  I recently took the Gold course at NY location (Jan 13-15). I must say it was worth the $$. I don't know about other review courses but at Gold we had only 12-15 students and they don't take a large class so this way its much better compared to other courses. The hours were draining but when you finish the course you will feel well prepared . I am taking my exam in a week and thanks to Dr. Thomas for drilling the PE, patient notes, and Hx gathering. This course trains you to score in high performance range. Also you get feedback on all your notes and its very helpful. Just make sure you have the stamina to pay attention in class. Dr. Thomas didn't waste a single minute, and some days we barely had any breaks. I would highly recommend this course. Will let you know how my CS exam experience went later next week.

  I passed with high performance in all three aspects of the Step 2 CS exam (a big thanks to Dr. Thomas and the rest of the staff.) In retrospect, I personally think I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't attended Gold USMLE Review in Houston. Dr. Thomas and the rest of the staff were very accommodating to each and everyone. They teach very important things and techniques, which are not found in a lot of Step 2 CS review/reference materials. Furthermore, they make sure that the students develop the proper attitude and mindset in approaching the Step 2 CS exam. The review center provides an excellent mock exam (which I found a total confidence and stamina booster). Without a doubt, I highly recommend those prepping for the Step 2 CS exam to attend it!
