There is no way to check the answers to NBMEs. You can go to the Step 1 forum studentdoctor.net and search for the NBME 12 thread; students are discuss the answers there but again there is no official way to get the answers or questions once you take the exam.

I took nbme 7 and thought that it was not too tough. Although I wasn't pleased with my score, I agree with the areas where I'm weak. I remember thinking that they omitted some topics like Hematology. Did not have any leukemia question, which was strange to me. Didn't test pharm heavily in my opinion.

I keep hearing from people that the real exam qs are very long, nbme 7 is not like that. I know that they randomly put qs in blocks, so it probably resembles real exam in that the first 2 blocks in my test were easy, then the third one was hard, with longer qs, I had to guess the last 2 qs, because of lack of time, the last one was easier.
Overall, great learning tool! take it early, so you can work on some problematic areas!
