to the detail. I will write a detailed explanation of my experience in the exam and what I used. good luck to all those waiting on results. next step here I come!

CSE videos were very important to me.
With them I could create a system. And as I haven't had any USCE so for me was very important...

But don't think that they are the only way to go...
