Listening How best to prepare for step 3!!!

Hey everybody,

So residency match 2012 has not turned out good for me. Planning to start prepping for step 3.

Got low step 1 score so really looking ahead to try and improve my application with a good step 3 score. But I am also gonna be doing some observerships etc so cant actually spend a lot of time everyday studying.

Would appreciate it very much if anyone could tell me what the must have books for step3 are!! And any suggestion regarding the best way to prep are also welcome!!
