I think it was helpful. If you haven't taken a computerized exam before and are new to prometric procedures then this will help you with anxiety and familiarity issues. The real exam is very much like UW, too, but I feel like you could benefit from getting experience in exam like conditions prior to exam day.

If you have used UWorld or downloaded the free practice exam from the official website, you have pretty much seen what the real exam will be like. That being said, I still took the practice exam and I would suggest you do so. You won't get any new questions from the ones you can get from the official website, but its good to get a feel for the environment, and to see the entire registration process and how it works. Its more so that you feel comfortable, and I think that's very important come the day of the exam.

Pretty much, there is no reason to not take the practice exam. This is one of the most important exams of your life, so you may as well go the extra mile to make sure you do the best you can .
