what is your study schedule like? how many times have you gone over FA and Uworld? cos usually knowing those 2 sources pretty well can get you a 250+ on the real deal

it really depends on what your goal is...for me personally if i scored 232 on an NBME i will be writing the test right away cos 232 is a great score in my opinion...its above the average, and i am sure most ppl here will agree with me but then again it depends on what your goal is.

yah no problem...if your friends been advising you the same thing they probably know you better than me so i think you should go ahead and give this sucker!...as far as NBMEs are concerned 13, 15, 16 are all the newer ones not just 16 some ppl score the same as they did in 15 some 13 some 16 it really depends but i don't think you will score anything less than 230...before you go what did you do during those 10 days where you went from 222 to 232?

thanks alot for all the advice, basically i felt i made mistakes in stuff from F.A,cz i personally like kaplan so i had realy ignored F.A (had done twice before) so i did a good read of F.A,believe u gotta be so thorough with evry word of it,even now i feel F.A covers most of my mistakes from nbme 15,so just F.A ,U.W notes more than enough!

good luck
