Its going ok. I did bad on my NBME's recently so that was a set back. But it was NBME 5 and I've heard its quite old. I get a little nervous when I have to take an NBME and perform low on it! Im studying this week and will take an NBME earlier next week to assess myself. My aim is anywhere around 220 or so!

Hows your prep coming along?

Is normal to get nervous, just control it because remember that if you get to anxious you will not be able to concentrate and perform at your maximal level.
Relax. I know is hard, I'm on the same boat but I try to stay calm.
Do for sure. NBME 7, 11 and 12.
I did 12 last week.
This week I'm doing 7 and next week I will do 11 and UWSA2.

best of luck
i ve an advice
do not consider any nbme as old!
my real xam was like nbme5 6 or 7 there was nothing closer to form11 n 12
go thru all the forms do them offline if u ve them n check how much u know the things they ve asked n which things u need to work on take it as part of preperation plan not as score predictor
i had same issue as u n i got 221 n u can see my post too
best of luck
