Default Step 3

I will start my preparation for Step 3 today.
I will study for 8 weeks and I have a doubt about archer or medquest.
Does medquest include ccs preparation? Which one is better ?
Medquest if more expensive, but I like the Conrad Fischer style, but I have concerns whether it will be enough for the CCS.

Thanks!

No, medquest is not a standard material for USMLE step 3. Fisher's style may be good for entertainment but unfortunately, not quite good for learning step 3 concept though. Step 3 is very vague and needs focus on what's most tested and definitely, CCS is crucial and No other source covers CCS as good as Archer and UW. Overall, best material people have been using and finding success on Step 3 are Archer, UW and MTB . Best of luck
What's the Best Step 3 Review Course out there??

As soon as your ECFMG Certificate is issued.

Mine was "issued" right after my CS result was ready, and took less than a week to arrive (I'm in Chicago).

I'd wait till I have it in mail. There's no certificate online, you'll just see a notice that it's being mailed. You'll find the issue date on the certificate itself.
It depends on whether you just want to pass it or the score matters. If the latter, I'd recommend using as many resources as you can since no single review book, Qbank or practice material will cover enough. For MCQs, MTB offers almost nothing; for CCS, it has absolutely nothing!
