USMLE Step 3 Written Testimonials

I had joined Gold USMLE step 3 classes and i even passed the exam. Dr. Thomas and Dr Tarik offer the classes in which they gave us an idea on how step 3 exam is conducted, what can we expect from day 1 and day 2 of the exam. They helped me with the topics which are difficult to understand and helped me prepare for the CCS and biostats part of the exam as well. I can say that the course instructors have great knowledge and were very helpful. I would recommend this classes for people who want to prepare for their exam in a short time and get a good score.

-Dr Tejal Rana, MD

I scored high on my STEP 3 . I would like to strongly recommend GOLDUSMLE REVIEW FOR HELPING ME PASS MY STEP 3 exam.
The questions were extremely high yield for my exam and helped me push through the difficult blocks. The sessions were highly informative and covered all the topics necessary for the exam in an organized and succinct Manner.

Dr Anand Krishnan, MD

I used the GOLDUSMLE FOR the 8 weeks course and it was a quick fix for my exam. Step 3 content was excellent to supplement going through practice questions when studying for Step 3, and it really helped me to go through specific topics from start to finish when I got questions on them. It also helped to see additional questions that might pop up with the various topics! The course instructors were extremely dedicated to include the most up to date information on these topics, which helps when trying to decide which resource is most correct when studying.

Dr. Frank G., MD

I don’t think I would have passed my step 3 without Dr Thomas + Dr Tarik’s help in Biostats and high yield review on CCS. He teaches us how to approach MCQ, and do them quicker as well as reviewing all the high yield material. Dr Thomas and Dr Tarik were very knowledgable and they really cares about ther students passing. I took an 8week live online course 7-12pm and then 5pm-9pm every day. And they I paid for private sessions 2 weeks before my exam to focus on my weaknesses. Thank God for him!

I would highly recommend this course.

Dr. Debbie Ramirez, MD

I took the step 3 course and it helped me understand the general concepts as well as have a broader overall knowledge of step 3. The CCS review for 10 min and 20 min cases were the best. This is the best move I have made while preparing for USMLE. This is a 6 week course but even after the course ends, you can sit in on the classes again to review topics you are having trouble with (I did with a couple of IM topics). The course goes over the principles in a high yield fashion and towards the end of class, there is a review of Step 3 questions.

I highly recommend the course as the instructors are very knowledgeable and will get you through all the relevant information.


GOLDUSMLE really helped me excell in my recent step 3 exam. The program really helped me focus on highest yield material and gave me excellent test taking strategies that was utilized on the exam. Tariq the instructor for step 3 goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that students understand the content. He also helped with the CCS cases in that he helped by giving a roadmap to approach all the cases. For someone who is not in the clinical setting currently, Tariq made the ccs cases easy regardless of 10mins or 20 mins cases. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GOLD USMLE to anyone studying for USMLE step 3.


PASSED MY STEP 3 exam with a high score, I am very happy with my results and I would like to thank goldusmlereview for helping me get through it, I improved my scores on UW thanks to the goldusmle teaching and tips. They helped me excel and gave me the correct steps for each CCS case 10 min +20 min, it was very effective and much better than other courses. I found the sessions to be very helpful and productive. I was able to finish all the MCQ and CCS cases ahead of time. I strongly recommend goldusmle they saved my career.


Excellent review course for step 3 overall. Especially for the residents who have limited time for study prep. The course is structured to cover the high yield material and the instructor perfectly reviews the biostatistics, basic sciences, and ccs in as less as 4 weeks. I highly recommend this to anyone who is seeking an interactive rapid review course.

Dr. Thashi Uppalapati, MD

I would like to strongly recommend the GOLDUSMLE 8 weeks STEP 3 program. I would like to thank everyone on the GOLDUSMLE staff for helping me through this step 3 exam. I am very happy with my score. The questions were very long but I got through it and finished each block on time. It is very difficult to wear a n95 mask the whole time, I strongly recommend bringing multiple masks that are very light. the KN95 is lighter and better.

Dr Catherine Ruth, MD

I feel thankful for this course. I did my step 2CS preparation here and later Step 3 review and interview preparation. Step 3 review was very important for me. I was tired to study alone and without motivation. With this course I learned how to pick the best answers and how to think while doing questions and I had productive hours of study. Thank you Gold!

-Dr Gabriela Piazza Sassi, MD

I scored high on my step 3 thanks to Goldusmle step 3review sessions. It is the perfect review for students that want to brush up the topics just before their exam. I was able to answer the questions on my real exam with a steady pace, and never had to hesitate for any question in each block. You have to be consistent when it comes down to the timing and GoldUSMLE review helped me develop the CCS skills necessary to do well on the modules, and the MCQ review was fantastic.

-Dr. Dr. Emilia B. MD

I decided to try GOLDUSMLE step 3 online classes and it was the best choice I made. At Goldusmle, I was able to understand why things worked the way they did instead of memorizing a bunch of random facts. Thanks to Dr. Thomas’ teaching style and the tutors’ 1-on-1 attention, I passed not only Step 3 but also matched into the program that was close to my home ! GoldUSMLE is the reason I continued medical school and became a doctor.

-Dr. Evan D., MD

Please accept my sincere THANKS to Dr. Thomas and the entire GoldUSMLE step 3 team. It really was a wonderful experience for me and was definitely worth it!
I thoroughly enjoyed the online review sessions, they were very convenient especially with this COVID situation.

-Dr. Maria D., MD

Thank you, Dr. Thomas and staff for all your support and help during what was the most challenging and emotionally trying time for me with the COVID 19 pandemic I was forced to stay home, thank god I was able to learn from you guys.. You gave me the courage to continue and tools to know how to do so. I am happy to say I scored higher than my practice tests on my step 3 exam and I look forward to doing the practice residency interview training with you guys.

-Dr. Ajay J., MD

Two of my best friends took the USMLE Step 3 at GoldUSMLE online sessions. One has passed and the other is waiting for her results. Every time I have the chance to speak to them they tell me how wonderful the program is. I never considered taking a review until 3 weeks ago. I studied on my own and passed Step 2 Then I started studying for Step 3 but something happened & my world flipped upside down – My mother died. Now I can’t even look at a book and my concentration is completely gone. I feel confident that your program would help me move forward with my study plans and helped me focus despite the tragedy I experienced.

-Dr. Mark S., MD

I have a student who just came back from your program. She said “I learned tremendous amount in a short period of time!!” This is great! I have been telling students about the program for the MCQs and the CCS . They are always energetic about how to best prepare for the step3.

-Dr. Lyam C., MD

I had a lot of things going on in my life that were preventing me from studying well. I couldn’t make any progress. I tried 2 other review courses which turned out to be a waste of time and money. When I heard about GoldUSMLE I was hesitant because I had already spent a fair amount of money. I felt I had few options left and decided to try it because of the small class size and the access to the staff & Dr. Thomas. I was hopeful with the first week and by the second week I had my confidence back. Dr. Thomas’ methodology really clicked for me, and he really nailed it when it came to my hang-ups and the staff was always patient & kind. Long story short, I am now in my first year of residency doing well.

-Dr. Parvathy S., MD

Thank you so much for your encouraging words and support. You helped me through the most challenging experience of my life. You gave me the tools that I needed to make it and I know I have what it takes to get through my step 3 exam. I will miss all of the staff at GoldUSMLE. I consider you my friends.

-Dr Danielle M., MD

Thanks to all for reminding me to have confidence in myself. Without Dr. Thomas and his staff, I would not have had the confidence to do well & pass my exam. I will take your influence & powerful concepts with me! Love this program & everyone in it!

-Dr. Daniel S., MD

I had such a positive experience at GoldUSMLE. I have wanted for years to see all the information I have been exposed to in my medical education presented in a cohesive way that would allow me to understand it rather than just simply memorize it. The staff was so friendly, and I could not think of a better place or better people to spend several weeks with. Dr. Thomas was easily the best teacher I have had throughout my years in medical training, and thanks to him I now understand core physiological principles that will allow me to reason through problems. Best of all, I am excited about my education now! Thanks so much to GoldUSMLE and all the staff for a stellar program and experience!

-Dr L .Liu, MD

Thanks again for all the help when I was there. GoldUSMLE is a great program and I have recommended it to my friends. I felt a lot more confident after all the step 3 classes and my test taking skills are at an all time high as it has never been better. It was also very helpful to have the tutors point out where I had problems, it helped me know where to focus. I am still waiting for my results and Im confident that I passed.
