Default Best USMLE Step 2 CS Online Courses

Post and Poll Options were last updated on September 16th, 2013.

In this poll we vote for the Best Online USMLE Step 2 CS Courses.

The courses listed above are useful for Med school students during their med school years as well as graduates who are preparing for the step 2 CS exam. Step 2 CS online courses that do not have websites or those that seem illegitimate are not listed in the poll. If we have missed an online Step 2 CS course, please post about it in the mainstream Step 2 CS Forum and we'll add it to this poll.

You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always check our Step 2 CS Courses Tag for discussions about live and online courses for the Step 2 CS Exam.

Please do not vote if you haven't used any of the courses above. Artificial inflation of votes by commercial companies will be detected and removed. Votes that are older than 18 months are automatically deleted. Companies that advertise with us do not have any advantage in this poll and we will actually ban companies from advertising with us if we detect artificial inflation of the vote.

Course links are periodically updated to the latest websites.

If you are looking for the best LIVE Step 2 CS course please see this poll

Happy voting!

Default CSEvideos SUCKS....

It does not matter what videos you get. Go for whatever you want EXCEPT CSEvideos. They are thieves with license. I heard tons of complaints before I purchase from them but I didn't listen to my friends and now I regret it. 70% of their physical exams are wrong, they just COMPLETELY copy/paste the FA (yes 100% copy/paste, they did not even change the names,jobs,scenarios) and upload some crap online with NO customer service. Their phone number is busy no matter when you call, they intentionally make it busy, you can try , go ahead and dial this number now, 845-632-0592. I really even doubt that lady in these videos is a physician, she can't pronounce most of the medical terms and most of physical exams are wrong and makes you fail your CS. Put stethoscope on completely wrong places (listen to renal artery just mm close to Illiac of crest), don't change gloves after touching the SPs soles and immediately touches the SPs face (this will fail you in real exam) and so on. Thank god I passed, but they are making a horrible job and I just wanted to let you know. There are some other companies with cheaper and most reliable videos that I don't wanna advertise for them.Good luck

csevideo is an excellent course based on my experience with the program
here are some good reviews and everyone at my school uses it and everytime I call them they answer the phone even at midnight and take alot of time on the phone wit me to answer all kinds of questions, I know several people have passed using csevideo with fa here are the other posts of people who recommend it. good luck to all taking the exams.

IMG passed in LA..

IMG passed in LA..
Hi everyone, I had my result one week ago and thanks god I passed.
I prepared for like a month, passed through first aid 4-5 times ( including mini cases), watched the CSEvedios, practiced online with 2 guys who I met here and practiced live like half of the FA cases. I had no problem with notes typing.
I was the only IMG in LA, in the first case I was nervous and it was a tuff case, I ran out of time and couldn't do the closure. 2nd and 3rd cases were difficult also but I tried to be quick and finished just on time. after that I was kindda relieved and started to concentrate better.
I had like 2 incomplete notes (one of them I had only 2 DD) but did most of the counseling and PE well.
Honestly, I was nervous most of the time after the exam till I got my result I got higher performance in SEP and ICE, and just above borderline in CIS

Good luck guys..

Ran out of time but passed

Ran out of time but passed
I ran out of time at least twice but I always counseled the patient as soon as they had a problem occurred. For example, if the patient smoked I suggested that they quit, if they were promiscuous I told them to use condoms. When I typed the patient note I started with ddx first then did history & typed the physical last. My first case was my hardest because I kept running out of time.

I studied first aid, kaplan and, CSEVIDEO, uworld. I practiced typing notes all the time. I practice with partners 5 days a week for 6 weeks. I had 1 live partner I practiced with 1x.

My advice. Use first aid book, CSEVIDEO, practice with a partner & practice typing with a timer. You can do it
