Books that have only questions with no review content are not listed here you can find them here. Similarly Flashcards are not listed.
Books that are outdated (8 years or older) and that do not have updated editions also get removed from the poll, their votes are also deleted in the process.
If we have missed a Step 3 Review book, please post about it in the mainstream Step 3 Forum and we'll add it to this poll.

No Replies!
You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always check our Step 3 Preparation Tag for discussions about step 3 preparation and related books.

Default First Aid vs Master the Boards (MTB vs FA) for Step 3

This absolutely makes no sense to me.
I read MTB for step 2 CK and it was a complete diaster compared to FA for step 1 which I loved.
I have read parts of MTB for step 3 and it's not any beter than step 2 ck.
Flipping through FA for step 3 which was recently updated I feel it is a much better book.

Can anyone who has actually read FA comment?
