Listening Am I Ready? Is The Score Reliable?

Studied Basically From FA & UW
Read once Kaplan notes & Heard Goljan
UWSA1 430/201
UWSA2 450/206
UW cumulative 62%

Step Schedule for next Week!
Am I ready? or is it to tight the score?

Any Suggestion ...

Arrow Do NBME

It's not too tight if you are talking about a mere passing score.

However, the best reliable predictor of your score is NBME.

Do an NBME tomorrow and see what it predicts.

For step one my advice is you do not want to go into it with "Just passing assessments" you may or may not pass and you may have a low passing score ( I did) you want a 500 on the NBME assessments to know your ready.

I had a 480 and 500 on NBME and still had a low pass.

Good Luck
