Hi, there isn't a specific set of rules for that, usually people take 2,3 nbmes if you take 2 take the first as the date deciding nbme month before and the second one to two weeks before the exam, I have done two nbmes only 12 and 13 I would recommend those two 11 and 7, 7 got the name of most predictive, 11 is probably the easier between the four, 13 I found pretty hard, probably it might underpredicit. But has some intresting anatomy questions aswell as biostat questions, it might be the most similar to the real exam. So to close up, I would choose between those 4. Good luck
