USMLE Step 2 CK Written Testimonials
“Dr. Thomas’ high yield review for the USMLE step 2 CK was very elaborate and on point, he covered all of the topics for my exam and pushed me to be productive each day. We did questions together each day and he helped me identify my weak areas and made all of my weak areas my strengths. I strongly recommend this review and it was the most affordable crash course for the STEP 2 CK exam. His effort and strong will are unmatched and I have never seen such a dedicated medical professor like him. “

“Scored 252 thank you guys so much…Gold USMLE Review was an amazing STEP2CK class. I think what helped the most was being able to learn concepts and understand at a deeper level, to be able to think during exam times. Dr Thomas are incredible in teaching/explaining and making sure everyone understands concepts. The test taking strategies also helped a lot. These skills will definitely help during future exams. I highly recommend this class as it provides the additional help, guidance, and support for taking exams.”

“Scored 258 on USMLE step2CK and I would like to thank Dr Thomas. The goldusmle USMLE Step 2 CK eview classes were very helpful. I would like to thank them for helping me achieve my goal. His hard work and genuine care for the students is inspiring. His unique approach to tackling questions was excellent for my step 2CK exam as I was able to finish all of my blocks 10 mins ahead of time. Without his help I probably would not have been able to score high. My score was higher than my nbme practice exam. I highly recommend the goldusmle step 1 program and I will be definitely be coming back for step2ck. May God bless you in every way. Thank you for your help!”
-DR RANDY W. MD,
PASSED CK AND GOT 252!! MUCH THANKS TO DR THOMAS. Goldusmlereview is by far the best USMLE review course hands down !!! Dr. Thomas and his staff went well and beyond and far exceeded my expectations when preparing for my USMLE exams. Dr. Thomas was very personable and treated me for the individual who I am. His approach is unique as he is a professor/teacher, mentor, and coach all in one !!! With this course you have the luxury of having someone (Dr. Thomas) right by your side at all times. The course helped gauged by strengths and weaknesses and helped me focus on areas of improvement. I had the luxury of attending both live and online sessions. The live course was akin to a boot camp full of energy and enthusiasm displayed by Dr. Thomas. The zoom online sessions were incredible as well with an interactive display and helping all the students being engaged at all times with lecture slides, practice questions, and discussions. In addition, the class sizes are limited so that attention can be given to all the students. Highly recommend !!!!!

I took my Gold USMLE STEP2CK coaching in June 1st week in Houston. My exam was scheduled less than 2 weeks after the GOLD class (for June 18) . Before coming here I had a lot of apprehensions about CK preparation as I came without completing FA. At the end of the first day of class, my mind felt confident enough to work and take the real exam after 2 weeks. All hesitation was kicked out. GOLD is the reason I have passed with flying colours.
The entire team at GOLD was instrumental in this success. The time and energy they put in made sure that they hammered home all the relevant points from IM, PEDS, SURGERY, PSYCH, OBGYN WAS VERY HELPFUL AND PRODUCTIVE. THE ALGORITHMS THEY PROVIDE HELPED ME IMMENSELY.. I could finish all the blocks much before time in the real exam. The Gold USMLE step2ck classes are intensive and well structured so that every point is covered and revised. Dr Thomas is wonderful and his feedback was unmatched. The mock exam gives you the adrenaline rush so the real exam feels like a cakewalk. I strongly recommend taking this course (and mock exam) before jumping into your real exam. I express my sincerest thanks to the entire team and Dr. Thomas.

Scored 255 on my USMLE STEP 2 CK, thank you so much!!! I was struggling with my step2ckpreparation before taking Gold USMLE. But the course not only helped me gain all the confidence I needed but also helped me grow in a professional manner. Thanks to Dr. Thomas and his devotion to his students I learned more in his classes than I did in a month studying on my own. I passed my USMLE STEP2CK without a hiccup and what once seemed to be the toughest exam for me became the easiest. I would highly recommend it to anyone taking their exam to take the course as it helps a lot to boost your confidence and you learn things you can never learn out of a book. The intensive training integrates all the material together to help with memory retention and there is individualized feedback and Dr. Thomas analyzes your performance individually as well. He even grades your quizzes each day till you take your exam. I can guarantee no other course or program can offer the individual attention that Gold USMLE does.

“Scored 258 and I am very happy with my score..At first, I was apprehensive of signing up for a STEP2CK review course, I thought I could handle it on my own. I was asking myself if that was really necessary. The test is expensive enough as it is. I choose that course because the reviews were positive and the course was affordable. It was a great idea signing up for that course! I took that course for 8 weeks and we covered all the material nicely.. . Not sure if I recommend taking that course on such a short notice. The course itself was extremely well organized! Dr. Thomas knows what these testers are actually looking for and gives outstanding advice on how to be successful. Dr. Thomas comes across as quite meticulous at first but he means well and demands discipline. He wants people to pass. Of course, I cannot speak for the other course takers, but I had the impression everyone enjoyed the course. I absolutely recommend taking this course! I personally never regretted it and I found the USMLE STEP2CK exam, which I took 2 days later incredibly easy. I never wrote a review in my life but I think it is worth mentioning for all of you out there that I think my money was well invested. I wish everyone who reads that comment all the best of luck on the test!”
-DR MARK SCHWARTZ. MD
“I received high performance on my USMLE STEP2CK exam with 262. I am honored to have received training through this GoldUSMLE STEP2CK course. The practice exam is very similar to the real deal and I’d say even more intense. You get one on one feedback with Dr Thomas after the practice exam..They discuss exactly what they were looking for and how you could have improved. CK ALGORITHMS AND BEST NEXT STEPS WERE THOROUGHLY DISCUSSED.The course provides plenty of clever ones. Each quiz you do each day is extensively reviewed and graded with very constructive feedback by the instructor himself. Although, the test is getting much more difficult each year, test day felt very smooth because of the plan set out for me by goldUSMLE.”
-Dr Cina A. MD Turkey
“I passed my step 2 CK exam with 254 I would like to thank Dr Thomas for his great help. I scored into high performance & it would not have been possible if I would not have joined Goldusmle CK course. Dr Thomas who was main contributor is very knowledgeable & he is quick in analyzing student’s weaknesses & then concentrate on them. He has gifted ability to assess questions very quickly will only expect the best from you, hence after taking his classes you will be confident in taking step 2 CK. He has professional & wonderful team who are incredible in assessing level of preparation which is near accurate. I experienced it through mock exam & my performance was exact same as my real exam. I was so confident on my exam day because It did not feel any different than mock exam. I would highly recommend this course to every student whether AMG or IMG, because they provide indispensable knowledge & material to not only pass the exam but to get high performance in Step 2 CK exam. Thank you Dr Thomas for helping me & so many students to achieve their dream scores!”

“Staff was very friendly and nice at GoldUSMLE, review was well organized and structured properly. I scored over 240 on my USMLE step 2 CK exam. Excellent, well thought out and well designed. This is a MUST-HAVE review program for anyone aspiring for USMLE. Being a part of this program was most definitely a breath of fresh air. It was not only the best prep program I have ever attended, but was also incredibly helpful in expanding my intellect. What makes this program so unique and special is its personalized and structured approach, which let me explore my weaknesses and strengthen the same. The instructors were very patient and encouraging throughout, making it an incredible learning experience. Looking forward to coming back for my Step 3 classes.“
-Dr Barbera O.
“My biggest problem was understanding the surgical protocol obgyn protocol biostats and psychiatry. GoldUSMLE helped strengthen me in all these components. Dr. Thomas helped me how to tackle questions, time management, and understanding of this whole exam. He guided me through the entire process until the day before my exam. His useful tips got me through my exam day. Her thorough review helped me a lot to recall things during my test. With his help I successfully passed step 2CK.”
-Dr. Lara F.
“Much gratitude to the GoldUSMLE review for the help and guidance I received while preparing for Step 2CK. Their Step 2CK online course is simply amazing and I would not have passed my exam without it. I failed the Step 2CK after using DIT, Boards and Beyond, First Aid and UWorld. Those resources were all pretty much the same thing and had no foundation which is something I desperately needed coming from a Caribbean medical school. A friend took the GoldUSMLE and did great with them so I gave it a try as well and I am so thankful to them for all of their advice, help, and amazing course lectures”
-Dr. Manuel P.
“Due to the travel restrictions I was unable to come to the Step 2CK course in Atlanta but thankfully they were able to switch me to the Step 2CK online program, it was fantastic. I really felt as if I attended the actual course in person. I took an NBME exam that I took before the first day of class and the score was very low even though I took Kaplan before which was required by my school. I really wish to thank the GoldUSMLE instructor, staff, and materials enough… It’s like comparing apples to oranges to the other review materials I used before. The instructor was the real deal because he’s extremely knowledgeable and he has a way of explaining things in a way that allows you to fully understand the Step 2CK material. The course itself is a very structured environment and they include fun games to make a difficult learning process fun and much easier. After my course my NBME exam score shot up 47 points and I couldn’t be happier. Hopefully I can take the Step CK soon because I now have the confidence and ability to do so thanks to the GoldUSMLE.”
-Dr Marco A.
“Thank God for technology. I was scheduled to come to Houston for the Step 2 CK live course but due to the travel restrictions unfortunately I wasn’t able to travel. I knew I had to continue to prepare and knowing myself I had to be in a structured environment which was the reason why I was planning to attend the live class. Thankfully the GoldUSMLE review has set up a live streaming of their class in Houston! It’s an absolute life saver. I just finished my four week course and I am so impressed. It absolutely felt like being in the classroom. I honestly didn’t miss out on anything by not being in Houston. I had to log in every day at a specific time when the class started, I was following all the same materials that the live students did but I the one thing the live student couldn’t do that I did was to attend the course in my pajamas hahaha. This was truly a life saver and I highly recommend it to everyone preparing for the Step 2CK especially those that can’t travel! Thank you and stay safe everyone!”

“In my opinion, GoldUSMLE is the way to go. Other sources do help with content knowledge and have a lot of books and resources but that’s it. You don’t get the focused, INDIVIDUALIZED, review that is necessary for you to succeed.
GoldUSMLE is a great prep program if you’re interested in a focused and more individualized approach to studying for your USMLE Step exams. I am a detail-oriented individual with a lot of knowledge, however, I did not know how to focus that knowledge on exams. I often choose detailed answers when they are looking for commonly tested topics. GoldUSMLE reviews all the details necessary to be successful on the exam, but They make sure to tell you what you need to know, and for me, they were extremely helpful with test taking skills!!! I improved my score from the original assessment to actual test over 25 points. I also finished blocks with 10-15 minutes left because I was confident in the answers. I picked and moved on. Even on the exam! It was crazy how well I improved and how easy the questions were after opening my eyes to how to take the test. I am forever indebted to them for helping me be successful on my step 2ck as I have graduated Med school and well on my way to securing a residency position!!
At the end of the day if you want content knowledge any program will work, but if you want someone to understand and point out your strengths and weaknesses and work with you to improve those strengths and eliminate weakness GoldUSMLE is the way to go!!”
-Dr Peter S.
“The program is well organized, lecture notes are clear and concise, and all the instructors are very knowledgeable about their material. The strength of the program is clearly Dr. Thomas’ personalized approach to each student coupled with a genuine desire to help students reach their maximal potential. He is a very dedicated and caring instructor who was able to create a clear study plan, academic support and help with logistics for test day. I would highly recommend the program to anyone who is interested in either step 1 or step 2 preparation. Ive taken both courses and have done well thanks to them”
-Dr. Emilee D.
“Thank you so much for all your kind help throughout this experience, it has truly been a pleasure working with GoldUSMLE. Dr. Thomas and staff are excellent instructors who were able to give personalized attention, thus enhancing my learning experience. Both Step 2 CK and CS Live review programs were conducted at a very high level of professionalism. I was able to solidify my medical knowledge and definitely feel more confident going into my exams.
I would highly recommend GoldUSMLE to others looking to prepare for their USMLE Exams.”
-Dr Mark G.
“I scored 245 on my USMLE step 2 CK exam and I would like to thank the Goldusmle review program for all of their help. Dr. Thomas was an excellent instructor! Not only did he keep me on track but also gave me the tools and support that I needed to successfully pass Step 2 CK. He has unparalleled work acumen, his strongest attribute is his enthusiasm and commitment to the learning process. I would gladly recommend him to my peers.”
-Dr Henry R.
“ My score went up over 50 points from my NBME and I am glad I decided to take the GoldUSMLE CK course. I found Dr. Thomas’s organized and planned study strategy work best for me. He was very patient with me as English not being my language but his consistent encouragement made it possible for me to overcome my fear of Step 2 CK.. I passed successfully and am now doing a residency in internal medicine.”
