Listening How am i doing?

Have done KLN notes and videos x1, Done couple BRS and HY books and 1 quick read through Goljan, and 100% uworld done, with 70% avg 1st 50%, and 80% last 50% of qbank, have gone 1 time through FA adding Uworld and Pathoma to it. All this in like 10 months..

Just did UWSA1 got a 255, and plan on doing NBME 7 next week after i do a quick review of FA

I also have scheduled Kaplan Live lectures this coming week as a review, to work on weak areas at the same time and do some FA reviews and Kaplan Qbanks in between... In need of 260+, do you think im in good shape?

When is your exam? Uwsa 255 is good but as you know they over estimate,,!
Do couple of NbMEs like 13,15 to see where you stand!

But it looks like you doing good
Just keep on studying and reviewing your week areas

Well im not sure what "overpredictive" really is....Because every step 1 exam is different....

But....i took all NBMES online....and from what i felt 7 was relatively easy
12 was the hardest...

My exam looked more like 7+15(13)

IMO dont worrie what predicts or overpredicts....just do as many NBMEs as you can afford
And go over them after that

Just started the live lectures, so cant give too much feedback about it, but i think the live lectures are good if you dont understand the book or the videos for some reason, kind of find weird if you dont lol.. They oversimplify stuff and dont get into much details like Uworld Qbank does or NBME do, so in the end you are by yourself figuring out the last 10% detailed stuff tested in the USMLE1

Did NBME 7 and got 650/257, got only 13 wrong, made some stupid mistakes... Anyways wanted to ask how hard are the other nbmes compared to this one because i felt it too easy to be true, like 40 per block were easy, then 10 were kind of tough and had to think about it.
