      i think even though it takes a bit time initially it might be useful for step 3. i think there are no special books for step 3. can you please correlate its usefulness to step 3. it is the only reason why i am tempted to do MKSAP.

      Are you in a situation where your Step 3 score matters? There's not much out there for it (although there is still USMLEWorld, First Aid, Crush, etc.) because most of us are just looking to pass.
