I am taking the course right now live in Chicago. For me it is helpful however I wish I was prepared for CS before starting the course. It is expensive but we get exposure to the SP who are not doctors or your family that you are practicing on, it makes huge difference as I struggle and go blank when enter the room and cannot recall what to ask. After first case it got better at least with communication and closure, which SP state very important. Also, we practiced to perform physical exam the way CS exam expects you to perform, I could have asked doctors I work with but they never perform everything on the real patient compared to CS test. Plus you practice under pressure and stress with real time limits that pushes you to analyze where you stand. If you will be taking live course, practice for at least 2 weeks before taking it, and take it 2 weeks before your exam. It will give you time to eliminate mistakes you do on kaplan's simulated exam.
