USMLE Step 3 CCS Written Testimonials

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.


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

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

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.


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.

Understanding the USMLE Step 3 CCS and Our Tailored Preparation Approach

The USMLE Step 3 CCS segment is a pivotal exam component that tests candidates’ ability to manage patient care in a simulated clinical environment. It requires clinical knowledge, decision-making, and efficient time management to navigate complex patient scenarios.

The Gold USMLE Step 3 CCS Prep Course provides extensive resources and realistic practice opportunities to address these challenges and equip candidates for success.

Understanding the USMLE Step 3 CCS

The structure of the Step 3 CCS is meticulously designed to simulate various patient scenarios across different age groups, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds, presenting with both acute and chronic conditions, as well as routine health care needs.

This setup requires clinical acumen, strategic thinking, and prioritization to ensure optimal patient outcomes within the given constraints​​.

A critical aspect of excelling in the CCS section is familiarity with the exam’s interface and the dynamic nature of patient management it entails. Advancing the clock within the simulation allows for the progression of time to see the results of tests and treatments, requiring candidates to anticipate and respond to changes in the patient’s condition. This element introduces complexity, emphasizing the importance of efficient time management and adaptability. Performance is evaluated based on the appropriateness, timing, and sequencing of actions, where indicated actions are credited and unnecessary or harmful actions are penalized. Mastery of these elements and a keen understanding of standard care protocols and ethical considerations are paramount for achieving a high score​​.
