Clinical Skills Survival Guide: A Book and DVD Guide to Success in the Clinical Skills Exam
The USMLE Step 2: Clinical Skills exam is based on simulated patient encounters. This is the only review book for the exam that emphasizes the exam process rather than specific facts. It includes a DVD showing clinical scenarios and examples of correct and incorrect behaviors to help you hone your clinical skills. In addition to this more realistic and appropriate approach to the exam, the book covers the history of the clinical skills exam and the use of standardized patients. It provides guidance on the essential elements of the exam - history taking; physical examination; and communication skills-and outlines how to prepare for the exam and how to conduct yourself during the actual examination.
