Hello,

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?

Thanks.

Jane

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!
