I'd like to get everyone's input on this as well. I saw in the recommended forums that KAPLAN Medical's Master the Boards Step 3 is the best book but is it different than Conrad Fishcher's Master the Boards Step 3? Which out of these two is better? Also, is there a difference between 2nd and 3rd edition of conrad fischer's book?

What about trying First aid for step 3? If you found the format useful for step 1 you can give it a chance.
However, on my point of view, mtb remains the most complete one.
Good luck.
