Useless in my opinion. Closest predictor is NBME 16, considering I did all NBMEs online and UWSA's.

Good luck

Fereshteh. Let me say this clearly. UWSA are NOT good predictors of the exam. I got 260's in both of them but scored a 240 in the actual exam. But UWSA consist of an excellent set of questions. Take them as extra 400 uworld questions. It's a bonus! If you have the money, go for them. Definitely worth the time and money. Old NBME's are pointless. The paper is nothing like the old NBMEs. The real deal has evolved into something new.
