I passed this test from the first attempt, but felt that I could fail it (first
time in my life I had such feeling after test). It was difficult for me for a
number of reasons: 1. I am not fluent in English (speak slowly), 2. There is no
real diagnosis on this test and symptoms are not related to one diagnosis.They
want you to ask all possible questions related to the chief complaint; you do
not need to make a right diagnosis. I realized it after 6th case and adjusted my
strategy accordingly. For those with clinical experience it is very important
forget about making a right diagnosis and just ask questions from the list
created for a specific complaint and carefully memorized before exam. the same
is true for diff diagnosis. 3. communication interpersonal skills required for
doctors are different in Belarus and USA. My performance was borderline in all 3
categories, but I PASSED. I recommend you TO take kaplan cs course. They do a
great job. I think I PASSED ONLY BECAUSE I HAD TAKEN IT. FIND A STUDY PARTNER.I
PRACTICED WITH MINE BY SKYPE FOR 2 MONTH 2HRS EVERY OTHER DAY. GOOD LUCK
