I passed CS. I cried even the result is pass. Too many stress for me to take
that exam.

I took my exam on Philli. Didn't take any class for it. Just use FA and UW.
Used one month part time to prepare , seriously prepared it for less than 3
weeks.

First 3 weeks: I went over UW once and FA twice with online or onsite study
partners. I always practiced 6-8 cases per day with two on-site "patients"
on the weekend. I coped FA PN word by word once.
last week: I went over FA and UW cases once more with onsite "patients" with
writing PN right after, all timed. I took three days off to practise right
before exam. I practised like real exam, no break between cases even for
restroom.

To take the exam:
I made a lots of stupid mistakes. I can count all most 3-5 mistakes for each
cases when I recalled. So I guess you can make mistakes, but focus on the
whole story. Try to close the case even you have to hurry up. Be nice and
always smile was my secrete. Be clear( for example: On a scale of 1 to 10,
how bad is your pain? you need to explain what is scale 1, what is 10).
Patients were very friendly and nice. I actually enjoy to talk to most of
them. I can feel this patient was happy with me and that patient was a
little bit unsatisfied after I completed case.

To handle the exam:
I actually didn't sleep 2 days before the exam. That almost drived me to
nuts that morning. I didn't drink any coffee because I was afraid I will go
to restroom a lot. I drinked half can red bull on the morning plus a little
7 hours energy drink during lunch break. These helped me went through the
whole day.
I had a pretty bad cough and sore throat on the exam day. I tried to
apologize and stay a little far from patients. They were all fine with it.
The lunch they provided was all cold, it was actually caused stomach cramp
on me. So I end up only ate the candy. Suggest people don't like eat cold
food bring something.

Why I pass this exam:
I don't really know. If I need to give a reason. I will say because all my
friends who helped me. My SPs come from six different countries. I even
asked housekeeping lady I knew in the school,and she was happy to be my
patient.
The another two american friends helped me on the weekend taught me a lot
how to talk to patient in this country from the point of view of patients.
My labmate Cassy, now a 1 year medical student, she helped me practise two
cases everyday on the lunch break.Also, two friends from here who already
took the exam spend their valuable time tutoring me. Many, many thanks to
them....
