Star I took my exam yesterday

first of all if yur going to philly plan ahead, the trains are late and you have to wait i took a train from boston to philly stayed at my parents two days before the exam big mistake the commute was long!!!!!!!!!! i stayed at the crown plaza 200 buks a night was ok did not sleep tho

the exam 12 encounters same as everybody, not hard at all, i didnt get any weird cases but dont ask, cause i cant tell you

if you have any questions let me know my goal was to take it in less than month and i did. i feel good about it the other steps were way harder then this one

there was mix american grads and lots of others couldnt tell who was who didnt care

i used csevideo got it for a month used it for about 3 weeks and chekced out the first aid at least an hour or two a day

post ur questions happy to respond good luck to everyone dont fret it aint that bad!

hey boys and grils! love that
first of all I'm in love with dr Jennifer Reynolds, I'm gonna email her and ask her out.
so patty now your all over me, i emailed you no response since i took the exam you wanna know huh! by the way i did use the link you sent me wasn't sure it looked confusing so i ditched and stuck with csevideo.
MY STUDY PLAN:
i got the monthly package and really I wasn't sure if some chick could help me ace the cs like the ads say, but they are a hundred percent like the real test no doubt, the other one you showed me patty aint like it at all. uw is good to look at for full exams but the exam was more like csevieeo pe i used all their stuff.
i started out with a one month membership and after my second view i figured i be ready in no time so i got an earlier date and took it.
im at the hospt all the time so i did it fast
i would recommend if you have the time csevideo 3-4 weeks tops if you late in your studies or behind in clinical go 4-5 weeks and be totally into it and you do fine, im telling you those frekin videos are so much liek what happened in the room i was blown!!!!!!!! after i saw that i decided i loved dr jennifer reynolds! she's mine! and shes hot!
i tired to find sps on all kinds of forums but you guys don't like me or AMGs couldn't find one so i used the med students 2nd yr and some others taking cs in a room at the hosp we practiced on each other a few tims and that worked.
i saw some psot earlier from you patty about the pn your doing it right just type it, use the assessment exam over and over till you got that pn pinned down i did that it was a breeze in the exam, i have big hands so typing is my worst but typing on csevideo over and over man what a relief its over and nice flight to la dude!!! xo xo dr ryenolds keep up the good work. will you have dinner with me? here is my email
good luck pm me or email if you need more bs
louisdoc04@hotmail.com

Hi Drlouis,

Wow! You must be relieved! Thanks for sharing your experience.

What's your plan for other steps?

Good luck
