Default Best time to take NBME test

I think it's a common mistake among students that they all take NBME few days before the exam.

I suggest that two weeks before finishing your Kaplan Q bank and UW bank take one or two forms of NBME.

If you score higher than 520-540 then u r now ready go schedule ur test.

If you did not score above 520-540 [ see this post for details ] then you should go back and consolidate your weak areas as per the NBME score report.

So don't schedule ur exam before doing at least one NBME form.

Good luck
