  I made a mistake and ordered mtb for IM boards instead of for step 3...is there any one who can comment on the actual difference in these 2 books and if i should return this and get step 3 book or are these books quite similar in content?
i have heard that non conrad fischer authored chapters are quite bad in the step 3 book?
please advise ,
thanx

  arnd 450 pages.
MTB IM- very few mistakes. some chapters r out class - eg; renal
yea sometimes i do mksap 14/15, just to know that my uw scores are not false positive
For IM MTB IM is a nice book, and for other subjects you believe or not Kaplan has all the info, its just the way how well u read it.
MCQs- UW, any FM mcqs for Geriatrics, sports med
if u have time do random mcqs from here and there. I use Kaplan, NMS, MKSAPs, ACP board review, Kaplan, usmle consult, and Lange step 3 mcqs (just 10- 20 or so a day)
My many friends told me to o more and more qs ( while repeating UW again and again) just to answer the q if asked in different way.

  To meduploader
Hi meduploader, could you please tell me how to get MKSAP's or NMS and etc. questions. I just did UW 2x and I have the feeling is not enough to go for the exam and get a reasonable score, in other hand I have to take my exam in a few weeks, in July. If you have any suggestion for me I will appreciate it.

Thank you
