I finished my step 3 yesterday. It was long and stressful. I am confident to have passed the exam... will see in 4 weeks. I have to admit that the USMLE world mcq,s were great except lacking sufficient info about prevention screening. This is about the only thing that I have done in addition to 60 CCS cases. Did not have time to do them more than once but I think once was ,hopfuly, good enough for me. As for the CCS, all my 9 cases came from the cases of usmleworld.com and all 9 finished after 8-12 minutes and never went on longer.

So if you have not been doing USMLE world questions; start doing them. This is my take on the whole thing. The real test is very similar and the difficulty is somewhat comparable. I scored 63.9 % cumulatively on the total 1230 msq.s. I pretty much started with 59, 60. 61 ie had no real improvement over the course of going over them except for the lat 3-4 blocks. I had too many ethecs, trauma, rashes and gyn questions.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND LIKE I HAVE HEARD IN THE PAST SAY AND IT IS THE REALITY: YOU NEED THE WORD PASS NOT 250!
