Searching for NBME 7 will not yield good results because the server will skip the number 7, it searches for full words only.

To look for NBME 7, It's recommended you go to the tag page (just below the search box) and click on the NBME tag link and you'll see all threads tagged NBME, then from these look for the NBME 7 you are looking for.
