Help Covering all NBME questions!

Would you guys say that uworld and first aid helps one answer at least 90% of the questions on the nbmes? I feel like there are some questions and twisted material that I come across on nbmes that I don't ever recall covering in uworld or first aid. I'm hoping its only because I'm forgetting details from uworld and first aid.

Otherwise, would you say that both usmlerx and kaplan qbank cover material which is not included in uworld and first aid, but is tested on nbmes?

Thanks

I've only done 2 NBME's so far (the most recent ones), but FA covers more like 80-85%. It is hard to score above 230 just knowing FA, no matter how well you know it. But add UWorld and Pathoma, and you can break 250.

I don't know why people say that FA is all you need, and that only a few questions come outside of FA. You will have a hard time just getting the national average with just FA.
