Good luck everyone! As you count down to test day, just really hammer FA and work on your weak spots. One thing I must stress: make sure you do at least one online NBME, the offlines are not predictive and there is no real way to know your score with the offline test! Even the answers to the offline test have errors from what I've heard. I have seen people get false confidence from doing offline exams and get a bad surprise with their score. Invest in an online NBME, your future is worth it!

I did both 11 and 12 and I think they were both good. I think the questions on my test were more similar to 12 in the way they are written, so I would probably say do 12 if you can't do both.

If you have UWSA 2, do it. It is good practice and they give explanations for the questions. However, it is easier than the real thing; overpredicted my score by 11 points.

Thanks ! My exam is on September 21st (next month). I've been finishing UW and almost done and once that is done Ill just be reviewing, reading FA and taking NBMEs!

Ur NBME 7 score from a month ago predicts a 229 on the step! Thats awesome I'm sure your score has gone up since then! Do you feel that you are ready to take on the exam? (even though one can never feel ready for the exam lol)

Good luck.

i am done with uw twice and now i am doing goljan and want to do all the subjects 2 times and take the test..
