If you're worried about CS, we guarantee* that our easy-to-read guide will help you leave with a SMILE of ultimate confidence, as opposed to one of relief that the 8-hour marathon is finally over and/or one masking your inner feelings of what-the-hell-just-happened.As a medical student and a future physician, you'd rather be safe than sorry. You'll be safe with us because this guide will over-prepare you for CS, at the very least. Together we'll go over pro tips and advice that you won't find anywhere else, and we'll highlight essential information you'll need for CS and key things that can easily be overlooked.It's like that mean old dean from Patch Adams who said, “We're gonna make DOCTORS out of you.”We're gonna make FUTURE DOCTORS WHO EASILY BEAT CS out of you!
