I have read many contraversial ideas about CS. Some say it is "a piece of cake", some say it is more difficult than alleged and it needs significant time and effort. Also many terrifying charts indicate declining passing rates of IMGs over the last few years.

Anyway my question is this, is first aid CS book enough for an IMG (if read and practiced carefully) to pass the exam with good chances?

Please, if you are not familliar with the subject do not vote, so the poll does not get biased.

IMGs with good English language skills do not need to read more than FA but IMGs with poor language should improve their language first before reading the FA and taking the exam

The cases mentioned in the new FA CS book will cover 99% of the cases that you will see in the exam.
There's no need to read any other book.
There's no need for the USMLEWorld course.

Fa is not enough---people fail by reading just fa

It is very true!! Please do not just read the book and take the exam. My friends are all taking some sort of course to make sure that they will pass.

THe FA is not enought for the CS exam. It explains alot about the ddxs ans does a real nice job on that.. but you need to practice live with people. thats what i did, and thats the only way you can make sure you will pass.
