* Chicago passed

  Passed with higher performance just got my results
my exam experience
I am doing rotations at JPH in downtown Chicago, it was freezing the day I did the exam had to take the bus and a train to get to the center, there were so many students there couldn't tell who was img or amg or fmg
the sps were all mixes and races two African sps one I could not understand because of a strong Caribbean accent. my cases were not crazy or out of the normal most of the case scenarios were in csevideo. I did the pe like in fa and did not run out of time but forgot to do things like counsel, ask duration in one case on pain forgot to put heart finding in pn of another case. most cases did not find many physical findings so i just put repeat findings for the other diagnosis. the exam overall was not hard but still I was nervous. study fa and watch csevideo as much as you can to get the feel for the exam and the sp attitude. gl to all

Is the test center inside a big bank? or another building?

  thanks abram16 I am confident for good results, people say don't be confident till you see the result, but my mistakes are few and I feel my time with sp was good for the cases and pn was finished in time.

  My dear colleagues,
I found this wonderful collection of CS cases. They are very realistic and simulating all the CS circumstances. Moreover, some of them have PN typing.

  I would be very weary of that program, the guy doesn't speak clear english and that will get you a fail in sep and since I just took the cs and passed , I can tell you for sure those videos do not match what I did in my exam, plus how long ago did he take the cs man oh man no wonder so many people fail this simple exam the stuff out there is highly questionable good luck everybody !

I recommended this Website, you can practice the Patient Note, save and print it. Moreover, it can be emailed.
