I got 64% on UW unused questions today.
At the end of the section, still had 10 minutes left.
I fill like it sucks!
Any advice?
Thanks!

UW% does not mean much. Use nbme to see where you stand and go from there

I am actually planing on doing timed, online NBME 17 on Wednesday.
Have you done it?
Any ideas how it correlates with real thing?
Thanks for your help!

I have done it. Question format and length is comparable between form 17 and the real deal. Start with forms 15, 16 and take form 17 two to three weeks before the exam. These three should give you a better picture of where you are right now and what are the weak areas you should focus. As far as how it correlates to the real thing, I'll be able to answer that in a couple of weeks when I get the results!

So, that's the thing. I have already done 13,15 anf 16.
13 was the last one, I did it 1 year ago and I got 213. Than I was planing to do another one, but I,head to stop the preparation process on Spring due to some family issues. I restarted studying in summer and I think it's time to take step forward.

The things its alot harder the step i think so scores are much lower. what i did was i did the questions and look at answers. I took notes. I took the stem and the answer made notes. I found it helpful like i learned alot of stuff just by doing that.
