Hany Eskarous USMLE Step 2 CS Experience

 

1. I did my step 2 CK exam at August 30th
, had 1 week rest then started to read first aid
which took me about 2 weeks, then I started practicing over skype with a girl who was
always busy and hardly log in in time so I had to look for another study partner in CS
Facebook groups until I found a hard worker SP and did almost all FA cases with her
over skype in about 2 weeks.
2. I found that I still don’t feel confident enough to do my test and couldn’t find A LIVE
STUDY PARTNER. One-time while opening one of the CS group, I got chance to read
one of our friends CS exam experience. She did a very nice video of 2-hours duration
uploaded in YouTube explaining how to take a history for different system diseases. This
video was a mazing, makes you well prepared for having a very précised history in a
short time. I’ll put the YouTube link down.
3. Before that, one of my friends recommended A CS course in NYC called NYCS PREP, I
was hesitated to do as I live in OHIO and it will be difficult to find an affordable
accommodation but I booked for the premium package.(Link of the Course website is
written down)
 When I went there We did 3-days of how to do physical exam and we had some
practice cases with a very professional SPs
 This course is amazing because of the following advantages which is hard to find
anywhere else
1. No one teaches how to do the exact physical exam literally like this
course.
2. The mock test given there makes you feel comfortable in the real exam
day as most of cases are harder with well trained professional SPs who
give you feedback after your encounter makes you improve to the level
you aim to
3. This is the only course let you come and practice with your friends having
their exam at same or close day of yours every day in the exact same real
test encounter rooms (bed, instruments, etc.)
4. One of the best thing is the continuous evaluation of your encounter
performance and your patients notes until your hear you good to go from
your professor there.
4. Exam day:
 My exam was in Houston, cases were not hard in general, I was anxious in first
encounter then it went very smooth, did some mistakes but this normal I guess.
