Default Which NBME to start with ?

Hello guys ,*
I m done with 2nd reading of the materials(along with RX and 1st Aid) *I will now start uworld and review 1st Aid (3-4 times)*
And I want to start with an NBME to establish a baseline , I looked this up on the web but most answers were old (prior to release of NBME 16)*
And I don't want to do a tough one , I would like to leave the most accurate (16 is said to be the most diagnostic??)* for the last weeks *,*

so which one to start with?


One more thing I recall nothing from what I studied so far , should I do an nbme or go over first Aid again then give a try?

U seem to know what to do.
Yea reserve the newest close to exams like 2weeks to exams
Do them online.
Wen I know how many u want to do then I can suggest which to do now.
But go in increasing order.
If u don't remember anything then take a quick glance through FA then do nbme.

Hello thank for your comments ,
I'll probably do at least 4 NBMEs my exam in April the 6th , (I know u'll say this is a hell plenty of time but I'm a student having clinics and finals )
So do you think it is good to in this order 7, (11 or 12), *15 , 16*
Or what's *ur suggestion ?

I didn't start uworld yet , should I start right now or review 1st aid then do an nbme then start uworld?

Don't waste ur nbmes. It's for assessment so no point to rush and do it now wen u have not done FA and at least 50% of uworld.
Do 11, ,13, ,15& 16 online.
You may do others offline
