hey ya both 15 and 16 r difficult but i think nbme 16 is more difficult dan 15.

nbme 16 has some new weird questions types of the same topics earlier covered in nbmes. it is worth looking into it.


i thnk both shud b taken both 15 and 16.


best of luck to u and pplzzz all gods bless me..

I believe nbme 15 would be best left for the end as 16 is much tougher than 15.

You want to have a high confidence level prior to the exam and I think knowing your weaknesses from form 16 will help you and 15 will boost your confidence. You don't want to panic just prior to the exam.

Just a thought.

i wish you well with your studies.
