Smile Step 3 - day 1...

Finally, today I will start my preparation for step 3!

I have Kaplan videos for step 3 & MTB -3. I also paid UW and Kaplan Step 3 Qbank. I would like to take the test in mid-February!

Any other suggestion?

Hi, Im using Kaplan videos for Step 3 (no the same as Step 2 CK videos)
go to kaptest.com
...and yes, the new MTB is the one with the sticker (even if the copyright is 2009).

Gook luck!

Bebix, you must be kidding, righ? One month for preparation???

Look, I am in the same issue, and according to what I have seeing, it is almost impossible to finish two qbanks in one month. will try one of them but in one month. You surelly are trying to avoid the delay that it will be for people that gives step 3 between mid-february and early may, right? Our scores will arrive on june 6th

Hey, yes...my problem is that I cant find any seats available!
Anyway, UW only have like 1300 qs and Kaplan around 900, so I think is double.

I dont think you need more than a month, cause the material is almost the same as the one used in step 2 CK....
