If you only have 2 weeks to go, I think you should take NBME 11 or 12 online this week...

I feel like taking NBME's stresses me out! (wonder what it would be like when I have to go for the real thing though lol)

After receiving a low score on NBME 5, I think I should go over FA once more (memorize it more thoroughly) and then do some UW questions n then take an NBME. Even though NBME 3 and 5 are old .. Hopefully I do good on those NBME's (planning on taking them hopefully on Monday).

Hey good luck on ur exam tomorw!

Yes, Doing NBME i found out for me too stressful but be calm, im in your same boat,, i do get great score at Qbanks/uW/Rx/ but on NBME i get tooooo stressssful...

gotta dominate that, btw NBME is the hardest out there. =) You should go for 11 or 12... =) Take it easy and dont overlook the question as i did. If you dont have time, give the free 150 at least, so can boost your confidence.. =)

Thanks.

Yeah, my plan for the next 2 weeks is to -

1) Do UW a 2nd time as much as I can.
2) Review my notes/images from UW.
3) Memorize FA inside out.
4) Take NBME 11, 12, and 7 (in that order.. leaving 7 for 2 to 3 days before the real exam).
5) On the last day before my exam I will just relax and do nothing but the free 150 questions n call it a day lol
