Default Guys should buy first aid or MTB ck?

Hi guys,
I am little confused in choosing review book.
Actually i want to go for MTB ck ,but it is not available in local stores.and i cant find its pdf file on internet.

First aid 7th edition is available ,but store keeper told me that new edition is going to release soon.

so what should i do now?
i can buy mtb ck online by paying more more bucks
OR
get copy of FA 7th edition ??

i think a few ppl in this forum opted MTB for step 3 instead. thts wht i read anyways. its available online (try torrent download).

i have FA for step 2 ck (btw u can dwnload this n step 2cs n step 3 FA from online as well) n its not as good as MTB3. MTB3 is just awesome. like a review of kaplan notes tht is just what we need. well i havent finished all my UW offline but for the subjects i have finished (UW offline questions) i averaged 65%. so im guessing MTB3 is ok before going deep into questions.

and of course u need the UW notes as well. those have all those questions we find so hard, all jotted down for our last minute information. but i wouldnt read it as last minute cos there's so much to read. mite take a good 3 weeks for me cos i have classes daily for 8 hrs.

thats just my opinion. dun take my word for it. im only sitting for the exam in jan perhaps.

Torrent is not availble for mtb-ck.
and checck this poll - http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-st...poll-20-a.html
most people are recommending mtb ck. ..no idea about mtb3.

May be i will wait little while until i complete 1st read of kaplan..then decide.
