标 题: tips for CS exam
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Tue Feb 12 18:37:04 2008)

I passed my CS on first attemp and without any real time practice before the
exam.

I have several tips hope that may help somebody here.

1. Be nice! Smile smile smile. I had a difficult patient as the first pt but
I don't know what problem she had at that time. I still don't know since I
was extremely nervous at the first patient encounter and can't recall
anything she said.(she was angry and yelling all the time). But I was very
very nice to her and to comfort her, I guess she gave me a good score.

2. Speak slowly and clearly.

3. Patients will fake the symptome and make some noise if they suppose to
have some disease related to the noise. They are actors and actress so they
will try very hard to let you know what's wrong with them.

4. whenever a patient says something about a long trip to Australia, always
always pay attention to DVT and PE and something related to these two
disease.
Austria=DVT(PE)

I will post more if I can recall anything.

I took it 2 month before CK. most of the time I was preparing for CK and CS
was more like on and off most of the time for about 2 month.

I believe Fluent in English is very important and maybe I was lucky to pass
cause I did have several wrong diagnosis. 3 of my patient was extremely nice
to me and one even remind me something when i forgot to ask.

another tip:

For TB, if you suspect TB, ask the patient if they did any volunteer thing
in a shelter.


we all have accent, light or heavy. it is a setback eventhough i beleive
they said somewhere that accent won't affect your score. I don't beleive it.

Time management is very important. I screwed up my first case because of
that. You can practice if your have a partner and it will help you a lot. I
asked my husband to be a patient but he refused to do so. I don't have a
partner and end up without any practice before the exam.



I really believed that I did not pass the exam after it and every single
time when I thought about it, it hurts. Finally, After many many months of
waiting, I got the score from the mail and I passed.

I took the exam a year ago.
