Take NBME 7, focus on your weak areas demonstrated from that test, go over FA atleast once & your UW notes. If your NBME 7 score is around 230 then go ahead and take the test! But if its satisfactory but not up to 230 then its your call. If you can't postpone it then just focus on your weak areas and you should be good! GOOD LUCK!

What do you think about NBME 7 and 6 Hope2pass ? How predictive are those?

Default Nbme 6 & 7

Look at this poll about the Best NBME for Step 1.
Best NBME Form for USMLE Step 1
However, I think this poll was created long before NBME 11 & 12 came along! So I am still not sure how predictive those are, but from what I have heard they are pretty hard and should always do the new NBMEs anyways.

My exam is Saturday, so I totally understand your anxiety. I think what might help is to really focus on understanding when you read FA and not just read it. When I read, like today I was reading through heart development, I have a sheet of paper and whenever I read something with multiple steps, I try to scribble it from memory on the sheet of paper, then if i remember something from another chapter, I write it down too to try to integrate things. These aren't neat notes that I keep, it's just to see if I can write it. What I often find is that sometimes when I think I understand something and try to rewrite it in my own words, I have trouble doing it and so I need to read it again or look up something. When you passively read you don't really know what you don't know. I don't have much else suggestions, just keep working at it and good luck!
