    Hi all,

    I just got my results back: passed with a 228/ 94

    Here's what I did over a course of three weeks (I'm a PGY3 in IM)
    -read Crush, read the Peds and OB sections twice. Only read a little of the IM section

    -did 650 USMLE world questions and read all the answers (even if i got it right)

    -My cumulative USMLE world score was 50.05%


    Crush alone is not enough. Sorry.

    I don't disagree but you said you didn't even read the whole book.
     
  4. I don't think most people sign up for QBank/UW for Step 2 or 3.

    Too much trouble/money.

    I took Step 3 in early August and passed comfortably (by 30+ points). Still Crush Step 3 is definitely not enough. After the exam on both days I went through crush step 3 to find answers. There were very few answers in this book.

    Unlike Step 1 and Step 2 there really isn't a good review book for Step 3.

    Nope. I had Strong Medicine too. It is the USC Football Team of Step 3 prep. Very, very overrated. It is only good for the CCS cases.
