Default Step 3 High Score advice

I am trying to get a good score on step 3.

I started reading Kaplan Step 3 Lecture Notes and plan to read them 2-3 times. I will also do Uworld. Is this a good plan? Are the Kaplan Notes worth it, as with Step 1 and 2?

Kaplan Step 3 Lecture Notes are quite limited, and reading them over 2-3 times is overkill. uworld step 3 qbank is really great, and for additional questions you can try uworld's family medicine qbank and a book called Family Practice Examination and Board Review.

and dont forget to prepare for CCS... that can really bring down you're score if you're not familiar with it.
