Well, I ADVICE YOU TO TAKE ONE NOW.

Reason is because it guages how much you know NOW...and how much work you need to do before the exam. If you wait 10 days, you have a fewer amount of time to work on your errors. So take one now, then take another in two weeks time.

Hey do nbme only after finishing uworld in ur case.
Nbme has two effects!
1. Depressive effect if u don't do well
2. Excitatory effect when u score well.

With ur plan of study and time left for the exams, pls do nbme only as u have planned.
