标 题: CS-2-month preparation
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Wed Jun 18 16:45:16 2008)

I took at 4/8, passed and found out today.

My baby was 6 month-old when I took my exam, and I was nursing her and
working the same time, so almost no time for study CS.

My preparation is very different from a lot of other people, so just wrote
it out here.

From March, I used one month to read FA and recited all the patient notes
until I can finish in 10 min (I took step 2 CK at August 2007).

At the end of March, I took 1-week CS Kaplan class in NJ, and it went really
well, esp we had practice tests from 12 standard patients-SP were very
tough, tougher than the real exam. I realized I could have practiced history
-taking with a partner before I took the class, which I didn't do at all
because of no time before the class.

And the following 2 weeks, I took vocation time from work, combined a lot of
good points of Kaplan class about writing PN into FA PN, that made PN
writing faster, and in the meantime I timed my physical exam in combined
pattern-like for so and so, do heart and small lung exam-it took no more
than 3 min, do small-heart-lung-and abdomen, no more than 5 min, and
complete neuro exam 8 min, small neuro, no more than 5 min. (I had to
comment what I learn from kaplan class is really efficient, because in the
physical exam, you need to perform and talk the same time and they have very
good formula for that.)

So you need to form how much physical exam mentally according to the different case, so when you are in the exam room, you know exactly what you are doing.
And I practiced with my husband 2 times, and practiced with my kaplan classmate
2 times. And I closed and consulted each case at plenty of time, and I finished each case at least 1 min earlier, of course in the sarcrifice of limited physical exam (as long as it is sufficient).

And then our whole family drove to phil, stayed in the hotel right next to
the center and took the exam next morning. I got a quote in the exam room
since I bought in my breast pump, you need to apply for the permission
before walking in the room. But it was no big deal.

Man-phil has very good food, don't miss that out.

Good luck for everyone who passed or is going to pass.
