    Hey all,

    what are the best books for USMLE/COMLEX Step 3? Crush step 3 by brochert, swanson's family practice review, and kaplan's q bank seem to be the best way to go. I would like your opinions please. thanks!

    Get the OMT review book by Savarese. I read it from cover to cover in 1 day (short book) and scored off the charts on OMT. All I had was an asterisk on the high performance margin. Off the charts.

    That book rocks!!!

    All I used was Crush Step 3 and the questions given to us by the NBME. I thought Crush Step 3 was enough.

    What does OMT stand for? Haven't heard of the OMT review book.

    Dude, if you don't know what OMT is, then you must be an MD. IT stands for Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy. The book in question reviewed the basics of OMT, and the questions in it are EXACTLY what you see on the test.

    How did you do? Does one's Step 3 score matter anyway? For fellowships maybe?
