So maybe for you it's good choice
Yeah...due to limited time constraint, I am thinking that taking this prep course will help boosting my progress comparing to self study. Buy as u said, I don't want to get rush taking this test since it's a once in a lifetime chance to perform well. My timeline is the fast-paced study option, but I am flexible with it...if eventually I am not ready yet to take the test...I won't risk it...better prepare myself for another few weeks...maybe 2013 match will be more reasonable and give me more time to gain more us clinical experiience, but the downside...I will waste another one year....yeah life is about choosing the rite options !!!
Time is immortal when you believe on something...
