USMLE Books Covering minor topics in MTBs

IM from MTB 2
Peds, Ob/Gyn, Surgery from MTB 3

We understand that, but what about the rest of the subjects?!

Psych?
Biostat?
Minors (derma, opthalmo, etc)?

Some people say these should be done from MTB 2, some say from MTB 3.
Which one do you recommend?

buddy if they say, mtb 3 for rest of subjects, that doesn't mean we should leave them in mtb 2.......for example----there is more obstetrics and less gynec and in mtb 3 there is more gynec and less obs (if we compare)......

for medicine mtb 2 is sufficient ...but for others i would suggest you to read both mtb2 and 3 (if time isnt much problem)....
and regarding ophthal ---i think uworld is enough (if u want mtb2 is good)
ent---> again uworld in my opinion....,if u want to substitute --use kaplan paeds section(gr8 info)
biostat and psych---->uworld is enough----for psych use mtb3(almost same info given in mtb2).....for stats ->step 1 notes
radio--->mtb3/2 (both are same in info)


and these are just my opinions buddy......it's better to take an opinion from the ones who already passed the exam

hope it helps...goodluck

i agree with venky..its pretty confusing..so i am reading both mtb 2 and 3 ..even for medicine..and if i feel sumthing must be missing , instead of reading kaplan i am listening to videos and annotating them into mtb's..the rest i guess wl be covered by uworld..
