UWSA, it is good to boost your confidence in the exam, the Nbme 7 is good to see your weakness prior the exam.. =) and maybe it can shows some question during the real exam...noones knows =)

I'd do 7 and 12.

Why take SA1 when you havent taken NBME 12.

UWSA tends to over estimate, wouldnt feel comfortable with it.

I took NBME 1 month ago ..Now i have already subscribed UWSA1 ,will take it 2morrow. and NBME 7 after week.

I know that UWSA1 overpredict ,but it will not affect my preparation.

You want to give enough time from NBME 7 to use it as a learning tool before exam. If your exam is in 10 days, that will be what 2 days before exam???

I'd do NBME 7 now, use it as learning tool to go over any last min weakness, then since you want to, take UWSA1 right before.

NBME 12 is great and I'll still advice to take it over UWSA1 even if you already have that one.
