Question When to do NBME? Exam in one month

My step 1 exam is next month on the 25th, haven't taken UWSAs or NBME yet, when should I do both of these and which one should I do first? heard that NBME 7 is the toughest and it corresponds to the original scores ..... any suggestions to do any other NBME forms......???

DO a nbme form now...3 or 6 usually the scores are +/- 10 the actual score !
So do one now and do a self assessment.. weak areas and and did u reach ur target score and borderline areas !

i think u need to change ur exam date 30 days prior if u want to change or else will get fined...so do it asap and see

Nbme 7 is the most accurate . UWSA maybe -10 ....but both are good to build mental toughness.......so keep nbme for the last ....after final prep........so see if u truly ready.....if u do two nbme back to back......the the score is more accurate
SO start doing the Uwsa and nbme ......keep a set of nbme for the last week...to do a mock exam of 8 hrs and the rest do weekly basis....while covering the weak areas
