Hiba, as you know there are 6 active NBMEs and youve taken one and your exam is in a month, you need to do 15,16,17,18 and uwsa's.

i suggest you give one right away, all that studying, you should assess yourself before you booked a date.

and all nbmes have to be spaced out adequately, and in the last month, advise is do uworld questions so as to build stamina for the main exam with getting a good percentage.

You need to be thorough with uw and fa to get the easy questions right, cant do anything about wtf questions.

if you need to discuss it out, would be happy to do it.

Hi Hiba! I noticed a trend with NBME 16/17 and actual score. Might want to give those a try.

Agree with this! Though I did not have NBME 18 while I was doing prep, i am assuming since thats the most recent one, it will also be the most relevant.

Most of the time, the answer always lie in the question in those cases. You just have to read the question properly and choose one that is the best fit for that question (as generic as this sounds). Think as vague and clinically as possible.
