I tried the new usmle s o u r c e step 2 cs course. I thought I would give brief review.
There are 3 types of cases.
1. virtual cases which are like practice cases with a case
scenario, all the questions to be asked and case summary. They also have a patient note generator for practice.
2. The Symptom based approach basically gives an opening scenario, and then all the questions to be asked for that case. The questions are very well formatted, for the most part.
3. patient interviews with pn generator, pt note etc. lot of details in this section.
The approach is very simple using mnemonics and it is uniform throught the course.
Having also tried UW, I think the content is eqaully good or slightly better in some areas. The approach is difinitely very simple and easy to follow. The technology is superior.
Overall, I am happy for the course and hope it will help me get through this step 2 CS!
