there are no best cs exam ceter passing rates

trust me, this exam is tough till the time you are not aware of few secrets that it holds, the one who is aware of the demands of this 15 minute encounter thing, there is no stopping..... dont sweat over figuring out which center to go to, rather spend energy knowing how well you can equip yourself for this exam......i am being coaching with my special technique for some time now, i know secret of making it in one go, i am worth a trial... u got to trust me on this, visit me on skype id accurate777 and know what am i talking about....

I agree with accurate
There's no best center to pass
In fact, if the NBME realized that there's a center that is passing significantly more than others, they'd sure investigate the matter and perhaps have your results revoked.

Philadelphia is tough for IMGs or FMGs because most of AMGs from NY ... choose philadelphia ... and NY has high number medical schools means more AMGs ....
Philly is the center where most IMGs take the exam and therefore the officials are trying to change the cases frequently there because they know that IMGs spread the news about the cases there

most flights go to Chicago first then a transit to where you want

i will choose Chicago because of that

only one flight to there

but i will choose Houston cause it is very cheap compare to other cities if i want to stay for a week or so or might take electives and then do the exams


what do you think

choosing center is really tough ... I know a girl ... she is very good in english .. finish her med school from her country of birth ... She attended the exam in Chicago in april... but unfortunately she didnt pass ... as chicago has high passing rates .... She told she didnt had a study partner ..
I know another 3 guys ....they finished med school 5 yrs ago from their birth country .... they attended their CS in philadelphia , 2 guys on january and 1 on may ... and 3 of them passed in phili ..... they practiced a lot with partner ...

I am IMG from India.. I just checked out most of the days i wanted are not available in Chicago, so do i book in LA.. Howz the test in LA for IMG?
I've taken the test in LA and I passed. The SPs there are super friendly and you won't have issues.
The only problem is that rent in LA is little bit more expensive than Chicago.

What's wrong with the Atlanta center?

Why the low rating with the Atlanta center?
Can someone explain the reason why it is not so liked?
I have already booked my test there.

I have heard that LA is difficult.....I know people who passed in first attempt at Atlanta, Philly, Chicago. May be its subjective.......but I think it doesnt really matters where u give the exam. Just preparing enough for exam is all what matters.
