Depends on. If you've taken an NBME at the beginning of preparation, an addition of 20 points over the course of study is very achievable. But if you're doing NBME 1 week or so out after your preparation is over, I'm afraid chances of improvement by such a huge margin is few and far between.

NBME 15 is very predictive, so are NBME 16 and 17.

Go through FA and UW notes in the next 8 days. Take another NBME. Then do a last sprint through FA over 4 days. Relax the day (or a couple of days) before exam (go through the FA tables at the end of the book if you want). Don't panic during exam. Your test day performance easily accounts for +/- 10 points or even more.

More = Better. You may even go for an 8 hour marathon if you wish.
