Passed with an 83. I had been a silent observer in this forum since early january. I graduated in the Dominican Republic in 2003. passed step 1 with 83 in January 2004 then Step 2 with a 78 in August 2004. I failed Step 2 CS that same month in 2004 but passed it when I took it again in March 2005. I took step3 for the first time, like an idiot only studying USMLEWORLD and CRUSH.......I failed with a 64!!!!
Things got rough for me, family wise, and I had to let medicine go for a while to help my wife and newborn. I started dusting off the books las NOvember and bought a set of notes of PREMIER REVIEW in fleBAY from some dude who had just taken the test and was selling his notes and some CD's with many "Extras". Well, I can say that with just the Premier Review I was doing the NMS Questions with more than 87% correct. My USMLEWORLD was around the same level.....more like 84%. For CCS I just used the Premier Review CCS Stuff (came as a combo from the auction purchase) and the 1st Aid CCS (of which a PDF version was on one of the CD's). Overall, I felt I may have been able to get a higher score.....had I studied longer the same material, but it was hard enough on me with work and the family and I figured "its better now than never".......so I sat for the test. I can't write about which CCS Cases I got cause I know that is meaningless......its the same typical 100 cases you see written in every review book. If you have any questions.......please ask.
BY the way, in case the guy who sold me those notes and CD's on FleBAY is reading......THANKS AGAIN FOR THE PACKAGE ........brother, YOU SAVED MY LIFE !!!!!!
