Don't do the offline NBME. Do the official ones.
You are doing a huge mistake by not doing the official NBME.

Excuse me rebaj but you are totally wrong. There is no formula for nbmes. There are many examples in the forum where this is explained. For example, I got 74% correct and had a prediction of 440 and another friend of mine had 75% correct with an nbme of 570... So, think again when you try to do offline nbmes.

I agree - it is dangerous to rely on scores from offline NBMEs. No formula works accurately. You really should do as many online NBMEs as possible as they are the only gauge that consistenly determine your level for the exam. Besides - you have to get used to the idea of sitting through 7 hours in a row so start with at least 4 with the NBMEs
