* where to start

Does anyone have any advice as to how to start? i started reading through MTB 3 and started the uworld qbank, but unlike the step 2 uworld that is divided into IM,Pediatrics and such, the step 3 bank is divided into fundamentals of practice and advanced clinical knowledge. which left me confused because up till now I usually always went subject wise once and then randomly. Does anyone have a good strategy to get things going?

  Start reviewing your CK material and do Step 3 qbank simultaneously. Also if your CK was recent then you dont have to go back and do CK UW but rather review your UW notes. But if it was a while back like a year ago then I suggest you do UW CK qbank as well.

For Step 3 pick one source and stick with it. I personally like MTB 3, and I also used that for CK. In addition, make sure you review some high yield topics on UptoDate such as alogorithms.

Notes: CK source + MTB 3+ UptoDate on HY topics
Qbank: UW CK and Step 3 and also what is helpful is to do buch of NBME exams and clinical mastery series.

For CCS: I am using UW, Crush ccs, archer videos.
