given the number of cases, high quality simplified content and videos.
The actual price is over $150
for 4 weeks but now available for a very low intro price.
Compare this to others that have half the
number of cases, less features, no case discussions or videos, no software to
practice PN but charge more!
Most people that fail the USMLE
step 2 CS do so in data gathering! Why do people fail in data gathering?
because most of the courses available, including OSCE, FA and UW, concentrate
so much on the individual case rather than the approach.
The folks that design USMLE
knowingly mix the features of a few diseases so that your differential is wide
open. It is important to realize that the key to success is not your diagnosis
but your approach! That is why we have taken all the common symptoms that you
see in USMLE CS, and provided with our "symptom based approach" that works no
matter what the individual scenario might be!
Since practice is one of the
most important parts of preparation for this examination, we developed
software to enable you to practice the cases timed including the patient
I feel very confident going into the exam after
reviewing these cases. Being this is my second attempt I found a strong
correlation between my prior cases and the cases offered here. The information
is being handed to you in the most discrete and clear ways possible. Take
advantage of it! Not only are the cases interactive but also the forms for
feedback which ensures a rich database of cases from prior experience.

Keeping this in mind, we have
developed methods to help you practice the patient note in a timed real
examination style patient note using the patient note generator software

check lists used by the SP's in the real USMLE step 2 CS examination.
