I gave my step 3 about 4 weeks ago and have cleared it got 81(191).

Guys I would like to just share my experience about preparing and giving it.

1 Take as much time as you can but do well
2 Give it when you are comfortable
3 do step 2ck notes kaplan,
4 UW gives a good orientation. CCS and MCQs are important.
5 step 3 kaplan Q book ( very very very useful book few questions came directly from it) you will not be able to finish the blocks or might require 2 hours to finish each block in this book but the Qs improve your reading skills a lot.
6 Though scores are important they cannot be detrimental. So concentrate on your strengths and build on them. Which subject you are comfortable be thorough with them. That will ensure you will be doing well where you know your subject.
7 For medicine if you have time go through washing ton manual.
8 During the examination I dont think it will be possible to finish all the blocks so dont worry about it. In my case I was consistently left with 8 qs in each block to be answered in last 5 mins so guessed things in the last 5 mins without reading the question.
9 If there is any question which you dont feel like reading because of fatigue just leave it go to the next one.
10 I did not do NMBE because of $ factor but if you can do that good.

ALL the best
