hi
nbme is national board of medical examiners its the boards for the amgs

they offer exam 1234567 11, 12 these exams are examples of what the content will look like in the actual exam
some people do them online for 45 dollars or 60 dollars with extended feedback and some people do them offline and analyze each question as a study tool, instead of online as an assessment tool.
you can find them online if you look up nbme in google or offline in the forums
the offline answers are not always correct so it makes it harder to assess yourself this way
i have done them all a few times offline and some online it helped alot to learn stuff I have no special recommendation it will be up to you to do online or offline.
I would say usmlerx reflects the nbmes the most i just got that q bank recently and I like it alot.
gooooooooooooooood luck

what did you decide on the nbme?

online or off line?

it makes a huge difference
after doing some of them online I would dont touch the offline until you did it online first then analyze offline or you wont have a way to assess where you are
