Have you done uworld already? After you finish that qbank, take an nbme. You'll see when you're ready.

What do you mean you don't know what score it should be?? In the first chapter of FA, there's a graph that has the average step 1 scores accepted by program directors for each specialty. Look there for the target score you want to set for yourself.
