Q Banks are LEARNING tools. I also asked this questions before i think. Only NBME can tell you where you are slacking and where you are beasting

This statement is 100% correct... Please do NOT use qbank %'s as a gauge of how you will score... You need to master the material within the question banks AND use them to build you test-taking stamina... The NBME's are the only tool you should be using to gauge how well you are going to do on the real exam.

You won't believe how many students I've spoke to who claim very high % in the UW qbank only to go an fail their step 1 exams.. the reason usually being that they've boosted their % by doing the qbank 2-3 times and simply falsely boosting their % by remembering questions... this is a fatal strategy for your scores. Use them as learning tools, NBME's to gauge and get feedback, then go back and fix your weaknesses.

Best of luck!
