Dr. Naik's course is everything you'll need for any USMLE step! His style of teaching incorporates both basic and clinical medicine so it's easy to understand concepts and apply it in any way. I wouldn't call myself a great test taker but Dr. Naik's course gave me the confidence to go take the step 2CK course and pass!!

This 5-week online course always kept me engaged and was supplemented very well by the textbook. The course helped me improve on my step 2 score immensely and I will return to this course for step 3. I only wish I had known about this course for step 1. Dr. Naik really seemed to care for the students and helped me excel. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is studying for his or her steps.
When I was preparing for the CCSE exam for step 2 CK, I didn't have much time and was looking for something that would help me review all of my 3rd year material as fast as possible. I joined the 5 week course with Survivors Course and I was surprised how much this course helped me. Dr. Naik is very knowledgeable about all three of the step exams and he helps you understand each concept rather than memorize. He targets students weaknesses and works at helping each individual reach their full potential.

I highly recommend tutoring from Survivors Course with Dr. Naik. I enrolled in his course for Step 2CK preparation and immediately noticed improved results. His teaching method helps you remember difficult concepts and he genuinely cares about his students. I saw a 20-point improvement from my Step 1 score.

I took the 5-week online course while doing a surgery sub-I, and I must say it was exactly what I needed to study after an exhausting day. Dr. Naik teaches what is essential for you, helping you to understand the material and implemented a system that allows you to retain the information. As I got my score, I could definitively say he had a part in what I got and I would recommend this course to anyone who is preparing for their Step exam.

I attended Survivors Course after being referred by Dr. Rowley of Ximedus. I was skeptical when i first spoke to Dr Naik as he treated the whole process as it was something much simpler than I always thought. Doing classes with about 10 people attending was an important differential so I decided to invest my money and it paid off!!!! Dr. Naik's technique of continuously asking high yield information to the students helps that knowledge stick so that you can't forget anymore. He explains things in a simple manner and making it to where you don't have to memorize anymore! Dr. Naik is also amazingly supportive and does everything in his range to help you do a good job on your 'D' day. I highly recommend this course.

I signed up for the 5 week prep course in preparation for my Step 2 CK. Dr. Naik’s teaching method is unparalleled to any other USMLE prep course. He offers you something that no other prep course does: understanding medicine. Having been through other prep courses, I was skeptical to join. Within the first lecture, I knew I made the right choice. During Dr. Naik’s class, he keeps engaged and points out everything you need to know to do well. I was able to significantly improve from my Step 1 score. I would highly recommend this course to anyone preparing for any USMLE exam.

All students should experience Dr. Naik's "Survivor's Course!" Dr. Naik teaches in a manner that retrains your mind to approach clinical vignettes with a stronger, clearer understanding of the foundations of medicine. This method simplifies concepts that initially seem to be "complicated" and builds confidence in our abilities to excel. I have seen a big jump in my performance on UW and NBMES in preparation for my STEP 2 CK exam and a 22 point increase on my actual CK exam. Dr. Naik absolutely takes care of his students at an individual level catering to the student's academic weaknesses and turning them into strengths. He keeps in touch with students even after the course is complete making sure they are more than prepared before taking their exams. Classes fly by making the course very entertaining and humorous- a technique that helps to ease stress and remember concepts better. Thank you Dr. Naik for inspiring us all and I hope your class continues to grow!

I have had a hard time in doing exams especially comprehensive exams and it took 3 failing attempts for me to seek help, and a dear friend vouchered for Survivors Course. I enjoyed his enthusiasm for what he does, a lot of energy and keeping everyone involved. After the 5 weeks for step but he felt it had made a tremendous difference to my conceptual understanding of medicine but was not ready to take the exams. At the end of the course, Dr. Vijay Naik asked me to read that book from page to page, and I will be ready for comprehensive exam which I ended up scoring 237, I cycled through that survivors course book a few more times before my step 2CK exam I saw even a greater improvement in score.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Niak for any course dealing with preparation for the USMLE exams. Dr. Niak’s preparation techniques are second to none; do not waste your money like I did on the Kaplan course; completely worthless. Dr. Niak gets into the real “meat and potatoes” of the exams and his courses are worth every penny. Dr. Niak lives for his courses and his students; he is thoroughly prepared and frankly, brilliant. I would highly recommend any of Dr. Niak’s courses to anyone seeking a time tested method to prepare for and master the STEP exams. I took STEP 2 CK with Dr. Niak and will definitely take STEP 2 CS and STEP 3. I only wish I knew about his course when I studied for STEP 1. In closing, you must take this course, you must do exactly what he says to do, and you must get ready to embrace a new teaching methodology that gets real results. I easily passed STEP 2 and my score increased dramatically over my prior attempt.
Can you imagine feeling calm and confident after taking your USMLE step 2CK? I would have never thought that was possible until I actually experienced it. The Survivors Course had prepared me so well for my exam that no anxiety or stress came in my way. I came out of the exam knowing exactly which questions I got right. Dr. Naik taught me how to dissect each question and train my mind how to confidently decipher the right answer. I am now able to think clearly and confidently.

After several attempts at my schools comprehensive exam, I came to Dr Naik for help. The structure of his course, his willingness and enthusiasm to teach and on top of that his passion for each of his students blew my mind. Not only did he help me pass my comprehensive exam, i took my step 2CK soon after and was blessed with an amazing score. His course prepared me and gave me the confidence i needed to excel, all which I wasn’t able to grasp throughout medical school. I learned how to analyze questions and how to properly and logically think through answers. I highly recommend his course to anyone and everyone!
This course is amazing! Not only do you get a full comprehensive review of medicine but the level of individual attention you get from Dr. Naik and his associates is absolutely commendable. Dr. Naik truly cares for his students and looks out for their best interest. I took this course to help me prepare for Step 3 and it really helped me review a lot of concepts I had forgotten. I wish I had taken this course for my Step 2 exam. Highly recommend!
