  TVF is the most important part along with auscultation so if time is running out you must do this at least

  There are several criminal tutors online that are scamming people on various forums, they take money from them and never come online for services and they never show up to train people if they are giving private training
never give your money to a usmle tutor they are directly competing with you for residency spots and they want you to fail so they can have a better chance to get in ,
this happened to me and I found out that the person tutoring me failed USMLE 3 times.
please choose only established companies and established people that helped your friends pass.
You cannot trust the pathetic people that starts teaching off someone else's intellectual property and materials they have no basis to teach or credentials and no accreditation
Be very careful when you prepare for the USMLE avoid all tutors if you can
