Cool Please review

Jun 01 - NBME 12 - 215
Jun 10 - NBME 1 - Offline - 224 (#Q right X 1.38)
Jun 12 - NBME 2 - Offline - 229 (#Q right X 1.38)
Jun 20 - NBME 3 - Offline - 227 (#Q right X 1.38)
Jun 26 - NBME 13 - 230
Jul 01 - NBME 7 - Offline - 238 (#Q right X 1.38)

Upcoming:

Online nbme worth it

How did you calculate your score in offline NBME? (#Q right X 1.38)
Is it accurate?
Has any1 tried it?

Well it can't be accurate because the questions are weighted but from numerous user experiences and relating them to your online nbme scores they should be in the +/- 10 range. So, they are not really to help assess your score but are a good fill in between the online tests. I thought $60 X 6 online NBMEs at reasonable intervals for two months was good enough.
