Mapping CCS is another product on the market which is marketed to help prepare you for the USMLE Step 3 CCS portion of the test. It is not a program. It is an “interactive” pdf. The question is on the real test day, are you going to be using an interactive pdf to take your test or are you going to be using a computer program?
Obviously the answer is that the CCS portion of the test is a computerized test and not an interactive pdf like in Mapping CCS. This does not mimic the realities of test day. There are a lot of things that this format will not prepare you for. Getting comfortable with the software is extremely important in your test preparation. It simply will not cut it to study from a pdf. At ccscases.com, we offer a fully developed program that mimics the real program that you will see on test day. You will be comfortable with how information is presented to you, how to order orders/medications, how to find important information, how to advance the clock, and how to search for the correct orders that you are looking for. Does the Mapping CCS product have 20,000 orders to choose from? Does the Mapping CCS grade you? Does it give you feedback depending on what you ordered? We are being rhetorical because the answer is no. CCSCases.com offers all of these things from a full set of orders, grading, feedback, clock advancement, and all the features that will be available on the real test on test-day.
We ask that you consider using our interactive computerized program for the PC/Mac. You can try it out free here.
