Hi,

The minimum passing score is 190.

Yes!! I would definitely recommend you to do Kaplan Qbank and Archer's CCS workshop ... I have not taken my exam yet, but I did Archer (it helps you to have picture about CCS + strategies) and I am doing KAplan Qbank (more questions never hurt you).

Good luck!!

First do listen to archer strategy 3 hour lecture....then try practising some cases of CCS from UW......and finally again listen to full Archer before you solve all cases in CCS

Here is the official webpage of Archer http://www.ccsworkshop.com/Pay_Per_View.html
I bought workshop for $88 (36 or 40 hours) ... the most useful it is first 3 -5 hours (CCS strategies)

exam is approaching.. only 6 days to go! .. done all of UW once and my score is 59 % .. done 43% of kaplan.. done 30 cases of UWCCS and trying to read through the MTB as much as i can.. listened to just an hour of archer!!!.. i would be confident to say that there are some differences in the approach to certain clinical situations if you compare kaplan and UW.. the CCS cases are really fun to do but the software is disappointing =( .. anyone who agree?.. best of luck for all of you..
