Beyond Our Step 3 QBank

Once you become familiar with our Step 3 question bank and active-learning tools, we encourage you to explore our CCS cases, self-assessments, biostatistics review, and mobile app. Each serves a specific purpose in furthering your clinical development and making your Step 3 preparation more efficient.

Computer-Based Case Simulations

UWorld Step 3 CCS cases evaluate your ability to diagnose, treat, and monitor simulated patients in an interactive setting. Familiarity with this interface is crucial to improving your score on this section of the exam. Our first-of-its-kind Step 3 CCS software features:

  • 40+ classic Step 3 CCS cases that cover essential topics in multiple specialties
  • 50+ interactive cases that closely mimic highly tested Step 3 topics
  • An interface that uses free-text order entry similar to what’s found on the actual exam
  • Comprehensive explanations that include tips on the recommended clinical approach, scoring features, and clock management

Step 3 Practice Tests

UWorld Step 3 self-assessments closely replicate the experience of the official Step 3 exam to help you prepare for test day. Each self-assessment consists of four 60-minute blocks containing 40 unique multiple-choice questions. These questions cannot be found in our QBank. Once completed, you can review:

  • Detailed explanations for each question, including vivid illustrations and charts
  • Performance analytics and your relative ranking compared to other residents
  • An approximate 3-digit USMLE score based on historical UWorld data

Biostatistics Review

Biostatistics and epidemiology are essential to performing well on the USMLE and becoming a successful physician. Our review will help you:

  • Learn important concepts and strengthen your fundamental knowledge
  • Apply content in exam scenarios through vignettes
  • Learn and apply step-by-step calculations
  • Integrate material from multiple questions to increase your comprehension

Frequently Asked Questions

UWorld Step 3 practice questions are written at or above the official exam’s difficulty level to prepare residents for test day and their careers. We offer content-rich explanations for correct and incorrect answers, and realistic CCS cases for professional development.
Our Step 3 question bank contains more than 2,000 USMLE Step 3 sample questions. Each question and explanation is written by our team of practicing physicians to reflect the latest USMLE Step 3 syllabus.
We currently offer over 90 UWorld CCS cases. 40+ are classic Step 3 CCS cases covering essential topics in multiple specialties. 50+ are interactive cases that closely mirror the most tested Step 3 cases. Our interface uses exam-style, free-text order entry to build your familiarity with the system and confidence for test day.
UWorld Step 3 practice exams feature four 60-minute blocks containing 40 questions each. These MCQs cannot be found in our Step 3 QBank. This setup is similar to Day 1 of your real Step 3 exam, which consists of six 60-minute blocks with roughly 40 multiple-choice items each.
Our in-house team of doctors recommends studying for at least 6 months; however, this preparation will likely look different than during your previous Step exams. With an increased workload, many Step 3 candidates need to spread out their prep to cover critical exam concepts. Regardless of how long you prepare, it’s important that you block off the necessary time required to incorporate key concept focus, biostatistics and CCS cases into your review.

Frequently Asked Questions

New Purchase: All new subscriptions go into effect from the time they are activated and not at the time of setup/purchase. A subscription can be activated immediately or any time thereafter. If your initial purchase consists of multiple courses (Qbank, Self-Assessment exam, CCS, etc.), each can be activated individually and independently via your account on our website. This process of activating a subscription after purchase allows you the flexibility to start a subscription when you are truly ready to use it.

We recommend that all subscriptions be activated within 180 days of setup/purchase. Once a subscription is activated, it cannot be paused or suspended for any reason and will run continuously for the duration of the course material.

Renewal: A renewal is an extension of time to continue access to a current activated subscription. Because a renewal is an extension to an already active subscription, it is effective from the existing expiration date, not from the day of purchase and cannot be deferred to start at a later date/time.

Note: All of our subscriptions are based on the Eastern Time Zone (GMT/UTC -5 hours or New York Time), which may be different than your local time zone.

Individuals purchasing our CPA Review product may finance their purchase using Affirm during checkout process.

A soft credit check, a credit check that does not affect your credit score, will be performed by Affirm to determine your loan eligibility.
You will need a US based bank account to qualify.

All refunds are evaluated on a case-by-case basis for products purchased directly from UWorld. One case has no bearing on another. Refund amounts determined by UWorld are final.

In-App Purchases: We are unable to process any refunds for purchases made via mobile application (in-app). Please contact Apple for all refund/credit requests for Apple in-app purchases.

USMLE Step 2 CS, Step 3 CCS, Subject Reviews & Self-Assessment Exams: These subscriptions are non-refundable, non-transferable, and cannot be converted into another subscription.

CPA Review: Students may request to cancel their CPA review product only within 10-days of activation of any of the materials. To qualify for a refund, no more than 10% of the course (lectures, Qbank, or a combination there-of) may have been used per exam section. All CPA Review refunds are subject to a cancellation fee of $75 (for single section purchases) or $250 (for package purchases), plus any applicable shipping charges. No return of merchandise is necessary.

All other Qbanks: Refunds are considered for subscriptions of more than 30 days. Refund amounts are based on the number of days elapsed since the subscription start date or the number of questions used, whichever amounts to a higher deductible.

Example scenarion: An individual purchases a 180-day Qbank subscription and generates a few test blocks equal to 20% of the questions in the Qbank. After 45 days, he/she requests a refund. Because the elapsed duration is greater than the percentage of questions used, the refund amount will be based on a subscription converted to the closest duration (60 days) by deducting the applicable 60-day subscription fee from the refund. In the same scenario, if the individual had used 85% of the questions, the refund would be 15% of the subscription fee paid.

Note 1: A processing fee of 10% (minimum of $10 and maximum of $25) will be applied to all refund amounts.

Note 2: All refunds, pro-rated or otherwise, must be requested within 360 days of original purchase. Refunds for purchases made more than 360 days ago will be issued as non-refundable, non-transferable store credit.

Note 3: Subscribers must notify UWorld of their intent to obtain a refund before activating their subscription (or) during the active duration. If the reset option is used or all of the questions are used, no refund will be allowed (see “I want to reset/delete my Qbank test history (or) start all over again, is this possible?” below for further details). No refunds will be offered for expired subscriptions.

Note 4: For combination package purchases, individual subscription fees will be applied when calculating the refund. If any self-assessment Exam(s) is utilized from a package, the entire purchase is rendered non-refundable.

Note 5: Although access to Qbanks via certain mobile devices is provided as an additional feature, it is not intended to be a replacement for computer access, and no refunds or cancellations will be honored due to user inability to install and/or use the provided software on any mobile device (regardless of whether the device meets the minimum system requirements).

A renewal is an extension of time to continue accessing an active subscription, and it will not start the subscription over, provide a reset, or grant access to additional questions
that were not previously accessible. Because a renewal is an extension to an already active subscription, it is effective from the existing expiration date, not from the date of purchase, and
cannot be deferred in any way to start at a later date/time.

Please note that to qualify for renewal pricing, you will need to renew the course before it expires. Renewals are not offered to expired subscriptions. If you fail to secure
a renewal before the expiration date, you will need to purchase a new subscription at the regular price directly from our website to regain access to the material.

Note: All times and dates displayed for subscription expiration correspond with the Eastern Time Zone (GMT/UTC -5 hours or New York Time), which may be different than your
local time zone.

Note: If your initial purchase was a combination package, you will need to renew each active subscription individually. You do not need to renew a course that has not been

You may request to upgrade or downgrade your subscription purchase as long as it has not been activated. If you purchase a combination package, all included subscriptions must be unused. Please be advised that current subscription pricing will apply.

If your subscription has been activated, unfortunately, we cannot upgrade it retroactively. If seeking to downgrade, please refer to our refund policy for available options.

We do not offer custom duration(s) or combination packages other than those outlined on the website. Please refer to our purchase page for currently available subscriptions (including discounted combination packages for some products).
