I will be starting my residency in the state of Pennsylvania this upcoming July, and I plan to take the APMLE Part III in June. My plan is to start preparing for the exam in the next few weeks.I am curious as to what materials to use to study for Part III.

I do realize the exam content is very similar to Part II. I have used Watkins, certain chapters from Pearls of Wisdom, and McGlamry for anesthesia when preparing for Part II. In addition, I did Board Vitals and read through the Crozer Manual.
What else should I be using for Part III, or should that suffice?

its just Part II again (content wise) unless they’ve significantly changed it. Might actually be easier. Pick a crappy podiatry manual, read it over a few days before the exam so you feel better about yourself, pass the test.
 
Unless it has substantially been changed since I took it in 2016 - it is not substantially similar to part 2. It is MUCH, MUCH, MUCH easier. Like - could probably be passed by a nurse or a 2nd year podiatry student. This test exists because someone thought it must exist, because the MDs were doing it, and because taking $900 from podiatrists is a rite of passage. Skim pocket pod the night before and after the test you will know you studied too much. The pass rate historically has been 98-99%. Some of the schools have somehow historically graduated students who don't speak English so that probably accounts for the 1-2%.
