Default NBME advice

Hi, I just finished my first read with Kaplan books + videos and thinking of doing an offline NBME for a rough estimate of where I stand. Which one should I go for?
My exam will be in about 6 months. I want to save the latest ones (13,15,16,17) for the end. Will do them online.
I also don't want to take NBME 7 at this point cuz I've heard it's a bit difficult. Will do it after finishing FA & some questions maybe.
I'm thinking maybe 3 or 5 or 6 or 11 or 12 for now. Please help me choose an easy one with some predictability too out of these.
Thanks

nbme 11 is somewhat easier than others and also predictive. nbme 3 is the easiest. the best predictor would be an ONLINE nbme not offline.

Thanks for your reply. Yeah online ones are most predictive that's why I'm gonna do them in the last 2-3 months. For now, anything offline that's "somewhat" predictive is enough. So will go for 3 and 11 as you said. Thanks
