Default Is UWORLD enough?

Do I have to read MTB 3, or is UWORLD enough to get a good score?

Thanks

Kaplan Q bank is a good alternative even though it has not been updated. MTB3 is excellent. add mapping ccs it will help you. their web is mappingccs.com

First finish U world,memorize it very well, then Do MTB 3 , it is useful, but Kaplan q bank is more confusing as it is not up dated ,and u cannot do it un-interupted as it stop in between the blocks several times.

uworld is good for the mcqs, but not its not as helpful for the ccs. for that part of the exam i suggest archers videos. its also important to NOT waste your time with mtb or kaplan qbank. quite a few high scorers in these forums have said that, but the problem is that sooo many more people blindly attest to mtb being required study material.

Star Not just World

UWorld is a great resource, but we would not use it solely. A number of other materials are out there - Step up to step 3, secrets, kaplan. Be sure to broaden out a bit so that you are able to cover all of the bases.

Hope that helps,

Urgent Question for CCS
Dear all,
I did all 51 cases in UW. I am not sure what are about 41 read out cases they mentioned in UW website. Are these 41 same as the explanations with 51cases or am I missing those?
Please someone answer.

CCS portion in the Step 3 exam is not easy and you should do readout cases before exam, they are very important to review before exam at least twice, most of them are easy to do,initial cases are difficult. take it easy and do it. I am tutoring step 3 ,I can help you finish them really quickly before your exam, I am tutoring step 3 CCS, I am in eastern time zone, my skype Id is sj.usmle.If you need my help contact me.
Best regards ,
Sara
