It depends if you're planning to take them. More likely, you will want to... They're just half the price of nbmes WITH answers and explanations available. However, if you're undecided, you can always buy them later...

uwsa is of little practical use

I think that you can go for it... some people use it as a confidence booster... Plus you can practice and learn something out of it.

You should definitely get it with the self assessments...I made the mistake of buying by qbank without it and then I went back later and bought them anyways lol....there's nothing wrong with having a couple of more self assessments at your disposal
