Default Can MTB3 be used for ck?

Hey guys this can be a stupid question; but can we just use MTB3 + UW to study for ck?

I am thinking MTB3 since it has more info and more extensive then MTB2, so why do MTB2, if I can do MTB3?

any experiences appreciated it

I don't want to do both MTB2and MTB3 since I think it is more effective to just concentrate on 1 review book, just from my experience in step 1.

My plan: do MTB3 as much as I can + UW

its a good question and i dont know why more ppl dont consider it, because after all step 3 material is high yield for step 2ck. i did the uworld step 3 qbank and it helped me a lot on my step 2ck. as for mtb, i read both mtb 2 and 3 for my step 2ck, but as i often mention, on exam day neither proved to be beneficial.

since you already did CK, then you can answer this question: if you would do it all over again, what would you do differently this time?

oh my.... a lot. i would have cut out half my study material and spent more time outdoors. the sources i would definitely have cut out are kaplan qbank, usmle rx, mtb 2 and 3, the pretest books, and usmle consult (worst qbank i've ever seen, didnt even bother to finish it).

you know, i dont think many people could answer that. a lot of people seem perfectly fine with everything that they have studied.

the questions are harder, so dont let lower scores discourage you. but the explanations are thorough and they will help reinforce step 2ck material.

one more thing.... i did the step 3 qbank in-between my first and second attempt at uworld step 2ck, but a friend is doing it in parallel with uworld step 2ck. i think that might be better.
