Default step three advice

HI all,

I am taking my step three in 27 days. I did UW and got like 50-60%, sometimes I did timed, other times I did untimed. then I have been doing the ccs cases for like the past 2months on and off. I have read the MTB all of it but I need to repeat all of it page by page.
I have an assessment exam that I have not yet activated.
Please give me some guidance on how to proceed. I feel like I have forgotten the mcqs and need to re-subscribe, I wonder which qbank I shld get, or shld I go for Kaplan, I did uw already. I am thinking that even two weeks subscription would be helpful but I don't know if this will what I shld do

To be frank, Kaplan doesn't add anything new. In fact, it complicates some issues. I did UW, and after that Kaplan, and it screwed up some of the concepts I had built. Now, I have to revise UW again! So if you have done UW, stick to it, and just repeat it. Kaplan gives u low yield stuff.

Ok, thank you very much. I will do uw again then, even if it is just for two weeks.
Thank you very much
