Default Need Advice Please Help

Hey guys, needing some advice here please. A week out from taking Step 1. Gone from a 165/170 back in March (not sure which NBMEs--they were given through my school), to a 205 a couple of weeks ago (NBME 12), to a 228 two days ago (NBME 15). My goal is 230+, made some dumb mistakes on NBME 15, think I easily could've gotten that.

Question being, I cannot decide if I should take NBME 16 or 17 within the next week, or focus more on reviewing FA/Pathoma/Uworld. I've finished UWorld once, and am hoping to get through most of my missed questions. I've read that those two forms are fairly difficult, and fear doing poorly on them/hurting my confidence. But at the same time, I see people say do as many NBMEs as possible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Repeat FA again if possible. Also, do the newest nbme since they predict the score the closest. I would go with 17
