I would recommend you start taking NBME which is the one that can give you a good overview if how you are doing overall. So when they give you the results, you can check your weakest areas and focus more on those.

Default Don't wait so much

If you are saying that you are summing up the info, it means you already studied it all. My advice would be don't wait until last moment to take an NBME, what if you get a low score? you will not have enough time to review all the subjects. Take one now, see you weak areas or those that can be improved focus on that and then take another.

Keep in mind that NBME only tell you the wrong answers, they don't give explanations so you will have to lookup the answers yourself.

NBME 7, 11, 12, 15...I think are the ones people consider more accurate. There is even a poll in this forum somewhere where people voted about that, try to take a look

Exam in mid may!
Good!
u have time since u hv finished all the resources.
Don't rush to take nbme else u would be depressed if u hv not summed up all the stuff. Taking nbme at the end of march is perfect plan so u have 6 weeks to make amends. Good luck.

Default thank you

ya i really need to sum up coz i just gave one reading and i am so confused i dont know what i know and what i dont if i gave a quick reading of Fa in one week that will place things in order in my mind. i will give Nbme at end of mar, and i will stoll have six weeks, i still did not use the one time extension and i pray God i should stick on to my scheduled exam in may without postponing further, but that all depends on my Nbme scores , hoping fir the best . thank you for the advice.
