USA IMG wants to take the exam in the US, bad idea??

Hi all,

I've heard that it's better to take the USMLE exams (1 and 2ck) in your own region ( middle east in our case)... because if you take them in the US then you'll be compared with american test takers and you'll probably score lower than you would have had you taken the test and performed exactly the same in another region.

could this be true?
