USMLEWorld UWSA1 score 230

Hi

I gave a USMLE World SIM test 1 and scored 550/230



How good do you guys think this score is I am planing to take the exam in first week of July

I am planing to go for NBME please suggest which form to take I need to decide soon weather I need to change the test dates or not

My average percentage on USMLE word Q bank is 70+

I will appreciate the help

The Sim test had certain questions and slides which I had never seen do we get the same stuff in real exam this is making me tense

Regards

I got the same score and also doing test early July! Just keep pushing through, I heard NBME 7 & 11 are the best predictors, and that 12 may be a bit more difficult. I'm planning to get all three done...

No this is my first time through the questions, I am just 20% done with UW average 64%, hoping to plow through as much as possible in the next couple weeks. I say you should go for it and take an assessment, it helped me figure out what my weaknesses are (read: biochem), so I'm planning to go through that chapter in FA.

This is probably the single best thing I did in my prep, helped me memorize a lot of FA, it's basically FA on flashcards. I wouldn't suggest using it if you have less than 2 months or so to go, but if you have a long time, they are awesome!
Let me know if you'd like a free 1 month trial and I can post a link.

I haven't done Kaplan so I don't know, but there is very little on the site that's not in FA. The thing is their questions are probably harder if you don't do the flashcards, just by the way they are written and not necessarily that there is hard info.
