View Full Version : Retake Step 3

08-12-2008, 01:21 PM

I took Step 3 about 2 weeks ago, so no results yet. But, in case of retaking the exam, how soon can someone retake it or reapply for it? Are there any time limits?

Hello everyone.
I got my results in 19 days (fast!). And, I passed 206/85. :)

I took it in the beginning of 2nd yr of residency. I took off some vacation time to study (I couldn't study while going to work and being on call). I used Crush step 3 (I read it at least 3 times) and USMLEWORLD questions ( I did about 950 of them). I also reviewed my answers and took notes on questions I didn't know well.
I didn't really use anything else, except to look up some topics from IM in my step 2 kaplan notes.
I was scoring about 50-55% on usmleworld questions, higher in my own specialty (peds, about 75% on uw q's).
And, I prayed a lot!

Good luck to everyone!
