  i just got the result and it said i didnt make it in CSI part which to me was a bit shocking since I did everything possible as mentioned in uw and i had a very good feeling after the exam.

If i were to give all over again i would not know where to do better than what i did bu i am sure with yur guys collective opinions i would be ble to formulate a plan and take this again. its a very humilating and depressive feeling and i hope no one has to go through this ever .

i knocked on the door introduced myself was emphatic draped the patient and asked about his concerns. i was able to complete all the cases on time and write good notes. i did not discuss the differential with the patient though and just told them that i would have to run a few test and would let them know whats going on with them.

pl answer my concerns as it is very imp i get out of this depression and let me know what different i can prepare this time.

thanks

  well yuvraj , i know how it feels , cause even i failed for the first time and i passed the second time ,i failed in CSI and clinical encounter infact a star was given for my low performance in data gathering and patient notes , try to get a study partner and i strongly advice on it and there is a page in the usmle.org about CSI , which is helpful to know how they grade CSI roughly and for each case after practising try to see into that and ask ursself did i do all these things.. well , even i thought the same thing how to go abt with this but trust me u can pass it second time .

I am sorry to hear about your bad news.
From your post, it seems that you have done well in CS. You may go over the website bowowmiow mentioned above to look for anything you may have missed.
Would you like to practise with me for your 2nd attempt? I will take it in January.
