I mean I want to know what we need to do to pass step 2 CS.
Is it difficult? do we need to take any coaching ...etc
I mean what exactly we need to do are we tested as a doctor with diagnosis in hand?
Actually I am studying for step 1 and I want to be sure I know everything about each step I need to pass so that I can decide as an IMG where I stand so that I could think of my future:confused:
