    first aid whatever latest edition. that is all you need, read the intro and follow the suggestions then practice with a friend. give them the check off lists and have them mark down all you do and what you miss.

    also keep checking the usmle site and this one. there is a rumor that the format is changing in july?

    Here's the real info:
    Review of Standards for Step 2 Clinical Skills The USMLE Step 2 Committee is responsible for setting and monitoring pass/fail standards for the Clinical Knowledge (CK) and the Clinical Skills (CS) examinations.Initial standards for the CS examination were set by the Committee in November 2004.Because this process was completed with less than a full year’s cohort of examinees, the Committee decided to closely monitor cumulative data on CS during the following year and to undertake a review of the CS standards in the Spring of 2006. This review process is underway and will be completed in the last half of June 2006.
    One of the possible outcomes of the review is that there could be a modification to the performance levels required to pass one or more of the CS subcomponents (Integrated Clinical Encounter, Communication and Interpersonal Skills, Spoken English Proficiency). If there is a decision to make such modifications, it is likely that the new requirements will be applied beginning with those examinees taking Step 2 CS in the testing period that starts July 16, 2006. (Click here for 2006 Step 2 Clinical Skills Schedule for Reporting Results.)
    Final decisions resulting from this process will be posted to the USMLE website during the last week in June.
