Archer USMLE Step 3 CCS – HighYield Sample Videos

Here are samples from highly subscribed Archer USMLE Step 3 CCS strategies and high-yield CCS case protocols and demonstrations from . All case demonstrations during live sessions are on official USMLE exam software to give you hands-on experience with USMLE STEP 3 EXAM Software. Please realize that these strategies of diagnosis, monitoring, sequencing and timing are extremely crucial to get high performance on Step 3 CCS.

Interactive software like UWorld CCS does not teach the strategy to excel on the exam software, misses several highyield steps, does not respect the simulated time when orders are placed and therefore, is not an exact replica of your exam software. UWORLD CCS is not designed to change response based on your input unlike your Exam software. Therefore, you are left without a clue if you are optimal or unnecessarily invasive or being scored optimally for your actions.. This is one reason why several students get poor performance on their Step 3 CCS component despite practicing UWorld software several times. The following video will prove how different and responsive your EXAM software is!

Please go over above sample to see how intelligent your Exam software is and changes it’s response based on your input. In Archer CCS workshops, some important points are repeatedly applied in various case scenarios so the attendees can retain the subject better – please note these are from Live session. This video shows some case demos and few strategies. Please note that this sample does not include highly popular hundreds of Archer CCS strategies and highyield case demonstrations.

Question of the Week #74, 75

74) A 75 year-old man with history of hypertension presents to the emergency room with complaints of shortness of breath and palpitations. His vital reveal a heart rate 142/min, blood pressure 130/86, temperature 98.6 and oxygen saturation of 89% on room air.
