Question 8 Hour FULL simulation step1 test

Hi guys im planning to do at least 2 simulation 8 hour tests:

im planning to do it with UWSA1 + NBME16 one time and the 2nd time UWSA2 + NBME15 (last week before test)
my question is.... isnt this TOO HARD and overkilling due to the difficulty of the questions?? or it is recommended doing it like that

i would like to hear from people who have done already step1
and did simulation 8hour test before the real step1. HOW did you guys do it??
or any suggestions how to do an 8hour test
please help thanks!

hi pisho...i have not done this..but i have planned the same thing the way you have..I would advise u to do the NBME the first half...since they are more imp and better score predictors...I have planned it to do on the same day of exam day..for eg if i am taking my exam on monday...i would schedule both the 8 hr exam on prev two mondays...so that u r kind of used to and mentally prepared to handle the eight hour ordeal
