All NBME's turned out to be completely equally matched...
I took NBME 3 five days before exam and it underpredicted my score by 4 points!

All the NBME's (except for offline) predict your score 5 points... Not necessarily -5 points...

Good Luck!

Hey, but an NMBE score of 230 what exactly does that equate to? one website says 160, someone else said 80, another person said it equates to the actual usmle score...so is my score really as bad as what i think it is?

NBME 3 digit score varies from 140 (not sure what is the lowest) to 800. so 230 on this scale is very low and you definitely need more time and some good review.

USMLE 3 digit score ranges between 140 and 292, so 230 on this scale is above average.
