The study materials r:
1)Premiere Review Notes(Good)
2)Master the Boards(Excellent Reviews)
3)Archer's Notes for Step-3(Very Good)
4)Crush Step-3
5)First Aid for Step-3
6)Kaplan Step-3(latest edition)
7)USMLE World/Kaplan Q Banks
8)USMLE World CCS(Best for CCS)
9)CCS Webinar Workshop(Dr. Red's)

U can choose from the above.
Most test-takers study for 2-3 months for Step-3,but it can be lesser or more than that as well.
This due to the fact that people usually only want to pass it.

Good Luck!

Kaplan Q Bank is more close to the actual exam diffiulty level in case of Step-3 .
In my opinion, go for both the Kaplan and USMLE World Q Banks.
Good Luck!

2) Master the Boards
3) Premiere Review(Use for Certain areas)
4) Kaplan and U World Q Banks
5) UWorld CCS
6) First Aid for a quick and brief revision.

Good Luck!

yeah prep time will differ.. I would like to know how is step 3 different from step one and ck... i mean since there are no Multiple choice question on ccs part, so how should one prepare for it before taking the q banks

Step-3 stresses mainly on the management part and the continuation of care.
For CCS u need to do the USMLE World CCS cases and that will definitely help u master this portion of Step-3 exam.U can also practice the five CCS cases on the USMLE orientation CD.
Good Luck!
