Help Exam on Mar 22, Which NBME Form?

I'm trying to decide which to take.. I don't want to take the easiest or the hardest I feel like. I don't want to fail or get an uber good score (I don't think this will happen, my confidence isn't exactly high right now). Which would/did you guys do first?

since your exam is so close you need a real indication of whether you are ready or not.

do form 7 or 11

It depends I guess... What do you prioritize the most when you're this close to the exam?

For prediction?

Like Dr. Nick said, go with nbme 7 or 11. Between the two, they say 11 is pretty hard. Nbme 7 is also hard, but they say it has more straightforward FA questions.

Foresight on how the exam probably is?

For this, there are nbmes 13 or 11. NBME 13 is the newest, so theoretically, it should mimic the exam. NBME 11 bec. they say it is also close to the exam format.

A little bit of both?
Then, NBME 11.

This is just me and I'm not really the best person to tell you which one. I'm just trying to help with the thought process.

They're all hard I think. Brace yourself. I think it's best if you do all three.

Good luck!!

Just took NBME Form 7... and did ok!

I didn't do amazing, but not as terrible as I thought... I thought I crashed and burned on that exam... wow... but anyway...

Stupid question: Can I look over the questions and answers b/c i can't figure it out maybe i'm just a little delirious after the exam... ... I know you guys talk about offline nbme 7, is that what offline is for...? Anyway, thanks for the pushing me to do it... I feel so much better. I was going to put off taking any nbme (due to my fear of failing, which i know is silly)... but now I know I CAN DO THIS!!!! Thanks again.

Now to take a break and go to the food store, then back to studying.
