  sure. @decarbazine.

my advice for USMLE step 3.

Was is as easy as it looks...... No sir...... it wasn't (pursuit of happiness).

CCS:
I practiced CCS a lot on FRED. i did atleast 1 hour or 8 CCS cases daily for last 1-2 months. for cases ccscases pdf is good, i also did the 100 star cases. i work 8-5 pm in a hospital. I use to get up at 4 am daily , practise 1-2 hours of ccs and then go to work. In the evening after work, i went to library from 5 - 8.30 pm (15 mins of power nap included) use to some ccs cases and UW 1 - 2 blocks for 1 -2 months.

MCQs:
i gave step 3 after 10 years. so had a lot of catch up to do !!! i did UW Q Bank, archer lectures and ccs videos, medquest step3 stats videos. i also went through first aid step 1, 2 ck. made my notes, for last day revision. on exam day, 1 min before the start of exam, i wrote all the imp formulae on the sheet (that was a helpful trick).

My story: In these 10 years, i have travelled all over the globe for residency, fellowship, exams and job. I have friends and colleagues all across the globe in all time zones. But, i guess something are meant to happen and i was back to US !!!

Some motivational things.
if u fell u have problems, u are not only the one and i will not even get started what i have gone through. u name it, i have been through it.....
When u fell door has closed, trust me other door is about to open, not easy though !!!
it not how hard u get hit, but how fast u get up after it (rocky).
If u have a dream protect it. dont ever give up on it. period.
