Listening 1 week to go...should I do another NBME?

I did 7 blocks today (3 blocks from UW and Qbank and UWSA 2) and by the end I was EXHAUSTED. I am wondering if it's worth it to do that again on Monday or Tuesday (exam on Saturday) to help me get used to the length of the test. If I do it I'd probably do NBME 7 or 12 and the free 150. Should I do that or should i just keep reading FA until my test?

yup, I think you should do at least one!

well i guess theres no harm in doing another nbme. but a lot of my friends who've given the exam say that you somehow just manage to get thru on the day of the exam. flight or fight or whatever kicks in. all you need to worry about is just the breaks youre taking and keeping yourself calm and focused on the next block. It is quite exhausting, and dont think you could do much to change that...just dont burn yourself out too close to the exam, your last score was great man (uwsa 252!). So...
