Default Uworld questions

How many questions or what percent on USMLEWORLD should I be getting to know that I am doing well and prepared to take an NBME? Should I be getting over 65% for each block?

I believe you're looking at it the wrong way! Uworld is not meant to be a predictor of your level of preparation. Its meant to be a learning tool. Yeah, obviously if you're scoring above 70% consistently it is a good sign, but you should be using the NBMEs to see how ready you are, not using Uworld to see how ready for the NBMEs you are.

Use the NBMEs to judge yourself, and prepare accordingly. My advice would be use Uworld as a learning tool, and don't get too ecstatic/demoralised by high/low scores.

Thank you! I really got the wrong impression. People made it seem like if you are getting above 60-65% you are doing well. I will definitely take your advice.
