Yeah I would like to know this too. I know the rule is using First Aid CS, but are there other resources that we can use to pass this exam (videos or other books) and how to approach step 2 CS exam ?

Videos, books and practice are all helpful, but also consider a live course. CS, uniquely, is a performance so requires rehearsal with experienced feedback rather than just studying what's in a prep book. We write this not because we offer the courses, but because we meet so many students who end up taking a course after realizing they needed more intense, structured practice and detailed feedback. Regardless of how you prepare,

Good luck!
