Planning Is my Prep plan enough!

HI everyone who has taken the step 3 or planning to take it.

1. Does the Kaplan Step 3 Q bank also has a CCS portion like the UW?

2. I am scheduled to take the step 3 in 1 month, yes 1 month, and I just finished doing UW step 3 Qbank and FA step 3.
I still have to do UW CCS, the self assessment exam of UW and read the Master of the boards of Conrad Fisher,
Do you think it's enough or would suggest another source or anther qBank.
Or the Red's DVD,
Please Help me in my decision, you have helped me so much in all my other steps.

Thank you in advance .

Kaplan Qbank for Step 3 does not have CCS but Kaplan OnlinePrep for Step 3 does have CCS.

I think your plan is more than enough.
In fact, I think you can't do FA and Master the Boards both of them + qbanks in one month. I suggest you read one of them.
This poll may help you make the right choice;

Thank you so much for the infos.

I already did the UW step 3 Qbank.
I will do the UW CCS and the Kaplan Q bank of 1100 questions only.
Do you think doing only the UW CCS is enough to pass the CCS part ???

For the 2 books, between the FA and Mastering the boards, it's very close in the poll you sent me, Can't decide, I already bought both books.
Any advice, can you tell me what you did.

Let me add, I am only studying all day, doing nothing else.

Thank you very much

Yes, I think UW is enough for the CCS part of the exam.

In my personal opinion I think Master the Boards is better than FA for Step 3, in my exam I did them both but I liked MTB more.

Thank you so much, Great help. I will start with the MTB, concentrate on it and if I have the time, will read the FA after.
Thanks again.
