    Exam today in IL

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone! So after 3 weeks of studying and practicing with a friend I finally took my CS today at the center in Chicago, IL. I will post my experience later (my eyes are seriously burning right now) but I wanted to say the exam was honestly not bad! FA is def. enough!!
    I did forget a few simple things for a few encounters. But I think it's impossible for for anyone to cover EVERYTHING! Am I right? I sure hope so and I hope that I pass that exam! Small things I forgot: Sensory part of neuro exam. Carotid auscultation, PMI when it should've been done. I typed my note... did not run out of room (came close though). I ran out of time on 1 encounter... was not able to counsel.
    But other than that I think it went ok!

    If anyone has questions feel free to ask away!

    don't worry, lots of people forgot lots of "can't miss" things. It's pretty much:

    (1) Can they understand you?
    (2) Are you polite?
    (3) Do you show empathy?
    (4) Proper hygeine and respect for the patient?
    (5) DO YOU SPEAK ENGRISH?!

    To do so will not only violate NBME rules and regulations, be unethical, but it will also violate the Terms of Service of ValueMD. Doing so will result in immediate action.
