  I have a question,
I failed Step 3 twice and I need to make a significant drastic change in the way I'm preparing this exam. For that I've decided to do one of these review online courses. So my question for everyone here is: which review course is the best one, for example Archer vs Kaplan?

I only have two months to prepare for it again.....
Any thoughts?
Thanks

  I agree you need a solid foundation for Step 2 CK.

I'd recommend you do all of UWorld Step 2 CK focusing first on your weak areas according to your most recent Step 3 score performance report. Do both UWorld Step 2 and step 3 for your weakest areas. Pull all your weak areas to at least borderline and use the CCS to put you over the passing mark.

Do UWorld CCS, Archer CCS, Crush CCS and ccscases.com. You really need to do the best you can on CCS.

You may also elect to do the NBME self assessment for Step 2 to gauge your CK knowledge and also NBME for Step 3.

Did you take the NBME for Step 3?

In terms of review courses, they've never helped me because at the end of the day you will still have to review and study on your own. Get Medquest videos for Step 3 and keep on going over all of the videos until you remember it!

Good luck!

  I tried Kaplan on demand which was not very efficient for me. Then was thinking about getting a in center prep which was very expensive. Finally took the Premier Live Course which was awesome. It was 8 days , including interactive CCS classes
