Question Taking the CS Exam with no USCE

Hello
I have a query regarding preparation of step 2 cs. Most people advise to take this step after having a USCE. I applied at a lot of places for obsies but was not able to grab any of them. I am going to give my 2cs next month and not feeling confident, since I'll be giving the exam without any experience in US.
I want to know if it is very difficult to get through this exam without any experience and just by practising with videos?

Default all the best

Hi Jasmine, certainly its better to have USCE but its not a MUST and most of the IMGS do without it. My suggestion would be FA, FA and FA with partner and of course ideas from this forum. I have no idea what videos you are talking about.
Do not panic, prepare hard, you will pass. Its not very difficult exam. Cheers

not a must, watch cse videos, practice them with a friend, take care of proper support, draping, open ended questions, challenging questions, practice patient notes
and you will pass with flying colors
