Default Finally doing NBME's tomorrow!

Hello people. So I'm FINALLY taking the NBME tomorrow. Let's kill this! My question from you guys who've taken it is, which one do I start with? 12 is considered the hardest, yes? So I wouldn't want to start on a negative note, lol. Kindly advice what you people have recently done! Also, do I have to count the questions I got wrong, myself? Or does the offline form calculate it for you?

PS. I'm taking them offline cause of cost issues. Plan to do atleast one or two forms online after one week.

The offline forms are just screenshots of the questions, so that means you have to calculate the number corrects yourself. And to approximate the score, multiply the #correct by 1.4 and it will give you your approximate 3 digit score. And to start off, I would suggest take any NBME you like, but try to save NBME 13 and 7 for later.
