Question Do I need to do other NBMEs!

Hello
I am done with NBME 13 (My first NBME) .. I dont need any more assements for my performance..
but I was wondering, is it usefull to solve the other NBMEs (Offline) to see the ideas and tricks in the questions??.. Do they usually repeat questions from them??
Its kinda annoying to solve questions when you dont know the exact answer and there is no explanation.. but if they tend to repeat some tricky questions there, I may consider solving some of them..

So I need an advice here

13 is very challenging and needs critical thinking[once u break up the options, then they become silly questions and easy]... if ur not satisfied with ur [12] score, do 13 after hardwork, as an assesment
if u did 12 online,, do 13 offline as a challange.. if u have time that is

i did forms 7, 11, 12 and 13 all online. the difference between my highest and lowest has been 10 points. so giving more nbme will give a range of score i think.
paradoxically i got the highest score in the toughest one (13) and the lowest in the easier one (12)
