Default About NBMEs?

Hey Guys,

I have been studying step1 for nearly 9 months.I took nbme 13 form last month and it was bad. (400)

I have finished FA for 2 times and checked my UW notes and questions again.

My test date is 2 weeks later.I am thinking to take another NMBE in 3 days.
I want to take an easy one because i don't want to discourage before exam.
Which NBME test do you recommend me ?

Best,
Matt

Delay ur exam! Go iver uw again. The whole thing. Get a bew subcription. And read goljan audio lecture notes. Then take an nbme. Then giv ur exam only if u hav get a good score! all if this wont take more than a month.

wait... did you say you're averaging 85% on uworld blocks? if thats the case, thats pretty damn good man. Maybe the nerves got to you when you were doing NBME.

Haha no it was not my first time.
When i got 400 from NBME13 , i bought for 1 month UW and still solving questions again.I have solved nearly %80 of it again and now i can do %80avarage.

But in first time it was %60.

I am praying so much for that will work in my next NBME.Btw i am thinking to take FORM7 .
