Hi All!

I am putting here my CS prep notes for all of you guys. I want everyone visiting this topic to kindly take a look at them and let me know about:
  1. The Mistakes!
  2. Sentences requiring rephrasing!
  3. Any addition you would like to have!
  4. Any deletions!
  5. Or any change you'd like!

I haven't used any any source so far for these notes. Just "our" personal knowledge which we have acquired so far...and things we learned along the way by preparing for the exam ourselves and then helping people can say... "TRIAL & ERROR"

The source of these notes are a bunch of friends living or going through Philly who were helping people prepare for their exam thoroughly or refining their prep. A sort of format came out from all those preparations. Since the pass rate was amazing, and almost everyone got matched last year, I thought to put everything in a form of Notes, which was previously being done verbally.

We have our discussions on it but still, being not sure about the stuff...I'm asking everyone to put their 2 cents...

Since you will not be able to copy the text...kindly quote beginning sentence before any suggestion...I will be grateful.


Get it from here if don't have it already installed:

P.S. for admin: Kindly send me a PM if you find anything against your TOS before banning me!

Since they have a title "CS Preparation Notes" obviously they are for people preparing for USMLE Step2 CS. You'll find the thread in 3 different forums because I want people who have already taken the exam to take a look at them and give their suggestions; and point out the mistakes as well!

As far as the password is concerned...may I know what do you need it for, I guess you can read the notes and print them out as well...

Have you tried re-downloading it?
