Default do uwsa 1 and 2 cover material not included in nbmes?

do uwsa 1 and 2 (uworld self assessments) cover some info/material not included in nbmes? Or can I skip out on uwsa. I don't need any more assessments. I am in the final stage of my prep where I will just revise my high yield info. At the same time I was thinking of doing UWSA mainly as a learning tool(since they give detailed explanations) as well as assessment(altho I already know where I stand). However if UWSA don't cover material outside of NBMES or UW qbank, then i can skip out of them and focus solely on first aid and pathoma..thanks guys

i will do uwsa1 tomorrow but ive read that it has new material not convered by uworld, however i cannot say the same for nbmes.
how close are you to the test? if you have two weeks or more i dont see why it would be a problem?

my test is first week of june.
it was alright, had new stuff not covered in uworld qbank though, i took UWSA1 + 3 BLOCKS of other qbank for full simulation.
it sure made me feel good and more relaxed you have no idea how tense i am these days, i got 252 thank GOD.
i know is not predictive but it surely boosts your confidence. planning to take uwsa2 in couple of days.

nbme16 i got 224, got really nervous so i think that brought my score a little bit down.
ill be doing nbme15 last week, lets see how it goes, what about you??
