Default Archer CCS videos

Hi everyone!
I am starting upon my preparation for Step 3 and had a clarification regarding the resources.
To my understanding, most applicants recommend
-U world Q bank and CCS cases subscription
-MTB 3
-Archer CCS case videos.

Which Archer videos are the most valuable according to their costs?
Archer Review - Full Length - 36hrs - $245
Archer Full Length CCS Workshops - 30 hrs session - $88 ( Updated! - Includes 2013 CCS changes )
Archer CCS Strategies - 2hrs45mins $70
The live interactive webinars?

Any experiences and recommendations are appreciated. Thank you!

I used Archer full lenght review, and full lenght CCS prep (recorded sessions).

The review videos were good. The professor speaks fast, speed might be an issue if your listening skills are not fully developed. There is some new information but nothing really critical. I think it's worthy if it's been a while since you took your CK, but I would not consider it a MUST.

The CCS is very worthy, and I do consider it a MUST. The most important information is in the CCS Strategies which is a kind of step-by-step approach to the CCS. The workshops are mostly demonstrations with examples. The professors call a student (someone from the live webinar), creates a case, and guides the student on how to approach a particular case using the software. You can replace this cases and just practice the Uworld cases, but you know, it's only 18 dollars of difference, so... Why not. Now I really don't see too much advantage in taking the online webinar.

What I did to prepare for CCS: I began with Archer CCS and then attacked Uworld, and I think it was enough. I mean, at the end of it I felt prepared.
