Dear Anna Lank
I took exam in August 2010, 2 weeks after completing C3NY workshop and I pass it!
I think that C3NY was really helpful for me and I have recommended it to all my friends.
I was in your Sept 2004 CSA class in Chicago …… I went in there (to the exam) and honestly did everything I remember we went over in class….. At the end of the day I seriously thought I failed that exam soooo bad…. It is Jan 20th today and two days ago I received my CSA score. I passed with flying colors. I just wanted to let you know that you were ABSOLUTELY right and if there are any students or doubters out there let me be the proof —–> “just do as he tells you and you will be fine”.
Forever grateful to your course
Dear Dr. Swartz & Anna,
I just wanted to let you know that I passed my cs exam that I took in Philadelphia on Jan 27th.
I think that your workshop is wonderful and it really builds confidence which is what we all desperately need in order to pass this exam.
Thank you both for your help. You are doing a great job!
Dear Dr. Swartz,
I am emailing you today to once again thank you for preparing me for Step 2 CS.
I just found out this morning I passed the exam and have attached the results. The ICE grade was a bit borderline, but I think it was because I could have had better judgment with the focused physical exam skills. My CIS was extremely strong!
As far as Match 2016, I have gone to 21 internal medicine interviews which is a bit overboard but I just wanted to be sure about my decision for the match.
Thanks again for all your help!
Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms. Lank,
I am very happy to tell you that I passed the Step 2 CS in 18 May, 2006. The C3NY Step 2-CS preparation course was wonderful and made me understand what this exam was all about. During the exam, I kept remembering what Dr. Swartz taught us and kept it in mind!having a good communication flow with SPs. Without your teaching, I cannot imagine I could have passed the exam.
Passing the exam was a big relief to me. I thank both of you very much and please convey my thanks to other SPs and faculty, especially the SP “Charles” and my SP Ms. Drda.
Dear Dr. Swartz, Ms. Ginny, and Ms. Lank,
I am glad to inform you that I took Step 2 CS in Philly on September 6, and I PASSED!!
I attended the C3NY workshops in August 2005. It was fun learning from all of you, and I must say it really helped me as whenever I knocked on the door, I expected Mary Smith to be there! All the encounters went well. Thanks to Dr. Swartz, Anna, Ginny, and my workshop colleagues, Kalpesh, Muktak, Anant, Monica, Pratibha, Amna, Shivani and a long list…..who practiced with me as a group. I cannot forget Anna saying “BREATHE…….” which I did after I finished every encounter.
I really enjoyed learning as well the lesiure time in New York. Believe me before coming to New York I didn’t touch any book, and after the workshop was over me and Kalpesh, whom I met for the first time only at the workshop, practiced for about 15 days before appearing for Step 2 CS.
Thank you all once again!
Wish all my colleagues sucess in Residency Match Program,
Wish C3NY great success and a brilliant future.
Hi Dr. Swartz,
I learned today that I passed! THANK YOU!
When I came to C3NY, I was prejudiced with many things for the Step 2CS exam, especially from First Aid. But you changed my feelings about the exam completely, and by the last day of the workshop, I was confident to take my exam.
Truthfully, I want to tell you something. After I returned to Chicago, I did not touch First Aid. I only practiced cases with my husband.
I am so happy your class entirely changed my outlook toward approaching American patients and the Step 2CS exam..
Regards and many thanks!
Hello Mz Lank,
My name is Indumathy. I attended your C3NY course in March 2010 and I am thankful to you. I just received my results. I have passed.
Thank you so much for helping me!
Dear Dr. Swartz and Ms Lank,
I am Hussein Warda M.D., a recent graduate from Alexandria, Egypt. I attended your superb course in May of 2009. I am sure you see hundreds of doctors per year!!!! I hope you remember me.
To tell you the truth during the course, Dr. Swartz’s simple, intriguing and systematic way of teaching made the exam look too easy. I was astonished to see how simple and effective Dr. Swartz’s technique was in introducing one’s self, approaching the patient, obtaining a history and examination.
You are truly a very good mentor who is capable of conveying confidence, information and skills to all your students.
I had a lot of fun during the course. I benefited greatly although to be honest, during the course I had doubts about passing the exam. You even anticipated these doubts during our first day
I would like to inform you that I have passed my step 2 CS exam on my first attempt, and I am writing you an email as we all promised we would do
Thank you and Anna for the great effort you spent with us.
I attached a picture we took before I left.
Please keep in touch.
Dear Anna Lank,
I took my CS exam and passed it at the first attempt.
I took my exam in Chicago. It was more difficult than my expectation.
I benefited from your course in many ways. You have a good foundation of knowledge of how the exam looks like. I think practice would make a big time difference. I want to say that a student who eager to pass this exam, wants to hear his/her own weakness and solution for that, even the reality is harsh. Thus, your student evaluation is so important.
I want to thank you for your help and valuable contribution to my study and the result I got.
