Please take an online NBME. Kaplan simulation and your qbank percentage really don't mean anything UNLESS you take an NBME. You are at the perfect moment to take one anyways, you need to see where you stand and where you need to improve. If you get over 200 on NBME and your exam is in several weeks you are safe and can improve tremendously in that time. Track your progress, take an NBME every 2-3 weeks starting from NOW. I don't understand why people ask the same advice over and over again... there is no secret guys, just take an NBME and see where you are!!

Also, you should have saved the Free 150 for last. That's ok though, just do the NBME online and buy expanded feedback.

I feel like I'm advertising over here... sorry guys. :P

Like I said previously, the BEST correlation is NBME. How do you know where you stand if you haven't taken an NBME yet? There's like at least 5 or 6 NBMEs and I know it might be expensive for some to purchase all of them but I highly recommend doing that and getting ONLINE feedback about each answer you chose incorrectly.

I am yet to begin uworld, I am not familiar with their questioning style, hence I thought that their prediction will be close to accurate
