Take one nbme 2 months before exam date to get the feel.have a raw idea where u stand and also what approach to take.

then take nbme when u feel lil confident that can be 6 weeks or 4 weeks before exam(diff from person to person)

last month atleast 2 nbmes specially new ones nbme 11 and 12 coz main exam have some very similar Qs to these forms.

and then last week you can do free 150s +/- nbme 7 to get confidence coz free 150 are easy and some Q repeat in main exam.

take UWSA 1&2 for practice and learning (can be taken whenever)

(some ppl take less no. of nbmes -for them nbme 11 12 and free 150s are vital)
