I don't see any reason not to do it. There are plenty of NBME tests... I feel like you should do one whenever you feel like doing one, just so that you always have an idea of where you stand.

As far as which one to do, I'd say it depends on your overall schedule. I think 11 and 12 are probably the best ones, so if you only have time to do two, do one of those two. But if you have time to do 4 or 5 NBME tests, then you might want to save 11/12 for later and instead start with 7 or 13.
