Smile Bebix Step 3 Experience

Hi everyone!...here I go again (sorry for the delay):

Preparation time: 2 month
Material:
- Kaplan videos Step 3 (REALLY GOOD)
- MTB Step 3
- EZ Pass Step 3 CCS
- UW CCS cases (REALLY GOOD)
Qbank:
- Kaplan Step 3 Qbank = 76%
- UW = 72%

Scores:
- STEP3 Self-Assessment Form 1 = 255
- NBME Form 2 (online) = 600 (240?)

The actual test (questions) was pretty similar to UW. About the CCS part, I finished all the cases in less than 8 minutes (I had #10 22min cases & @2 10min cases)....the secret? practice practice practice and you gonna be fine.

So, good luck to all and after 11 month of hard work I finally can say I'M DONE with all the steps

well, then thats just more inspiring, most of us are doing our best just to try to guarantee the highest possible scores [including to other criteria] so we dont regret it later while applying for residencies... yet you are here and setting great achievements while already employed,, good for you, truly wishing u all the best, doctor

Congrat, so what your actual score in the exam??

about the Kaplan step 3 videos how did you follow with videos did you use the Kaplan notes step 3 or MTB or just seeing videos with writing some notes because most of videos are case based ?

Thank you and wish you the best.

Thank you for your information!!
But, about the CCS cases, do you recommend the EZ pass CCS or you think that UW CCS cases are enough?

on average I study 4-5 h/day...I did both Qbank, but I only read the explanations for the wrong questions.... remember that I took the CK exam the last week of December! so i didn't have to study everything again.

Good luck!

Bebix,

I have heard that in NBME, u don't get score correlation, so how did u correlate ur NBME score with actual score? Can u suggest any online site for correlation?

Also, in UWSA test, do they have CCS components or just MCQS like NBME?


Thank you in advance!
