Default Poor PGY 1 starting step 3

So I used to be an old timer in this forum. Mainly, for step 1 2012 and step 2 2013.

Progress thread

Exam experience

I am in my first year of residency and have around 2-3 months to do step 3. I generally feel down since starting residency with alot of work and no appreciation, only yelling and condescending talks. This forum provided me with alot of support when I was doing step 1 and step 2, and so I wanted to start my step 3 prep here.

What is everyone doing these days for step 3? Is it just UW or does anyone use other resources as well?

Hello I am preparing for step 3, I just started \. Basically based on other persons experience the most important sources are USMLE world and MTB3. I can imagine you have limited time to study so I think if you focus on that it should be enough. I am not in residency but I am working and I can only study in the afternoons and weekends. Keep going I am sure you will be fine.

Hi. I will take my step 3 in June. I just don't want to start residency this July without be done with this Kinda desperate now because I didn't finished UWorld yet and just did few CCS cases. But I will do it.

My sources:
Kaplan QBanq super outdated for Step 3 ( so, I stopped doing it)
UWorld + MTB 3 and some MTB 2
I did Kaplan Books along with videos (but mainly Internal Medicine)

Keep the faith to sly the last USMLE dragon

I won't be too active in this forum (obvious reasons) but let's once in a while give support each other in our journey
