I just checked OASIS and saw my score report it says I PASSED!!!! I still have yet to get an email saying that my score report is ready, but I checked anyways.

I took the CS back in mid Jan 2010. I took it in Atlanta. I studied First Aid only for about 3 weeks. I practiced asking questions with my gf on the phone for about a week. I practiced doing the phsyical exam on a pillow LOL. Most of the cases I had were from First Aid, but not all of them. On 2 cases I was not 100% sure what the patient even had. One of the encounters was a complete disaster. I asked all the questions regarding the cheif complaint and all and then washed my hands and started my phsyical exam. 1/2 through my physical exam I noticed I did not ask him anything about his PMH, SS, social, meds, allerigies. I was not sure what to do, but I stopped my physical told him I had some more questions. Sat back down asked him the questions and then re-washed my hands and went back on with the physical exam. This patient case was the easiest to diagnose yet I was a nervous wreck for some reason. Oh well, I am glad I still passed.

Good luck to all of you and I wanted to thank the people on this forum for the help.

I only used First Aid to study. I think it was the third edition...

I looked at my score report and only one category had a 2 stars in the boarderline area, all the rest were above. You can def pass this exam if you can speak proper english and if you know your differentials and know what questions to ask by going through your First Aid.
