I think you'll get the hang of it once you keep doing more questions. Don't use it to assess yourself, rather use it as a learning tool.

If you can, do a 2nd read of FA simultaneously.

Hey do the best you can. Read FA at least twice, and read the explanations of all the right and wrong answers on UW, but do NBMEs 13, 15 and 16 online few weeks before your actual exam, the scores you get from these tests are highly predictive of your actual exam score. If you are pleased with the scores you get, then go for the exam in December, but if you're not, don't rush it, extend your eligibility period (which is $70).

You only get one shot at step 1, so try to get the highest you can.

Good luck.
