Idea! Kaplan Qbank is perfect for last month prep

If you have already done UW, and haven't done Kaplan Qbank yet, go with it. It's perfect for last month prep, as the questions are very much like the real exam than UW (which is way more difficult). You'll be preparing yourself without getting frustrated over excessively difficult questions, keeping your anxiety levels in check, which is of crucial importance at that time of prep. At the same time, you can read some FA or your own notes. A week before the exam, take NBME 7 to predict your score.

That's what I did for my Step 1 prep.

Good luck.

Idea! Free = offline

I hope by free copy u r pointing towards OFFLINE version NBME
if that is the case, everyone suggest to use NBME as evaluation tool which is only valid if done ONLINE
offline is illegal.
offline can never evaluate scores properly

so i suggest to use ONLINE legal version (45$) check it out here About the official NBME Tests & Forms
