Live USMLE Step 3 Review – Details

Archer Online Step III review is the most unique way to listen & participate in the live reviews with out leaving your home. This innovative lectures have reached about thousands of Step3 students in the last 10 years and have achieved a very high success rate. It is our practice to mail a survey to the attendees after each Rapid Review and CCS Workshop – about 100% of our attendees rated us “Very helpful”, “Extremely patient”, ” Very affordable” and “Very focused and highyield”. Almost 95% felt that they did not need any other review material for step 3 preperation apart from our powerpoint slides and live lectures.

The review costs $1095 and includes 30 hours of rapid live lectures and all the high-yield study material for all the topics mentioned below. The idea of the rapid review is to focus on most frequently tested Step3 clinical topics which are usually not clearly explained in many review books that are available on the market. This review intends to make step3 live lectures extremely affordable and easily accessible for everyone.

The rapid review online virtual classroom will be in the same way as CCS Workshop. You can raise your hand when you have a question and your question will be answered at the end of each sub section. We recommend you to write down all the questions as the topic lecture runs. At the end of each sub-section, our teaching physician will be available for you to answer your questions. This course is three-day cumulative session of about 26 hours long, stresses on high-yield topics and step3 questions. No extensive details – you will be provided with explanations on the concepts that are exactly needed to pass and score high on this exam. You will be quizzed during the session with sample questions after the topic Review. Extremely interactive with personal attention placed on each and every attendee. After you sign up, you will be provided with high-yield study material in a power-point format.
Our first two Rapid reviews were 2-day long (20 hours) in duration. But with a desire to cover more topics, we extended it now to 3-day (26 hour) long review since April 2009. This review worked out very well and received a huge applause from the attendees.

  1. Dr.Red,
    Thank you for introducing the pay-per-view option for USMLE step 3 review…this is extremely helpful for persons like me work predominanlty on the weekends!

    Also, may you kindly consider making the notes available say in “Adobe Acrobat” format, for example.
    The ppt. format is great for online lecturing and electronic media review– but, hard on printers for printouts– I would rather invest my $$ in your reviews than jogging to Office Depot or Staples for ink cartridges!

    Thanks again for your solid teaching and dare to dream innovative approaches!

  2. Dr Red,
    Are there any updated changes from previous video lectures?
    Sounds like it will be helpful and affordable to candidates. Thanks
