  Did you have a lot of basic sciences? If so, what areas should we focus on.

I am also scared of CCS. I do forgot some things/steps as I practice the cases.

Let's say a patient has appendicitis. I order general surgery consult, and the program indicates "patient will be scheduled for surgery; continue medical treatment". And then the case ends abruptly.

Assuming on the 2-minute screen, I prep my patient for surgery (I order PT, PTT, TYPE AND CROSS MATCH, ANTIBIOTICS, INTRAVENOUS FLUID, etc), but I forget to type: APPENDECTOMY, will I lose lots of marks?

  @Sick 99 I dint touch MTB I did only UW for the MCQs
@tklerts the basic sciences are really basic You can answer off the bat the main thing for day 1 is to review your biostat and drug ads well.
Generally there are a lot of random questions you cant really read in a book so try and do random searches.
hope this helps

  @drmaafo if i were you i will try not to forget the final procedure i think its more important than the pre tests but thats my opinion considering its computer graded.
My strategy was to try and use my MCQs to compensate cos I knew my ccs will probably be shaky, i always get anxious of software things no matter how much I prep.
