You wasted a perfect Form 7 of NBME as u have already seen the questions.
NBME is to judge if you are prepared so its better to take it online after reading the entire matter.
You have Uworld to know what sort of question they ask.
After you read Behavioral science once it will be much simpler for you.Read Kaplan notes along with the videos which are of great help.
Hope it helps
Best of luck.!!

yeah, I agree with people saying that it is necessary to do NBME online. That's the real deal, if you want (pacing, random qs, etc). Really it is true, that those are tools to assess you readiness. Correlations only work if you do it online, just % will not give you the right perspective. Their feedback is helpful!

Don't wait until the "end", some people are unpleasantly surprised, control your knowledge as you study. It is not a waste of "good NBMEs", it's called studying - know your weak areas and work on them!

I found KLN Behavioral very well written and quite liked it. One thing for sure - with their lectures I'm doing SOOOOOOO much better in this subject Before I was like: "no, again???", now I'm like: "cool, One more point for me!!! yay"

No, it is not bad, really, I think their feedback would help you even more. At least, it helped me greatly.

But I also took NBME 7 and made fifty something mistakes in 4 blocks (I don't remember the exact number and cannot find the printout of my feedback )It only gives 196 on exam though. I guess it doesn't say anything to you because you've done only 2 blocks and we don't know how many mistakes you could have done in the other 2 blocks. So, I would recommend to take the complete nbmes and online and at least coupe of them with feedback. Thus, you will work on your weak areas and later just control you possible score.

I also haven't started UW yet. I only did 62% of Qbank, and now after they've changed the way they provide it, I don't know, maybe I need to start UW and then do qbank again, because they will not keep my history anyway, so why bother?

I don't think that it was a waste. I still think that 5,6,7,11 and 12 are still good forms to judge the readiness. None of these is perfect. It only depends on when people take it. Remember, there was a time when nbme 7 was the newest one, so people kept it till the end, did it right before the exam and sure enough, got USMLE score around that one on nbme 7.
Naturally, if they started controlling their score earlier with older ones, the score was lower because they still were studying. Now the same will happen to 11 and 12.
