Star Some tips

Use MTB for Step 3 (the new edition, NOT the pdf!)...now Im using it for my step 3 and I regret not having used it before!

And if you have time, watch Medstudy!

Good luck everyone!

Sam

@sam88
Im not pretty sure (I cant check now, cause you can use it only for 2 weeks!)...was something like this...
Block 1 86%
Block 2 67%
Block 3 91%
Block 4 94%

@jaimin
I you have time, read MTB 2 & 3. If you dont, check MTB3 IM and Pediatrics.

Good luck!

If you have time, you should read MTB 2 & 3 at the same time. If you dont, read first MTB step 2 and the MTB step 3 IM & Peds.

If you have access to UpToDate (www.uptodate.com), that's the answer...otherwise, go to U.S. Preventive Services Task Forcehttp://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/uspstopics.htm

Kaplan and MTB are not completely uptodate...good luck!
