Hey,
Yes, mine got reported on the 24th. I checked OASIS this morning.
I took it in Philly on April 12th.
I'm hoping to get the score in the mail tomorrow since it's Memorial Day weekend so I don't feel like waiting till Tuesday...:confused:

Sure, I'll be happy to share my sources.
I did First Aid for CS and Kaplan book for CS.
What I did first is went through the DDs and tried to memorize them.
Then I practiced typing notes. To do that I used the kaplan book (it has a number of cases that briefly describe the clinical scenario and than based on that I tried to write a note including DDs and orders).
For typing I used the screen provided on the USMLE CD.
I timed myself every time and tried not to exceed 9 min.
And after I went through all the cases in Kaplan book I practiced the cases in First Aid. I used my husband as a subject. I would interview him and do a physical on him and then type the note. All together the preparation didn't take longer than 2 weeks. And just a couple hours a day. When I practiced with my hubbie we would only do 3-4 cases a day because he complained about that all the time :) (btw he's not in medicine)
And that's it. I wish you good luck with your preparation.
Where are you taking the test?

You're very welcome.
I like to share my experiences because I learned a lot from this forum so I want to give back now that I'm done with my exams.

Yes, I will be applying for a 2007 spot.
I want to do Anesthesiology but will probably apply to some IM programs as a backup. Even though I hate primary care :)
What are you shooting for?

Check the USMLE website. It used to take 6 to 8 weeks but the rules have changed. Now they are releasing scores in batches.
Check this link:
USMLE - United States Medical Licensing Examination (http://www.usmle.org/step2/Step2CS/Step2Indexes/Step2CS_Scoring2.htm)
