If you're worried about CS, we guarantee* that our easy-to-read guide will help you leave with a SMILE of ultimate confidence, as opposed to one of relief that the 8-hour marathon is finally over and/or one masking your inner feelings of what-the-hell-just-happened.As a medical student and a future physician, you'd rather be safe than sorry.
