    Just wondering when to expect scores back from the step 3 Comlex...
    Took mine on 4/25 and no scores as of yet.
    Also, are scores released on Mondays or Fridays?
    Thanks to all

    By the way, I studied for one week
    Used: Step 2 personal notes I made from Boards and Wards
    Saveresse
    Strong Medicine for the Step 3 (Highly recommend)

    I felt the test was very similar to step 2, maybe a bit better. Lots of primary care stuff...Still some GOOFY questions. (how are we supposed to prepare for how much calcium a woman needs pre/post/during menopause when there are topics like lymphoma, hypertensive emergency, or TB that seem kinda like important and stuff)??!!!??? LOTS of questions that you can easily discern into two choices, but then kinda tricky as to which one they want. I'll let you know how my methods worked when I get my scores.

    Mean is 500, SD is something like 120, I think. Can extrapolate from there

    Took my test on 5/25, so I can expect to get the results on 6/25? I am a little nervous, I feel good about the test, which is what makes me nervous. I cant wait to get this score back, the passing grade is 400?
    Did you get the results in the mail before you got the result online?

    Actually, passing is 350! So you guys actually did pretty good.

    "The minimal passing 3-digit standard score for Level 1 and Level 2 (CE) is 400, for Level 3 is 350, regardless of when the examinations are taken."

    Hey guys, I remember w/ step 2, there was a way you could know if you passed before the scores came out by trying to register for step 3 and if it let you register, you knew you'd passed. Is there a block on registering for step 3 if you passed it?

    It took 6 weeks for my scores to come back as another poster had mentioned. I got a strong feeling you got through it!
