Info NBME information

For details information about the NBME forms go here
About the official NBME Tests & Forms

There are seven forms each one you have to purchase separately and to know which form is best see this poll
Best NBME Form for USMLE Step 1

And yes you can repeat the form as many times as you want once you pay. But there's no point in doing that. You have to do only once because the only reason for the NBME is to predict your USMLE score and that would be negated if you do the form more than once.

Each form consists of four blocks and each block consists of 48-50 questions.

There's a new type of forms that give you which questions you got wrong (but with no explanation) to learn more about read here NBME Expanded Performance Feedback
