Hi Everyone,

I am hoping if anyone could guide me about the review courses for step 2cs, with emphasis on the ICE component of the exam. I have heard about Kaplan and Nycprep but not sure which is better and there is a substantial price difference between them.

Thank You

I am IMG and have tried Kaplan Step 2 CS 5day online lectures with 1 day practice exam. I had a good experience as the feedback was really detailed and they also had a higher threshold for passing. I have not tried Nycprep and so, I won't comment on it. Ultimately, I feel that the most important thing is to find a study partner and to practice relentlessly. I only used FA and Kaplan's 5 day course material and practised it multiple times. It was adequate to do well for the CS exam:) All the best!
