Everyone feels the same before step 1! You can never be really 100% prepared for the exam, and with your last nbme score, you are definitely ready (assuming you have been consistent with your nbme scores). If you are doing well on nbme's (also give free 150 if you haven't already), it might not be a great idea to postpone the exam any longer. Delaying the exam, which I am sure you have heard, has not really shown to greatly improve the score and can sometimes decrease your performance as well. However, it is entire up to how you feel. If you are comfortable with your performance in nbme, I would say go ahead and give the exam. Good luck

Do the entire thing. If you score above 85%, I think you should be more than ready.

Free 150 is not really predictive. Just from my experience and that of my friends, everyone scored 235 or above with 85% or more.
