then u must not have tried the new nbme 11 12 coz i heard there stem are really long.
i personally did nbme 7 and its stem were longer than 5 or 6.

They recently changed to longer stems.however, in the main exam i heard some questions are very short to balance .In general we have to practice long stems coz this is what the trend is shifting towards .i will know for sure when i take the exam in about 2 weeks

@sfsheran: Yep, I heard nbme 11 and 12 questions are long. You might want to try them. Just to be prepared for long stems in the exam.

@step_enhancer: Good luck in your exam!
