it depends when do u wanna take exam, if its your first nbme then take nbme 7, and then 15, thats my suggestion, just wait till someone else also comments on it..
7 is the easiest you wont be scared if u do it first..

I wouldn't do 7 first, this is supposed to be the most predictive one. I would keep it for the week before the exam.
I think 15 would be better

I think now is not a good time for nbme , if you wanna start with nbme early do it like 2,3 months before exam and for now concentrate on your prep material and uworld and study as hard as you can. Keep nbme 13,15 for the last month because although they are predictive but more importantly they are the lastest ones and questions are supposed to reflect latest trends in exams like Stem length , difficulty etc. the previous nbmes are more of a straight recall type of questions n the trends have changed. I would advise you to go with 7,11,12 , if you want , before the last month but keep 13,15 for 30 days before exam and 10 days before exam respectively. Only give exam if you are scoring greater then what you are aiming for
