It seems that you are not satisfied with the thread you started here
Difference between Step 2 CK and Step 3

The difference between Step 2 CK and Step 3 Exam is best explained by our former staff Rasheed here
Frequently Asked Questions About USMLE Step 3?

Yes. They are very similar, I'd say the biggest difference is the CCS found in Step 3 and not in Step 2 CK. But knowledge (therefore studying for them) is essentially the same. What's different is in Step 3 you need more clinical judgment and more knowledge of preventative medicine and also thinking differently when you are in office or ER setting.

As to which one is harder I refer you to this poll
