From the website it seems that UW has 1349 MCQS (pretty much the same subjects tested in CK) and 52 CCS cases + 41 case management (whatever that means).

Not sure if I answered your question...

Guys, is it a good idea to use UW for Step3 for the CK prep? I need to use another qbank and it looks like Kaplan is not really high-yield. Isn't the overlap between UW3 and CK big enough to get good quality questions??? Been asking this around but haven't gotten any answers yet. Thanks.

I would say 2-3 hours per block if you're fresh from CK

Woderful..i guess MCQ twice+CCS 2,3 times should be okay. I will do Mtb3 read once and start.

Kaplan may not be or seem as high yield and as golden as UWorld for CK but it will elaborate wonderful endurance in you in matter of Time management on exam. im sure it is better than Q bank for Step3. Try it. but do Uworld twice and religiously i would do Uworld one more time than any other Q bank
