I would recommend you do at least form 7, 11, and 12 online if you can afford
and do forms 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1, in the same order

I did form 7, 11,12 online and 4, 5, 6 offline

I could find around 40 to 50 questions similar to NBME in the real exam.

I need some assistance in how I should go about. My exam is 10 days later. I don't feel like studying anymore (death of a close friend yesterday and terminally ill health of a beloved). I am done with my Uworld with a 74%. I am doing FA. I did NBME 12 on the second day that I started my Uworld and I got 190, which really demoralized me. Well, I feel more comfortable after finishing the Uworld. But, I don't know what to do now. I want to finish FA once more and take NBME 11,7,6 online. DOes that sound fine? What should I do for neuroanatomy ?

Please help with this!

Thanks! Can you please tell me what do you mean by the offline NBME? I have no clue about it. Also, my subscription for Uworld has ended I did make notes of the incorrect and doubtful questions (as many as I could) and I printed them. I think I will go through that atleast twice. Hope that helps me.
