Question UWorld versus NBME

Which self assessment test correlates better with the actual step 1 score?
uworld or NBME? I have my exam in 1 month and i just took UWSA 1 and got a score of 710 (estimated step 1 score 257). I haven't taken NBME yet but I plan to take it in next 10 days. Some people say UWSA overestimates your score. Is that so? If yes, by how much?

Yeah UWSA does overestimate scores for most people, but with your score of 257 on UWSA 1, I would say you are in excellent shape right now. Take NBME with confidence, and I am sure you will be fine. I will post my correlation with UWSA as soon as I get my step score.
