Angry NBME extended feedback is a total joke!

I swear, the NMBE folks are so full of it!
I paid $60 for the test so I could get the extended feedback, and they don't even tell you the correct answers for the ones you got wrong! Plus you can't go back to see any of the questions you answered either.
What kind of feedback is that??? There is no way to learn from it if you can't go back over the test; as far as i can tell it's purely an assessment tool and the "feedback" is one big rip-off.
Makes one want to do all the NBMEs offline and just pay for a couple to assess yourself- see who gets ripped off then

Yeah, it's a big rip off. I did the same mistake

Anyway, you can now post the question that you got wrong here in the forums and see if people can help you answer them

I think some time later they will make both types in the same price

They tell you which questions you got wrong, but they don't tell you what is the correct answer for them.

Yeah they show you the question you got wrong with the wrong answer you selected, but not the correct answer or any explanation why it's wrong. They also give you a graph that shows which subjects you are borderline in, or if it's above or below border line. That's it.

Does anyone know the difference between that and the one for $50?
