        Other USMLE Step 3 Books

Any of the USMLE Step 2 books will serve you well for the Step 3. It is usually best to review from material you had mastered once before. There are two books I can recommend especially for the USMLE Step 3 to give you an edge:

Divided into 127 short chapters that deal with the most common medical problems, each preceeded by a case history. Out of print. Get it, while you still can!
