Step 3 CCS is the Computer-based Case Simulations (CCS), a compulsory part of USMLE Step 3 exams. These case simulations are designed to test the doctor’s abilities to independently manage his patients.
Each candidate has to perform 13 Computer-based Case Simulations in total on the second day of exam. 10 – 20 minutes are given to perform each of them.
To score higher grades in Step 3 CCS, it is advisable to go through USMLE Step 3 CCS lectures. These lectures provide guidance on how to handle these cases.
We help students with USMLE Step 3 CCS tips, cases, tutorial, mnemonics, practice and tricks in the USA and all across the world through our Gold USMLE Mnemonics notes in our Step 3 CCS USMLE prep and review courses. Students who use our Step 3 CCS tutorials, tips, cases, mnemonics and practices to approach the simulated cases, perform better as they are less likely to skip important details.
Step 2 CK Prep Course 30 days study plan is a complete study guide for Step 2 CK USMLE candidates.
- Practice with a Friend: Take a sample case and practice directly with a companion. This will help in critical thinking and time management required for performing well in Step 3 CCS.
- Practice on Software: Practice as much as you can on the Software. Though software may have slightly different features, you will learn effective patient management within restricted time.
Step 3 CCS cheat sheet are commonly available on the internet and are a helpful tool for Step 3 CCS. Step 3 CCS grading is done on the CCS performance of the students. One CCS equals 2-2.5% of total marks. The CCS score is combined with the score on Multiple Choice Questions to yield the exact result of the candidate.
In our Step 3 CCS USMLE Prep Course we assess the students and grade them after every solved simulation. Our experienced doctors then give their reviews so that the student can correct themselves.
We have different Step 3 CCS review course packages which feature 50-100 Computer-based standardized case simulations for practice.
