Default STEP 3- number of attempts???

Hi guys,

I am an IMG, I just gave my step 3 and couldn't make it in the first attempt. Donno how? but I had scored 215 in Uworld simulated. Anyways, I have also heard that if you are going residency while giving your step 3, you have higher chance to pass..

Let us start this thread for all of step 3 takers about number of attempts and doing residency of not.
Also u can include the course/books u read that helped u pass

I think it would be a great help to all of us and those planning to give step 3 in future.

We can go like

step 3-fail/fail/pass(kaplan classes)/ no residency
step 3-pass(uworld,archer)/ residency-IM
step 3- fail(uworld-215,no archer)..preparing for 2nd attempt, doing kaplan classes / no residency
