USMLEWorld USMLE World derived from NBME

As am prepping for Step1 I did three forms from NBME and I am also doing UW. I discovered that many many of the UW questions are in fact repeating the same concepts of NBME. They just changed the text or the picture and some modifications of the options.

Is that the great UW you are talking about

Default So what ...

What's wrong with that!!
It's perfectly OK to recapitulate the NBME.
You should applause them for doing so because this means two advantages:
First: NBME score is very predictive of USMLE score and so subsequently UW will also be predictive.
Second: Content focus and HY points are then be repeated in the real exam when you do UW.

I don't see any problem with that
