I haven't done my test yet. Hopefully, I will next October. However, from what I've read in the forums, the last weeks, once you have gone through all the subjects, are for rapid review, such as the First Aid or Med Essentials, and questions, as many as you questions as you can.

Also, I've been told you should be practicing doing blocks of questions, like in the real test. First you can start doing one or two blocks per session, and on the days right before the exam you should have ascended to doing seven or eight blocks per session.

I'm sure you'll do great. I wish you the very best.

do NBME 11 or NBME 7
they predict ur score accurate and u will know ur week area in which chapter
in my case iwas week in cns and they were right so focus on ur week area
if ur score is good take the exam if not try to postpone it

Def do 11 and 12. Rapid review is good idea for last 2 weeks. If you have DIT then do that for the areas you only covered once (for me it is easier to remember something if it is been read to me and/or explained, sometimes hahaha). Do not worry about only doing 40% of UW, if you are improving then that is all that matters.
