I used FA and USMLE WORD only. after took my test ( I fail ICE) I revalued my perform I noted that Kaplan book is very useful. Also now, I am using apps ( Prognosis, Cardiology, STD, diabetes) those apps are very close as real cases.

kaplan core cases book is very good for the CIS part..specially for IMG's ..you may skip practicing a few cases from it but the first 100 pgs or so are useful in my opinion

I went to a live course (for ICE and PE) 2 months before and UWorld (for PN) 1 month before my exam.
Expecting results at any wednesday from now.
If I pass, then yes, UWorld is great.
I needed the live course desperately because I've been a pathologist in my country for 9 years. As far as I know all of my live course friends already passed it but that doesn't give me any confidence.

I took the CS course last year in Chicago, and it was well worth the $$$.
after a week, I flew to Atlanta and took my exam 1 week after...the simulated exam that kaplan has is amazing...as for the book, it was great...but I paired it with first aid just to get more cases in. focus on time management and typing speed...along with everything else that goes along for this exam!
