I did every single one. I did the offline NBME 1, 2, 3, and 4. I also did the online ones: 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, and 15.

It's good because it helps you see the concept it multiple ways. There were so many question repeats between the NBMEs it was a shocker. Also, it's a good and easy way to build up your stamina. Doing 200 questions straight without taking a break, means you can do 4 blocks on the real exam without a break.

I've built enough stamina where I can go 2-3 blocks straight without taking a break.
