Did you try NBME 13 before = can you compare their difficulties?

Default Step 1 scores matter a lot

Look at your requirements, what do you want to work as? As a IM doctor, or a higher speciality doctor. This score can be improved to a better one, all you need is interest.

Don't just concentrate on the weak points; Make your strengths more stronger.

If you can extend do it right away.
you could use more time if you're looking at 240+
giving it one month is a bit risky for my liking.
Also do 16 after this one, its also very predictive.
GL!

Just took NBME 15 - first 3 block were OK, last block required more conceptualizing knowledge - less memory question, overall scored 228 ( 500 NBME score) - in total 38 wrong questions:

Yes, I took NBME 7 at August 29 - scored 217 - I felt that NBME 7 is just meticulous in little details - can't apply basic concepts - will do mistakes between A and B = toward NBME 15 it is getting more conceptual knowledge - you will meet some very interesting points, personally some facts I have never seen through UW or Kaplan Quitestions Banks.
