  I failed CS in atlanta with poor marks, I depended on an online tutor, person took my money never came online to help me, finally came on after 1 week of paying and did not help at all, taught me the CS from 2014 which is totally different than what it is now , never take any online tutor they will scam you and take your money after a free session, this happened to me the first time, NEVER TRUST ANY ONLINE TUTOR HERE they are competing with you for residency spots and they will not hesitate to fail you on purpose and teach you wrong outdated things, they will benefit if you fail so they can take your residency spot

  Yeah I also failed in Atlanta, they are not friendly to IMGs and you are right they speak way too fast, speak slang as well. Most IMGs dont know slang

  Thank you so much friends for sharing. So would you recommend to book the test in LA vs Atlanta?

Thanks

  I took mine in Atlanta. I didnít have much physical exam experience at the time (took it early my third year of med school) but I passed just fine. Reading the first aid for step 2 cs is really all you need. Maybe Uworld cases if you really feel uncomfortable with just that book. If you donít type fast, I would practice the mock notes they have online. Reflect on whether you come across as a good communicator, compassionate, etc, these are all important. I donít think you need a tutor although I had clinical experience in the states so I might be overlooking something. Good luck.
