In this Article, we have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Master the Boards USMLE Step 3, 5th Edition.
The Master the Boards USMLE series is relatively new and its popularity is still growing amongst the students. The contents of the Step 3 book has been designed by Doctor Conrad Fischer, who is the Residency Program Director at Brookdale Hospital (NY).
The book comes as a standalone, unlike the aforementioned series which also had add-ons like cards or volumes. It has 592 pages of content, making it quite desirable for those who do not like studying off a lengthy book. The moderate size of the book means that the content is quite concise, but you are still going to get good information from it.
The book follows a step by step approach, which helps in building your logic and giving you a better understanding of how the things you learned are used in real cases. Each chapter has been designed specially to reflect an exam like the style for diagnostics and tests.
You are also going to learn about certain techniques, like elimination, that are aimed for success at USMLE test-taking and otherwise require quite a bit of experience to learn of. This is quite appreciated as other books usually have a generic set of advice/strategies that most students are already aware of.
The questions have been formatted in a helpful and easy to remember way, which means that you are going to remember the information and quickly click in your mind during your exam.
However, I strongly feel that this book is solely not enough for comprehensive preparation of the USMLE Step 3 examination. Other books in this list are much better individually and should be preferred over this.
– The logical, step-by-step approach
– Give some decent process of elimination techniques for test taking that not everyone might be aware of, and also, some other generic test-taking techniques that may help people with questions they are not sure of
– Question format makes it easy to remember all of the essential information that you need for the test
– Not as comprehensive as others on our list.
