Take an old NBME after your first read (6 or 7). Find your weaknesses. Tailor a study plan to attack those weaknesses. Reassess with NBME 11 or 12 half way through. Continue to attack new weaknesses. Assess with NBME 11 or 12 before your test to predict score. All the while, use USMLEWorld + Kaplan or Rx with FA and ancillary resources.
