Arrow NBME 5 score vs. Real score

Hi all, I am currently preparing for STEP 1 and am thinking of taking NBME 5 soon (because I have already taken the other NBMEs)...well, I have heard that NBME 5 is the easier one and therefore over predicts your score...so, I wanted to find out from those who took NBME 5 while they were preparing for STEP 1...what was your predicted score from NBME 5 and what was your REAL score? (this way I can get an estimate of how much over prediction does NBME 5 do). Thank you for your help!:sorry:

All nbme exams should be very very closely correlated with the USMLE exam.

But from this forum, Everyone mentions nbme 7 to be most predictive of your USMLE grade..

But that shouldn't matter, all the nbme exams are very good predictors.
