Question should I take another NBME??

Hi guys!!!

I am really close to the exam...5 days from now..
Till this far..
did...NBME 7 ( 25 days ago).....score--- 600 (eqv of 244)
did..UWSA 1 (17 DAYS AGO) ....score----590 (eqv of 238)
did..UWSA 2 ( 2 DAYS AGO) .....SCORE .....650 (eqv of 248)
.........are the predictions by UWSA overestimating???
n do you think I should do another NBME????
And can you guys please advice me on what to really focus on so I can get the maximum out of this 5 day period???
Need some boost to my confidence....hope I am ready for this exam...

I know how you feel. My exam is really soon too. I did some of the other NBMES and UWSA 1. I have to do NBME 7 in 2 days. From my experience so far I think that the UWSA was harder than the NBMEs that I took, but my estimated scores for all of them were pretty similar. You're probably in good shape for the exam. I think you should keep doing questions from a qbank just to keep your mind fresh and review/skim over your books to make sure you remember things. Check out this thread too. I didn't know how to add it so I just put the link...

Good luck! I hope we do well.

I haven't done any NBMEs, but I have done the two UWSA exams. I think they test very fine concepts and details, so if your score is that high in them (650), then I think it means you have an excellent grasp of the concepts, that will help you manage any type of questions.

So I'd say just keep doing questions and going over your notes these 5 days. You're almost done, so keep up!! GL.
