ccs is only 25% of the total exam , i have a friend who scored high on ccs, closer to high performance, but failed due to MCQs....thats the truth as i have seen her score report, so be wise before trusting the forums and not working hard enough.....step3 needs a lot of hard work, it is last exam of USMLE series, there are NO short cuts....

Of course it's the MCQs

The multiple choice questions constitute 80% of the exam structure. They are definitely more important than CCS in determining success.
